MLB is reviewing Anthony Rizzo home plate collision.

Anthony Rizzo pulled off a dirty, dirty play Monday as his Chicago Cubs visited the Pittsburgh Pirates, sliding right into the back of Elias Diaz’s leg while barely even attempting to touch home plate.

Shortstop Sean Rodriguez fielded the grounder and threw for the force at home. As Diaz attempted to pull off a double play with the throw to first, Rizzo went feet first into his leg, forcing an errant throw.

It was just a terribly dirty play by Rizzo (not the first time this has happened, by the way), and an awful call by the ump, that had Twitter in an uproar.
