Ben Zobrist has played six games in the Cubs’ minor-league system this month, trying to get back to the major leagues after being off on personal leave since May 8.

In those six games he’s hit .211/.318/.526 (4-for-19) with two home runs. The process is probably more important than the results.

Monday, the next stop on Ben’s tour was revealed:

Memphis isn’t too far from the Zobrist family home in Nashville. The I-Cubs will play a four-game series in Memphis, though it’s not clear whether Ben will play in all four games. After Iowa’s trip to Memphis, they will have a seven-game homestand in Des Moines from August 19-25.

As has been noted elsewhere, for Zobrist to be eligible for this year’s MLB postseason, he would have to be added back to the 40-man roster by August 31. He could then be activated to the big-league Cubs September 1 when rosters expand.

As always, we await developments.
