Chicago Cubs player Ben Zobrist filed a complaint for legal separation from his wife, Julianna, this week in Williamson County, Tennessee.

The separation comes just days after Zobrist, a three-time all-star and 2016 World Series MVP, announced he was taking an extended leave of absence from the team.

The couple has have owned a home in Williamson County, outside of Nashville, for 12 years. They’ve been married since 2005.

The filing says Zobrist, 37, hopes the parties will enter into a marital dissolution agreement and permanent parenting plan, or for a judge to enter an order of legal separation and have the two live separately, “unless they can reconcile.”
