New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo famously had a really close bond with Chicago Cubs manager David Ross during their time together in the Windy City, but it was actually the Cubs’ skipper that may have helped Rizzo identify an ailment that had been plaguing him for months.
Rizzo was shut down for the season this week as he continues to deal with the aftermath of a concussion he suffered during the campaign.
During Tuesday’s Yankees broadcast, YES clubhouse reporter Meredith Marakovits revealed that a conversation with Ross had spurred Rizzo into seeking second opinions on his health.
Zach Zaidman of 670 the Score, during the Cubs’ victory over the Giants, elaborated on that report, revealing that Ross and Rizzo had spoken when the Cubs were in New York for a series against the Mets.
