Ben Zobrist not in Cubs' Game 5 lineup on Thursday

Chicago Cubs second baseman/left fielder Ben Zobrist is absent from the club's starting lineup for Game 5 of the NLDS.

What It Means:

With the Cubs facing Gio Gonzalez and the Washington Nationals on Thursday, Zobrist will make way for Albert Almora in the outfield as Jon Jay plays left.

Zobrist is 3-for-15 with 2 doubles and 3 strikeouts so far in the series. He hasn't been the strongest hitter against lefties, but could be valuable off the bench in tonight's decisive Game 5.
