Ben Zobrist Absent On Wednesday rotoballer.com Wed 9/26/18 7:06 PM

Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ben Zobrist will rest Wednesday versus the Pirates. Outfielder Ian Happ will draw the start in right field and bat fifth.

The Cut List (Week 25): Time to Let Go? rotoballer.com Sun 9/16/18 8:00 AM

Welcome to Week 25 of the Cut List. This week I'm taking a look at Adam Jones, Carlos, Gonzalez, Odubel Herrera, and Starlin Castro.   All four players should be cut in most standard shallow formats. We're in the thick of the fantasy playoff season and we need to own players who are actually producing results.

Ben Zobrist Scratched Friday rotoballer.com Fri 9/7/18 12:45 PM

Chicago Cubs infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist (neck) was scratched from the lineup on Friday with a stiff neck. Ian Happ will take his place and play center field and bat ninth against Nationals starter Joe Ross.

Ben Zobrist Drives In A Run Versus Philadelphia Saturday rotoballer.com Sun 9/2/18 1:46 AM

Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist continued to produce for his team Saturday versus the Phillies. Over his past 10 games, Zobrist has collected 14 hits to continue to be a standout in that category. He is batting .310 on the season which has him in the top-5 of the National League. He has 59 runs scored to go with 54 RBI (including one Saturday) which is respectable for a second baseman in fantasy. Zobrist has a place in deeper formats but could be risky in shallower one given the return [...]

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of leagues ANALYSIS: Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ben Zobrist has had a really good year as an experienced veteran.

Since Bryant has returned, Zobrist has mainly played second and has also found opportunities at the top of the lineup. He is slashing .307/.389/.461 this season and has a .367 wOBA. While he only[...]
