Andrew Benintendi News
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi (knee) was removed in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Indians. He fouled a ball off his right knee in the bottom of the eighth inning. He finished his at-bat and drew a walk, but was replaced on the base paths by Hanser Alberto. Benintendi could have just been removed as a precaution. We should know more about the severity of the injury soon. The 27-year-old hit his 17th home run of the year in the first inning of Tuesday's game. He's slashing .275/.318/.442 over 129 games on the year.
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi helped lead the team to a 7-2 victory in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians. He went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the game. The 27-year-old has been on a roll in September. Over 20 games this month, he's slashing .377/.412/.623 with four home runs and 23 RBI. He has 16 home runs and a .276/.320/.441 slash line over the season. He's having his best year since 2018, when he slashed .290/.366/.465 while tallying 16 home runs, 21 stolen bases and 103 runs. His power has been inconsistent this year and he's just 8-for-16 in stolen bases, but he's been a steady source of batting average help throughout the season and that should continue through the final weeks.
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi had a phenomenal day at the plate in the team's 12-10 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday. He went 5-for-5 with five singles, four RBI and a run scored. The 27-year-old lefty has been scorching hot at the plate so far this month. Over 14 games in September, he is slashing .404/.435/.684 with three home runs, five doubles and 19 RBI. He's had an extremely uneven first year with the Royals, but he's mostly been able to produce a solid batting average.

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.
