Ben Zobrist Hopes To Return Next Friday

Ben Zobrist

Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist is currently on the DL with a dislocated left thumb. Fret not, because Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports that “he’ll likely do some rehab games early next week” and “plans to return by next Friday against the Boston Red Sox.” In fact, he said he’d be “surprised” if he’s not back in the lineup by then.

Zobrist has appeared in 40 games so far this season and is hitting .262 with three home runs.
