Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Could rest more this year
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zobrist could be given more days off during spring training and the upcoming season, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Zobrist played in 147 games for the Cubs last season, but he turns 36 in May, so manager Joe Maddon said he'll look to find him more rest days in an effort to keep the veteran fresh for another October run. Helping matters is the emergence of Javier Baez, who gives Chicago another very good option at second base. Expect Baez and Zobrist to platoon there this season, but Baez -- who started at second in all 17 postseason games last fall -- could end up taking the job full-time. That would push Zobrist into more of a super-utility role.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Had lowest swing percentage in MLB last year
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zobrist, who swung at just 35.5 percent of the pitches he saw in 2016, had the lowest swing percentage in the majors, MLB Director of Baseball Research and Development Daren Willman reports.

Zobrist was well below the league average of 46.6 percent. Not surprisingly, Zobrist turned this patient eye into an excellent 15.2 percent walk rate and 1.17 BB/K rate, as well as a .386 on-base percentage. These look like leadoff hitter numbers, and with Dexter Fowler no longer around, Zobrist stands a good chance of grabbing that role in 2017.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Could bat leadoff this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zobrist is a top candidate to lead off for the Cubs this year, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

The Cubs are looking to replace Dexter Fowler's production atop the lineup, and Zobrist is a logical choice for the spot. He's led off before, and he was second on the team last year (behind Fowler) with a .386 on-base percentage. Kyle Schwarber is also in consideration to bat first, and it's possible that manager Joe Maddon simply mixes and matches who leads off. It will be interesting to see what Chicago's lineups look like in spring training.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Supplies three RBI in victory over Reds
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zobrist went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, and three runs in Friday's 7-3 victory over the Reds.

The veteran second baseman launched a 377-foot solo shot to right to open the scoring in the fifth and then brought home Anthony Rizzo in the eighth with a 380-foot blast to right. Zobrist has driven in eight runs over his last seven games, and his 75 RBI represent his highest total in that category since he knocked in 91 with the Rays in 2011.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zobrist is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates.

Zobrist will rest for the second time in four games with manager Joe Maddon looking to get his regulars plenty of rest in advance of the postseason. Munenori Kawasaki will get the start at second base in Zobrist's place.
