Ben Zobrist wasn't in the lineup Saturday and could be out again today due to a nagging neck injury, but it isn't considered serious.
Zobrist said his neck stiffened up the past few days, likely due to overswinging, leading to him getting pinch-hit for in the ninth inning of Friday's 3-2 loss to Baltimore. He felt he needed just one day off and was available as a pinch-hitter, but manager Joe Maddon said they might hold him out today, too.
"I'm fine," Zobrist said. "I just kind of needed a day off anyway, I think."
