Benintendi is not in the lineup Thursday against the Athletics, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

Benintendi has been mired in a massive slump, going 0-for-26 in his past seven games, so the Red Sox will get him a night off to get him back on track. Chris Young will take over in left field for the evening.
