Zo has been out since May dealing with some personal things and he can start a minor league rehab assignment next weekend and be back with the team within a month. In order for Zo to be eligible for the postseason, he’ll need to be back on the lineup before August 31st.
Before his departure, Zobrist played in 26 games with 99 plate appearances, resulting in 12 runs, 20 hits, 10 RBIs, 14 walks, and 12 strikeouts. Zobrist had an OBP (on-base percentage) of .343 with a Slugging Percentage of .253 for a OPS of .596.
Zo played outfield (mostly right) and 2nd base, with 0 errors throughout. He’ll be able to swoop in and out for guys until he’s comfortable enough back on the field to find his place. There’s no telling how he’ll be until we see his return, whenever that may be.
Zo still holds a very high place within the Cubs locker room as the oldest player on the Cubs roster. He’s a talented veteran so don’t doubt him just yet. See where he is and then it’ll be known what the Cubs next moves can be.
