Snowing in Chicago, Cubs Postpone Home Opener

Watch: Fight between fans caught on camera at Brewers-Cubs game

The 26-year old right-fielder had a very quiet 2017 season, hitting only 11 homers with 35 RBI's in 108 games.

Meanwhile, the Cubs are 20-8 in their last 28 during game one of a series and 36-15 in their last 51 home games following a road trip of seven or more days.

"It's definitely important to me", Rizzo said of Monday's game against the Pirates at Wrigley Field. It could easily go either way but I'm leading toward the Pirates here.

The Cubs tried pushing back Monday's scheduled start time by an hour, but snow fell steadily for most of the morning.

The Cubs will be without All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday. He has been sidelined by back tightness, but he might be able to play in the rescheduled home opener. "It's just we have to get the field clear - obviously you don't want anyone to slip and fall". Chatwood was sharp in his Cubs debut, limiting the Reds to one run in six strong innings, however he received little run support and was charged with the loss. "You can't play [Monday] and set myself back 10 days, or five or six days".

Rizzo said he's gradually felt better since Friday.

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cubs Convention or opening day", Chicago manager Joe Maddon cracked.

Nine games into the season, Maddon isn't ready to take any chances.

"They had more snow, so I get it", Bossard said. "I'm okay if it's not [Monday], just because we have the off day and then it really gives him a full opportunity to rest it".

Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season, aiming for his first win as a member of the Cubs. Chatwood has limited the Pirates to only two runs in 12 career innings, and he was sharp in his Cubs debut, holding Cincinnati to one run on four hits in six innings. He struck out four and has held Pittsburgh, posting a 1.50 ERA in two career starts versus the Buccos.
