Ben Zobrist is Beginning His Return Process in South Bend!

Chicago Cubs

Great news on the Ben Zobrist front, as he’s going to be kicking off the return process today.

Ultimately, it’s going to be a mini-Spring Training for Zobrist, who may not even begin playing in games on an everyday basis for a little while yet. It kinda depends on what shape he’s in, both in a physical sense (my guess is he kept it up well) and in a baseball sense (impossible to know until he starts facing live pitching).

After some time, the Cubs can see where things stand with Zobrist to have a better sense of just how much he can contribute to the big league team. He is 38, had a rough start to the season, and has been away from baseball action for three months. I’m very happy to see him getting back after it, but I don’t think anyone can say they know for sure how this will go.
