BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 39% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ben Zobrist has had a really good year as an experienced veteran. He has gotten more playing time than usual, as he had filled in well for Kris Bryant while he recovered from his injury. Since Bryant has returned, Zobrist has mainly played second and has also found opportunities at the top of the lineup. He is slashing .308/.392/.462 this season and has a .369 wOBA. While he only has eight home runs this season, Zobrist has knocked in 46 runs and scored 54 as well.

Known for his patience, Zobrist walks (12.3%) nearly as much as he strikes out (12.6%). Zobrist has a .330 batting average since the beginning of July as well, knocking in 14 runs while scoring 16 runs. While he was only 2-for-13 this week, both of those hits were doubles, and one of his doubles was a two-RBI double.

He is definitely a player to hold, particularly considering that the Cubs are healthy and Zobrist has multi-positional eligibility. Zobrist can start in deeper leagues and is a good option for bench depth in more shallow leagues.
