Ben Zobrist rejoins the A’s a month after knee surgery

7 Comments

It might be too little too late for the A’s considering their 16-30 record, but Ben Zobrist is back from the disabled list after missing the past four weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery.

Zobrist was off to a modest start before the injury, but he’ll resume being an everyday player for Oakland while likely seeing time at multiple defensive positions.

As a 33-year-old impending free agent he’ll either try to get the A’s turned around after their brutal start to the season or perhaps emerge as an attractive trade target for contenders.

To make room on the roster Oakland sent outfielder Craig Gentry back to Triple-A.
