Yankees 1B Anthony Rizzo to miss 4-6 weeks with fractured arm

The New York Yankees will be without their starting first baseman for at least the next month.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Anthony Rizzo has a fracture to the radial neck of his right arm and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Rizzo suffered the injury in a collision at first base during Sunday’s series finale against the Boston Red Sox.

There is no word on what the corresponding move will be when Anthony Rizzo is placed on the injured list Tuesday, but the expectation is that DJ LeMahieu will move to 1B and Oswaldo Cabrera will play 3B for the time being.

Through 70 games, Rizzo has hit .223 with eight home runs, 28 RBI, and a .630 OPS. Last week, the Yankees sat Rizzo for two straight games as he worked on his swing.
