Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Agrees to deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zobrist agreed to a four-year, $56 million contract with the Cubs on Tuesday, pending a physical, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The familiarity with skipper Joe Maddon and upward trajectory of the franchise led Zobrist to choose Chicago and turn down more lucrative offers from other clubs. With the Cubs flipping Starlin Castro to the Yankees shortly after news of this deal broke, it seems Zobrist will likely open the year at second base, but his versatility in the field will allow the Cubs some flexibility.

Royals' Ben Zobrist swats 13th home run in losing effort Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals second baseman Ben Zobrist went 1 for 4 with his 13th homer in Saturday's 9-5 loss to the Indians.

The round-tripper was Zobrist's third of the month, to go along with seven RBI. The veteran outfielder enjoyed a .343 August after joining the Royals at the trade deadline, and although he has cooled off to the tune of .264 in September, he has managed six multi-hit outings during the month.

Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup Friday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals second baseman Ben Zobrist is not in the lineup Friday against the Tigers.

Zobrist hasn't received an off day since Sept. 5, having been in the lineup 11 straight games, so he'll get some rest Friday. Omar Infante will get the start at the keystone and bat seventh in his stead.

Yost: Ben Zobrist to soon start at 2B over Omar Infante for Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It appears all but certain that light-hitting Omar Infante will be the odd man out of the Royals lineup when Alex Gordon returns from injury.

As expected, Ned Yost has stated that Ben Zobrist will play mostly second base when Gordon is ready, per the Kansas City Star.

Infante has not found his stride at the plate all season. The result is a .217 average, which if maintained would be the lowest of his career.

The versatile Zobrist, who can play all over the field, will likely continue to give others occasional days off as the Royals cruise to the division title.
