Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a walk, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's win over the Giants.
EDGE Analysis
The 36-year-old was a productive leadoff hitter in this one, and he's now hitting a solid .296 with a .795 OPS. Zobrist had a down year in 2017 with a .232/.318/.375 line but seems rejuvenated in 2018, though the Cubs will likely still limit the veteran's playing time in an effort to maximize his production later in the year.

Zobrist is starting in right field and batting first in Sunday's series finale against the White Sox.
EDGE Analysis
After taking a seat for Saturday's game, Zobrist will slot back into the lineup Sunday. With regular right fielder Jason Heyward (concussion) on the disabled list, Zobrist looks like the top option there for the time being. The veteran enters Sunday's game with a solid .309/.378/.420 slash line.
