Cubs Could Target These 5 Veteran Infielders to Replace Ben Zobrist

The 2019 season was likely Ben Zobrist‘s last, at least with the Cubs. The veteran hasn’t announced anything retirement related, but his relief pitching appearance in the Cubs final game is a pretty big hint he’s hanging it up prior to his age-39 season. Zo’s departure and a likely non-tender of Addison Russell leaves a vacancy at second base and also on the leadership committee. As such, Chicago could use a veteran infielder to either bridge the gap until promising rookie Nico Hoerner is able to take over full time or just provide steady depth.
