BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 38% 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 .307/.389/.461 this season and has a .367 wOBA. While he only has nine home runs this season, Zobrist has knocked in 48 runs and scored 57 as well.

Known for his patience, Zobrist walks (12%) nearly as much as he strikes out (12.5%). Zobrist has a .323 batting average since the beginning of July as well, knocking in 16 runs while scoring 19 runs. For the week, Zobrist had hits in five of six games, including two multi-hit games, clubbing a double and a home run.

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.
