Ben Zobrist officially heads to the disabled list roughly a week or so late. The injury cited was “left wrist inflammation”, given that the beloved Cub had been hit on the wrist during a game on May 26th against the Dodgers. Zobrist continued to play through this issue, but not without showing signs that he wasn’t 100%. Since getting clocked by a pitch from Alex Wood, Zobrist was hitting .109/.226/.196.

The 36-year old was placed on the the 10-day disabled list last Tuesday and will only have a few days or so left, hoping to return to the lineup either Friday or next Monday.
