Epstein on Rizzo’s weight loss: ‘You’re the only guy who can get in shape and still have handlebars’

4 years agoStaff Report

Anthony Rizzo has hit the gym big time since baseball came to a halt on March 12. Since then, he’s lost upwards of 25 pounds.


When asked about the first baseman’s progress on Cubs 360 Daily, presented by Miller Lite, Theo Epstein jokingly said, “You’re the only guy in America who can lose 25 pounds, get in shape and still have handlebars and a gut. What’s with that?”

Epstein went on to praise Rizzo for his progress off the diamond and putting forth the work to get in shape during these difficult times.

Catch Cubs 360 Daily, presented by Miller Lite weeknights at 7:30 p.m. on Marquee Sports Network.
