Nick in the AM: Ben Zobrist's wife, Julianna Zobrist, files for divorce

The reason for Eureka native Ben Zobrist's absence from the Chicago Cubs has become apparent.

The paperwork was filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court, according to online records.

On Wednesday morning, Cubs Insider was among outlets that reported the filing.

Other sources reported Julianna Zobrist scrubbed her social-media accounts of most references to her husband.

Last year, she authored a book entitled "Pull It Off," in which she attempts to tackle negative thinking and how to counteract it.

The Eureka High School graduate's big-league career began in 2006 with Tampa Bay.
