Zobrist (back) indicated after Friday's win over the Rockies he'll go on the disabled list, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic Chicago reports. Zobrist hasn't appeared in a game since last Saturday, so he would already be about halfway through the minimum 10 days on the DL. The 36-year-old indicated it's still a minor issue, but the team is opting to exercise additional caution due to recent weather conditions.
Zobrist (back) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against St. Louis. Manage Joe Maddon has elected to give Zobrist another day out of the starting lineup while the utility man continues to recover from a bout of back tightness. It's unclear whether Zobrist will be available off the bench, and he should be considered day-to-day heading into Saturday's affair.
Zobrist (back) is not in the lineup against the Cardinals on Thursday. Zobrist was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup due to back tightness and will remain out of the starting nine following a day of rest due to Wednesday's postponement. The 36-year-old may be available off the bench, but manager Joe Maddon has not discussed his status since Tuesday, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.
Zobrist was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back tightness, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. With Zobrist out, Ian Happ will hit leadoff and start in center field while Jason Heyward moves to right. The Cubs didn't indicate that Zobrist is dealing with a serious injury, so consider him day-to-day for now.
Zobrist went 3-for-3 with two walks, a triple, three runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 14-10 win over the Braves. The performance boosted his slash line through 13 games to .326/.408/.465. Zobrist is coming off his worst season at the plate since 2010, but he's quickly putting it behind him, and his defensive versatility remains an asset -- he's already played four different positions this year (first base, second base and both outfield corners).
