Andrew Benintendi News
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi continued his hot start to June with a big game at the plate against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the game. He is now slashing .290/.333/.677 with three home runs, 12 RBI and five runs through eight games in June. Benintendi had a strong month of May, hitting .340, but he produced very little power, slugging just .443. If he can keep this recent power increase intact, he's going provide fantasy managers with a strong all-around game the rest of the way.
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi had a strong game at the plate in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins. Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple and two RBI. The home run was his sixth of the year and his second through just four games in June. Benintendi has really settled in since the start of May.

Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi helped lead the team to a 10-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday. Benintendi went 2-for-5 in the game, hitting a grand slam in the fifth inning that put the team ahead for good. He had five total RBI in the game. Benintendi now has five home runs on the year to go along with a .291/.348/.401 slash line. After a slow start to the year, he stepped his game up in May, slashing .340/.377/.443 across the month. They power may come and go, but Benintendi should give fantasy managers a solid boost in batting average going forward.
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.
