Ben Zobrist Out with Back Tightness

Chicago Cubs

On the day Anthony Rizzo returned from the disabled list after missing 10 days with back tightness, Ben Zobrist goes down with the same issue.

Zobrist, whose been extremely, youthfully hot to start the season, was a late scratch tonight with back tightness. You may remember that Zobrist, who turns 37 next month, missed a big chunk at the start of Spring Training with a back issue. Hopefully this will just be a night off in part due to the cold, but obviously the Cubs just had two days off, so it’s not as if he hasn’t had some time to rest up if there was a connection to Saturday’s horrible conditions.

We’ll update when we know more.
