At the time, the Cubs did not say why Zobrist was out. However, the team said his leave is indefinite at this time.

They have no potential timeframe on his return.

“I texted with him the other day and reminded him how much I care about him, how much we miss him,” manager Joe Maddon said.

He is in the final year of a four-year deal he signed with the team. His former wife is a Christian pop singer. They had three children together.

Zobrist was delayed to reporting to spring training in February. The team said it was “personal reasons,” but they did not give any other information besides that.

This season before stepping away from the team, the 37-year-old Eureka, Illinois name has a .241 batting average with 10 RBIs in 26 games. He also has 20 hits and 12 runs.

The 34-year-old Orlando, Florida singer has previously released two plays, The Tree in 2009 and Say It Now in 2012. She also released her first studio album in 2016 called Shatterproof.

Two of her singles from the album called “The Dawn” and “Alive” were among Billboard magazine hit songs.

She previously sung the national anthem at Cubs and Kansas City Royals games. Zobrist played for both teams. She also sung “God Bless America” before Game 4 of the 2016 World Series.

They had been married since 2005 before this divorce.
