Ben Zobrist 2B/SS.. TB 1 Day

Zobrist went 2-for-3 with two walks and RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Zobrist's power and stolen base totals have predictably tailed off in his age-33 season, but he's retained some value in the fantasy game for his versatility and on-base skills. He's been especially excellent for the Rays in the second half, slashing .315/.392/.472 since the All-Star break.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Giants "remain interested" in trading for Ben Zobrist.

The Giants don't exactly have a loaded farm system and gave up two good young pitchers to acquire Jake Peavy last week, but it seems they're ready to go all-in (so to speak) as they try to keep pace with the Dodgers in the National League West. Zobrist, 33, has hit .268/.358/.409 in 403 plate appearances this season for Tampa Bay. He could play all around the field for San Francisco.

Ben Zobrist went 4-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Friday against the Red Sox.

Only one of Zobrist's four hits left the infield, but the one that did tied the game in the seventh inning. The Rays would eventually take the lead in the frame, which they wouldn't relinquish. Zobrist, like David Price, has seen his name surface in trade rumors over the past few weeks, but a deal appears unlikely now that the Rays have turned things around in a hurry.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners' trade talks with the Rays have revolved more around Ben Zobrist than David Price.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported earlier Thursday that the two clubs were discussing a deal involving both players, but Heyman hears that Zobrist "has been the main focus of the talks, with those discussions going on for weeks." Heyman doesn't dismiss the possibility of the M's going after Price (they were linked to him over the offseason), but it sounds like he might be on the back burner for now. According to Heyman, Nick Franklin's name has been involved in the Zobrist discussions.
