Anthony Rizzo, the New York Yankees explosive and dependable first baseman, witnessed a slump last season for some uncanny reasons. He initially emerged as the player of the month for May as he led the team in hitting metrics. In the absence of Aaron Judge, Rizzo did a commendable job to keep the team afloat.

However, things started spiraling down when Anthony Rizzo ran into Fernando Tatis Jr and suffered from post-concussion syndrome. After he was shut down for the season, questions over his availability for the 2024 season began to rise.

Explosive first baseman Anthony Rizzo kicked off his 2023 season campaign with the New York Yankees on a high. But fell off the bandwagon after an unfortunate collision with Fernando Tatis Jr of the Padres. The impact of the collision took a toll on Rizzo’s mental fitness as he faced post-concussion syndrome. Apparently, Rizzo developed the symptoms two months after the collisions happened, which left the Yankee medical team confused. Eventually, in the aftermath of memory loss episodes, the Yanks decided to shut down the baseman for the rest of the season. Subsequently, Rizzo was placed on meds and had regular checkups with the doctor. That being said, ahead of the 2024 MLB season, the baseman shared the latest health update, which will come as a relief to the fans.

On the first day of spring, Anthony Rizzo talked to the reporters and confirmed that he is way past concussion-related issues. The first baseman added that he witnessed a very long but normal off-season. “Felt very long but excited to be back in camp,” Rizzo said. Furthermore, he revealed how his positive perspective helped him recover quickly from the concussion syndrome. “It could have been worse. Thankfully, It’s all better now,” he added. Besides, earlier, Yankees manager Aaron Boone also stated that he expects the veteran to have a normal season in 2024. Having said that, as Rizzo prepares for the challenges that lie ahead, he remains grateful for the opportunity to wear the Yankee uniform. He is fully committed to giving his all on the field and contributing to the team’s pursuit of glory in the upcoming season.

Meanwhile, Aaron Judge, who was forced to miss eight weeks due to a gruesome toe injury, returned fully fit this spring. However, the Yankees captain confessed that his toe would need constant maintenance for the rest of his career. Though Judge averted an off-season surgery, he insists on moving forward with caution.

Aaron Judge tore the ligament of his right toe last season, which led to a prolonged eight weeks of injury layoff. During the same period, the Yankees fell off the winning bandwagon. And within no time, the club’s postseason hopes were crushed to the ground. Hopefully, the captain stays in the pink of his health this year to ensure success for the Bombers.
