Benintendi (ribs) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday and will not return this season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. The Red Sox did not want to force Benintendi back from the injury with the Red Sox playing out the string. Manager Ron Roenicke said he hopes Benintendi forgets how he played during the season and remembers what he did during the two spring training periods, but those who rostered him in fantasy probably won't forget about his .103 batting average with zero home runs and one steal in 39 at-bats.
Benintendi (ribs) may not return to action before the end of the season, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom indicated Monday that the Red Sox were "still optimistic" that the outfielder would be able to return, but the fact that it's been framed in those terms suggests it's far from guaranteed. Benintendi was rather unproductive prior to suffering his strained rib cage, hitting .103/.314/.128 in 14 games.
Benintendi (ribs) isn't close to resuming baseball activities, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Benintendi was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained rib cage Aug. 12, and the injury was expected to keep him sidelined longer than 10 days. Manager Ron Roenicke provided another discouraging update Tuesday, and it's unclear when the 26-year-old will be able to return to action. Alex Verdugo, Jackie Bradley and Kevin Pillar should continue to see increased work as a result.
Benintendi (ribs) is expected to spend more than the 10-day minimum on the injured list, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. The 26-year-old landed on the IL earlier in the day with a strained right rib cage, and the severity of the strain will apparently require him to be sidelined for more than 10 days. Benintendi should be considered out indefinitely until the team provides a more specific recovery timeline. Alex Verdugo, Jackie Bradley and Kevin Pillar should handle to bulk of the outfield work for the Red Sox.
Benintendi was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a strained right rib cage, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Benintendi apparently picked up the injury during a rundown in Tuesday's loss. X-rays came back negative, but the issue is still serious enough to keep the outfielder sidelined for at least 10 days. In his absence, Kevin Pillar, Alex Verdugo and Jackie Bradley should handle the majority of outfield duties for Boston. Ryan Weber was added to the roster in a corresponding move.
