Zobrist will start in right field and bat second Wednesday against the Tigers.
EDGE Analysis
It's the fifth consecutive start for Zobrist, whose ability to play multiple infield and outfield spots and bat from either side of the plate has locked him into a quasi-everyday role despite having no permanent home at any position. Zobrist has certainly proven worthy of sticking in the lineup on a regular basis, as he has slashed .284/.385/.420 with five long balls, 33 runs and 25 RBI since returning from the disabled list in late April.

Zobrist went 2-for-2 with two walks and three RBI in Saturday win over Minnesota.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist is no longer an everyday starter for the Cubs -- 48 starts in 65 games -- but his versatility and success at the plate still earns him fairly regular at bats. The 37-year-old has a .297/.394/.439 slash line with 34 walks and 32 strikeouts for the season.

Zobrist is starting in left field and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Twins.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist blasted his sixth home run of the season in Friday's win and he'll slot back in there Saturday with Kyle Schwarber on the bench against lefty starter Adalberto Mejia. With Kris Bryant (shoulder) expected to remain out through early next week, Zobrist's versatility will continue to help the Cubs mix and match their lineups in the short term.

Zobrist is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist will take a seat Thursday as the Dodgers send left-hander Clayton Kershaw to the mound. Zobrist went 0-for-4 Wednesday, but before that was 9-for-21 over his last six games.

Zobrist is starting at second base and batting leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.
EDGE Analysis
With Kris Bryant (shoulder) landing on the disabled list, the Cubs could use Javy Baez more at third base, which is what they're doing on Tuesday. As a result, Zobrist could see a little more time at second base in the short term. The veteran utility player is slashing a healthy .289/.384/.426 this season.

Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Reds.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist pulled a flyball over the right field wall in the sixth inning off Anthony DeSclafani for his fifth home run of the season. While his power has been lacking -- this was his first homer since May 31 -- he has remained productive by getting on base at a .384 clip. As a result, he is a steady producer suitable for deeper leagues.

Zobrist went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Reds.
EDGE Analysis
The Cubs mustered just four hits and three runs as a team, but Zobrist still had a productive evening. The veteran has been having a nice bounceback season, as he's now slashing a solid .286/.382/.413 across 59 games.

Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist was effective in the leadoff role in this one, and the veteran is now slashing a healthy .286/.379/.417. Zobrist will continue to rotate in at second base and in the outfield, but the Cubs will likely continue to find the 37-year-old plenty of regular days off to keep him fresh.

Zobrist is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist will take the afternoon off after driving in a combined three runs over the first two games of the series. Javier Baez will man second base for the series finale.

Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a walk and two RBI in Friday's 3-1 win over the Pirates.
EDGE Analysis
Zobrist drove in a run on a single to center in the first inning, tying the game at one. Through 47 games this season, he's batting .293 with four homers and a .821 OPS. Zobrist figures to get plenty of opportunities at second base moving forward, especially if he continues to produce at the dish.
