2B,RF - FA
Ben Zobrist went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk, and an additional run scored in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh.
Zobrist knocked his first home run of 2019 in the third inning. In a year that's been derailed by personal circumstances, Zobrist is batting .266 in 109 at-bats.
The Cubs activated Ben Zobrist from the restricted list on Saturday.
Zobrist hasn't played since May as he was dealing with an extremely public divorce. He'll be a useful utility option for the Cubs down the stretch but won't have much fantasy value.
Zobrist was granted a leave of absence from the team Wednesday for undisclosed reasons.
It isn't clear when Zobrist will re-join the team. The multi-position wizard, who turns 38 later this month, is batting .241 with 10 RBIs but has just one extra-base hit in 99 plate appearances.
Ben Zobrist went 2-for-2 with a single, a double, two RBI, and a run scored in the Cubs' 6-5 extra innings win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Zobrist sent one to the wall in the top of the 15th, scoring two runs and giving his team the lead. That double was his first extra-base hit of the season. He now has a .239/.329/.254 triple slash on the year. Zobrist doesn't have any value outside of NL-only leagues.
Ben Zobrist will not be in the starting lineup for the Cubs. He will likely be available from the bench if needed.
Zobrist has not been diagnosed with any injuries so he should be back in the lineup as soon as Saturday. For Friday, take him out of your lineups.
