Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist is still battling a left wrist injury that he suffered during a swing back in late May against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since his injury occurred, he has a batting average of only .102.

Zobrist is currently on the 10-day disabled list and had an MRI on Wednesday that showed no structural damage which is certainly good news.

He would like to test his left wrist on Wednesday and possibly get activated from the disabled list on Friday if there are no setbacks according to multiple reports. Friday is the first day that he would be eligible to be activated for the Cubs.

The Cubs have missed his veteran bat in the lineup this week. However, the Cubs have super-utility player Ian Happ that can play second base and the outfield position to fill in the missing time while Zobrist is out.

In 2017, Zobrist is batting a dismal .223 with seven homers, 21 RBI, and .321 on-base percentage. For his career, he has batted .264 with 152 homers, 664 RBI, and .357 on-base percentage.
