Athletics OF Ben Zobrist excels in rehab, could be back Monday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Athletics left fielder Ben Zobrist provided some encouragement Friday with his rehab performance for Triple-A Nashville. He singled twice, scored twice and drove in two in three at-bats.
Zobrist could be activated by Oakland on Monday, per the Bay Area News Group. A knee injury has had him sidelined for a month.

|(5/22/15) Athletics utility man Ben Zobrist is continuing his rehab assignment Friday and will play a full nine innings in left field for Triple-A Nashville. Zobrist will then be the designated hitter on Saturday and play second base on Sunday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The team has not revealed any next steps past Sunday, though previous reports indicated that Zobrist, who is coming back from a knee injury, was expected to be activated on Monday, which still remains possible.

Athletics' Ben Zobrist (knee) to see time at 2B in rehab game Tuesday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) Ben Zobrist (knee) is scheduled to play five innings at second base Tuesday for the Athletics' Class-A Stockton Ports, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.|
Zobrist, who's currently on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury, ran the bases Sunday to test his knee.
Zobrist had played in 14 games for the A's this season before hitting the DL, going 12 for 50 (.240 avg.) with one homer, five doubles and eight RBI.
Athletics' Ben Zobrist runs the bases on Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Athletics second baseman Ben Zobrist was able to run the bases on Sunday and test his injured knee, manager Bob Melvin said per CSN California.
Zobrist, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a knee injury, is scheduled to play five innings for Triple-A Stockton on Tuesday as a part of his rehab assignment. The veteran is hitting .240 with eight RBI in 50 at-bats this season.
|2014 summary: Even as Ben Zobrist entered into his age-33 season, he showed no signs of slowing down as an on-base threat. With a .354 on-base percentage, Zobrist exceeded a .345 mark for the sixth season in a row, and that translated into his sixth straight year with more than 75 runs scored. With 83 runs, Zobrist actually increased his production in that category, but his RBI total fell from 71 to 52. Zobrist's .225 batting average with runners in scoring position played a role in that, but so did the overall decline in the Rays' offense. Two areas in which Zobrist appears to be steeped in decline are extra-base power (10 home runs, 34 doubles) and stolen bases (10 steals in 15 attempts).|
Playing time status: Zobrist had his first visit to the disabled list in six seasons, but a dislocated thumb kept him out for only two weeks. He remains a durable player and a reliable source of plate appearances, and his versatility should keep him in the Athletics' lineup on a daily basis in his first year in Oakland.
2015 outlook: Though Zobrist still offers solid run production for a middle infielder, his pedestrian home run and stolen base totals kept him outside the top 10 among second basemen and shortstops in Rotisserie value. He could resurrect his RBI total with better hitting with runners in scoring position, but his power and speed could continue to wane. At minimum, Zobrist should be in the top 10 at both middle infield positions in points leagues, and his eligibility at three positions (he is also outfield-eligible) helps to make him a solid middle round option in all standard mixed league formats.
