Zobrist 'under the weather' for Wednesday's tilt
ST. PETERSBURG -- Ben Zobrist missed Tuesday's game because of soreness in his hand after being hit by a ball Sunday. He was not in the Rays' lineup again Wednesday because of illness.

"He's a little bit under the weather," manager Joe Maddon said. "He had a fever in the morning and is still under the weather a bit. He may be available later tonight, but for right now, he's not feeling too hot."

Maddon also confirmed that while Zobrist's hand is still sore, it did not factor into his decision to keep him out of the lineup.

Zobrist is hitting .223 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs. Though he had been struggling recently, he fared well in an Interleague series sweep of the Marlins, going 7-for-11 with two homers and six RBIs.
