Zobrist Off, Rodriguez On
Wednesday night’s lineup includes Sean Rodriguez at second base and Ben Zobrist has the night off, a move Joe Maddon explained by noting that he felt giving Zobrist a night off might help him out a little bit.
Maddon feels that Zobrist has been expanding his strike zone. He also wants to get Rodriguez back in the lineup. Even though Rodriguez started the season slowly, Maddon still believes in his bat and would like to get him on track.
