Athletics' Ben Zobrist gets two hits in first game back
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Athletics second baseman Ben Zobrist returned to the lineup for the first time in more than a month and didn't look rusty.
Zobrist played for the first time since April 24, when he went to the disabled list with a knee injury.
Zobrist went 2 for 4 in the A's shutout loss to Detroit on Tuesday. He hit his sixth double of the year, one of only two extra base hits in the game for either team.
A's 2B Ben Zobrist returns to starting lineup on Tuesday

|(5/26/15) Athletics' second baseman Ben Zobrist has returned to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers. Zobrist, who hasn't played a game since April 24 with a knee injury, is batting third and playing second base for manager Bob Melvin.
Zobrist was activated off of the disabled list on Monday but did not appear in the win over Detroit. But he'll back in there on Tuesday, pushing Eric Sogard back to the bench.
Athletics activate Ben Zobrist, option Craig Gentry to Triple-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) The Athletics activated second baseman Ben Zobrist from the 15-day disabled list on Monday and optioned outfielder Craig Gentry to Triple-A Nashville.
Zobrist has been sidelined since April 24 while recovering from a knee injury, and despite his activation, he will be available off the bench against the Tigers on Monday before starting Tuesday's game, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He made seven starts in the outfield and five at second base before his injury. Zobrist has hit .240/.304/.400 with one home run and eight RBI in 50 at-bats.
Gentry saw just one appearance in his most recent stint with the team. He is 3 for 38 with the A's this season.
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.
A's INF/OF Ben Zobrist (knee) to play left field in rehab Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(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.
|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.
