    Description: Infielder Ben Zobrist and shortstop Yunel Escobar have been traded to Oakland.
    Insight: The Rays will receive Daniel Robertson, John Jaso, and Boog Powell in return. Zobrist and Escobar should fit in nicely with Oakland.
     
    9/23/2014 10:40:00 PM
    Description: Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
    Insight: Zobrist hit a two-RBI double in the eighth inning as Tampa Bay took its first lead of the night, 2-1. Zobrist came around to score on David DeJesus' single as the Rays added three more runs in the frame. The second baseman is hitting .273 with 10 home runs and 50 RBI this season.

    9/21/2014 9:42:00 AM
    Description: Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist could be in for a rough day today (if he is in the lineup) against White Sox starter John Danks.

    Cold9/12/2014 1:18:00 PM

    9/6/2014 10:35:00 AM
    Description: Tampa Bay second baseman Ben Zobrist is 6-for-10 with three extra-base hits against Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman.
    Insight: Since the All-Star break Zobrist is batting a more respectable .284, but he's still not playing up to fantasy owner expectations. Perhaps this favorable matchup will help.

    Insight: Despite the poor average in the last two weeks, Zobrist is still batting .343 in his last 26 games.
     
    8/19/2014 10:52:00 AM
