|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist had his fourth career multi-homer game during a 12-4 loss Sunday at Cincinnati.

Zobrist has hit safely in nine of his last 11 games. He's batting .317 (13 for 41) with one double, three home runs and six RBI in that span.

(4/7/14) Rays outfielder Ben Zobrist launched his first home run of the season on Monday against the Royals in Kansas City.

|Ben Zobrist records first multi-hit game |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/14) Rays outfielder Ben Zobrist recorded his first multi-hit game of the season Thursday, in a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays. Zobrist went 2 for 4 with a pair of singles in the game, scoring twice and picking up one RBI.
He entered the game just 1 for 10 in his first three games of the season, so it was nice to see Zobrist get the bat going. He is hitting .214/.353/.214 in 14 at-bats.
|Ben Zobrist hitless, fans twice in return to lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist returned from a neck ailment Wednesday against Toronto and got a few much-needed at-bats. He was apparently rusty, striking out twice and walking once as the starting designated hitter.
The neck problem lingered longer than anticipated after he was first scratched on Saturday. Zobrist was supposed to play Monday, but continued to be pushed back.
Start and sit hitters for Week 4
A few players potentially returning from injury along with a top prospect getting the call might make your lineup setting a challenge in Week 4. Our Scott White is here to help.

|For the first time in three seasons, Ben Zobrist failed to hit 20 home runs (he hit 12). While his average (.275) was the highest since 2009, Zobrist saw decreases in doubles, triples, steals, walks and OPS, despite enjoying a career-high 612 at-bats. While his OBP was down from 2012, Zobrist still got on base at exactly his career rate (.354). And his doubles were only three fewer than his 2012 total. Plus, Zobrist will carry triple eligibility into 2014, at outfield, shortstop, and second base -- giving a boost to his draft status. Zobrist has value in Points formats because of his doubles and walks, and can be taken in the early middle rounds. His value drops a bit in Roto leagues, though, where those categories only tangentially help his counting stats.
