Description

Benjamin Thomas Zobrist (/ˈzoʊbrɪst/; born May 26, 1981), nicknamed Zorilla, is an American professional baseball second baseman and outfielder for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays/Rays, his first MLB club and where he spent the majority of his career, and briefly for the Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals. Zobrist has played in three World Series, winning the last two becoming a two-time World Series champion in consecutive seasons of 2015 with the Royals and 2016 with the Cubs. Zobrist was the 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player. He is one of six players in MLB history to have won back-to back World Series championships on different teams, the other five being Jake Peavy, Jack Morris, Bill Skowron, Clem Labine, and Don Gullett.

A versatile defender and a switch-hitter with a high walk rate, he has played roughly half his innings at second base, and has also spent significant time at shortstop and various outfield positions. Thus, he has often been referred to as a "super utility player".
