Ben Zobrist is working in minor leagues in what means his potential return to the majors. However, a few months ago it is said that the versatile player of the Chicago Cubs would not step on a pitch in the remainder of the year 2019.

Still with some rehabilitation games in the minors, Zobrist revealed one of the main reasons why he moved away from baseball before the start of the campaign in an interview with Carrie Muskat of MLB.com.

"I needed to be in Nashville to keep my family together."

For his part Jesse Rogers of ESPN, also reported that in mid-July Zobrist left the field and explained that he himself felt that he could still provide something to the Cubs if his return happened.

In the same way he also revealed in his notes that the veteran received great support from all his teammates and that the decision to leave was easy, since he could not be focused on baseball.
