Originally written August 20, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Nothing is worse than a migraine. They always seem to hit at the most inopportune times, serving as some form of kryptonite to our everyday life. Simple tasks and responsibilities fall by the wayside, as we essentially become prisoners in our own heads. Don't believe me? Ask Anthony Rizzo, of the Chicago Cubs. Rizzo, was forced to miss last night's game marking his first omission from a Cubs box score in 2013. The first baseman reported to the ballpark on Monday with a major migraine, after reportedly feeling sick the night before. “He was pretty sick (Sunday) night,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said before the game. “Pretty weak, migraine headache and the whole thing. Hopefully it passes today and he’s ready to go for (Tuesday) for a night game.”  In his place, utility man extraordinaire Cody Ransom filled in at first base during Chicago's 11-1 trampling of the Washington Nationals. With Rizzo expected back as soon as Tuesday night's game, the Cubs are likely to return him to usually spot on defense and third place in the batting order. In his first full season in Cub's blue, Rizzo has posted a .230/.323/.425 batting line in 461 at-bats to accompany his 18 home runs and 65 RBI's.
