Andrew Benintendi News
New York Yankees outfielder Andrew Benintendi (hand, wrist) said "it's pretty safe to say the regular season is out" for his return to the team. Benintendi is hoping to be part of the team's postseason roster, but he's not sure yet when he'll resume swinging a bat. The 28-year-old suffered a broken hamate bone and had surgery to fix it earlier this month. Fantasy managers will be without him the rest of the way in 2022, so he should have already been dropped to the waiver wire in single-year leagues. In 33 games with the Yankees after being acquired from the Kansas City Royals, the first-time All-Star hit .254/.331/.404 with two home runs, 12 RBI, 14 runs scored and four stolen bases.
New York Yankees outfielder Andrew Benintendi (wrist) is tentatively scheduled to have surgery on his hand on Tuesday, according to skipper Aaron Boone. The surgery will fix the hook of the hamate bone in his right wrist and is expected to keep him sidelined for the rest of the 2022 regular season. It remains to be seen if Benintendi will be able to return if the Yanks make a long postseason run. The 28-year-old played in 33 games for New York after being acquired from the Kansas City Royals, and he had gone 29-for-114 (.254) with two home runs, 12 RBI, 14 runs scored and four stolen bases in 33 games in pinstripes. With Benintendi out for the foreseeable future, Aaron Hicks, Estevan Florial, Tim Locastro and Marwin Gonzalez will battle for playing time in left field in the Bronx.
New York Yankees outfielder Andrew Benintendi (wrist) is likely going to be sidelined throughout the rest of the regular season. This is the worst case scenario for the young outfielder who suffered a hand injury on Friday. The results came back and Benintendi has broke the hook of the hamate bone in his right hand. He'll require surgery for this injury, which should knock him out for the rest of the regular season. His status for the postseason is unknown, but this is bad news for a Yankees offense that is already struggling. Aaron Hicks and Oswaldo Cabrera are expected to see increased playing time, but have nowhere near the same fantasy value as Benintendi.
2020 was not the year anyone expected for Boston Red Sox outfielderAndrew Benintendi. After slashing .266/.343/.431 in 138 games in 2019, the 26-year-old only played in 14 games due to a rib-cage strain. While he has a solid walk rate (21.2%), his strikeout rate (32.7% in 2020) has increased over the past three seasons. Benintendi is a free agent after 2022, but he is currently on the Red Sox's radar to trade. It is unknown how that would affect his play, but the injury will be something to monitor this spring. As of now, he has a place with the Red Sox, but his fantasy stock is down after he slashed just .103/.314/.128 in his 14 games last season. At a current ADP of 226 and just outside the top-50 fantasy outfielders, fantasy managers should consider buying low when it comes to Benintendi, especially if he remains in Boston.
