Rizzo went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI against the Reds on Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That 3-for-38 slump seems to be over as, Rizzo feasted on the Reds over the weekend. In his last five games, he has five home runs and 10 RBI. For the year he has eight home runs and 21 RBI, both figures second in the National League to Bryce Harper.

Rizzo got a piece of the offensive party in Thursday's 16-0 rout of the Reds, going 1-for-6 with a three-run homer and two runs scored.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's been a slow start to the year for the star first baseman, who's still under the Mendoza Line, but has homers in consecutive games and 16 RBI in as many contests. We'll take the bad with the good until he inevitably lifts the ol' average back to its normally solid level.

Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a home run and RBI-single in the loss against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After a strong start to the year, Rizzo has gone cold at the plate, so it was good to see him get multiple hits Wednesday. Coming into the game, Rizzo was 2-for-31 (.065) in the last 10 contests. Fortunately, he does have four home runs and 13 RBI.

Rizzo went 0-for-3 with a walk against the Cardinals on Tuesday. In his last 11 games, he is 3-for-38 with just two RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo cost plenty on draft day this year, and though he's driven in 11, nine of those RBI came in the first three days and his slash line is down to .163/.339/.388 slash line. It's possible you could pry him away from a nervous owner at a slight discount.

Rizzo was 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo and Jorge Soler went back-to-back with solo homers in the fourth versus Christan Bergman. It was the slugger's first dinger since Apr. 7 versus the D-Backs, ending a seven-game drought. Despite the power surge Saturday, Rizzo is only 2-for-22 over his last six games, and is only hitting .200 over his first 11 games.

Rizzo went 0-for-4 against the Reds yesterday, his fourth hitless game in a row.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo drove in six runs on Apr. 7, but since then he's just 1-for-22 with the lone hit a single. On the plus side, he's drawn five walks in that span. There's absolutely no reason to worry about him right now.

Rizzo went off in Arizona on Thursday, going 3-for-6 with a triple, a homer, six RBI and three runs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Yeah, that's the stuff. Three games into the season, Rizzo already has two homers, nine RBI and more walks (three) than strikeouts (two). Last season's 17 steals seem unlikely to be repeated, but it wouldn't at all be surprising to see Rizzo set new career marks in homers and batting average this year.

Rizzo is slashing .304/.404/.587 this spring.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo was removed from a Tuesday's game a little early, but that was just a precaution. He's been filling the box score all spring, as he has three home runs, two stolen bases, 10 runs, and 12 RBI in just 46 at-bats. He's primed for a big season, and may be the best first baseman on the board after Paul Goldschmidt.

Rizzo left Tuesday's spring training game early, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo collided awkwardly with Andrew Lambo, so the early removal was likely a result of that. The nature of the setback is currently unclear, and it's possible the move was simply a precautionary one, but the club will likely offer more clarity on the situation if it turns out to be anything worth monitoring.

Rizzo returned to the lineup Thursday and went 0-for-1 with a walk, run, and stolen base.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rizzo missed a game after being hit by a pitch Tuesday, but the injury was minor. His lofty position on most cheatsheets should be unaffected by this week's events.
