ANAHEIM -- Ben Zobrist will receive a cortisone shot in his sore left knee Monday evening and could miss the A's four-game series in Anaheim this week.
The veteran infielder/outfielder underwent an MRI exam on the knee Monday morning and was relieved to learn there's no ligament damage. The exam did, however, show existing cartilage damage that's accumulated over the years, which Zobrist attributes to his sliding technique.
