Latest Update Ben Zobrist hits seventh home run Sat Jul, 19, 07:46 AM
Is versatile enough to start at several different positions. Has good baseball instincts and is a hard worker. Boasts good plate discipline and nice pop in his bat from both sides of the plate. Runs well, too.
Flaws: : Can be a bit of an all-or-nothing batter at times and could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio. His versatility can at times hinder his defensive ability, since he doesn't play every day at any one spot.
Zobrist is now slashing .360/.450/.500 with five extra-base hits (1 HR) and eight RBI through 50 at-bats in July, which would be his best month to date if he can finish on a high-note. Although his production is not what fantasy owners expected up to this point, totaling only seven home runs and 26 RBI, his multiple position eligibility makes him a must-own fantasy option regardless of what he has done.

Zobrist was just 3-for-15 (.200) over his last four games but managed another multi-hit performance here, his fourth over his last seven. He is currently batting just .253 on the season and is, again, not hitting for the power that made him such a valuable asset a few years ago. While his multi-position eligibility makes him seem more attractive, he is most valuable in the infield where his contribution to the counting stats is only slightly above-average. He's certainly helpful, but he's not the asset he once was.Analyst: Howard Bender
Zobrist snapped a two-game slump with first multi-hit game since June 15th. While this month has not been great to Big Z as he his hitting just .236 (21-for-24) in June he does have nine extra-base hits including two home runs and his first two triples of the season.Analyst: Michael Pichan
