No reason was given in the documents, but the petition for a dissolution of marriage was filed Monday, the records show.
Ben Zobrist was granted a “leave of absence due to personal reasons” last week and was placed on the Cubs’ restricted list. He also missed the start of the team’s spring training in February for an “excused absence,” though it remains unclear if either is connected to the divorce proceedings.
Julianna Zobrist hired Berger Schatz attorney Karen Krehbiel to represent her in the matter. The Chicago Tribune reports Krehbiel also represented Chicago billionaire Kenneth Griffin in his divorce from Anne Dias Griffin in 2014.
The couple has been marired for 14 years and have three children together.
