  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Sitting Wednesday

    Benintendi is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Mariners.

    Benintendi will get a breather after he went 5-for-14 with three doubles, three RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base over the last three contests. Miguel Andujar will take over in left field and bat seventh in the series finale.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Picking up steam

    Benintendi went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, a run and three RBI in Monday's 9-4 victory versus Seattle.

    Benintendi knocked a run-scoring double in the third inning and drove home two more with another double in the fifth. The veteran outfielder had a slow start to his tenure with the Yankees, going 2-for-25 over his first nine games. Benintendi may be turning things around, though, as he's gone 4-for-9 with three extra-base hits over his past two contests.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Heads to bench

    Benintendi will sit Saturday against the Cardinals.

    Benintendi started eight straight games after coming over in a trade with the Royals in late July, but he hasn't had much success at the plate, grabbing just two hits. Aaron Hicks will be the left fielder Saturday.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Collects sixth steal

    Benintendi 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Mariners.

    The 28-year-old outfielder has gone just 1-for-20 to begin his Yankees tenure, but he's drawn eight walks in seven games and chipped in two of his six steals on the season. Benintendi is still batting .305 on the year, and it's only a matter of time until hits start falling in for him in pinstripes.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Swipes fifth bag

    Benintendi went 0-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base in an 8-6 loss Sunday against Kansas City.

    Benintendi walked in the fourth and sixth innings -- stealing second in the sixth -- and grounded out in his other two plate appearances. The veteran is 1-for-10 with six walks since being acquired in a trade with Kansas City. He compiled a .341/.444/.378 line with no homers, four stolen bases and a 16:11 BB:K in 25 July games. In four games as a Yankee, he's hit first, third, fifth and sixth while starting in left field each game.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Heading to Bronx

    The Yankees are finalizing a trade to acquire Benintendi from the Royals on Wednesday in exchange for three minor-league players, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the minor-league players are pitchers Beck Way, Chandler Champlain and T.J. Sikkema.

    Benintendi went 1-for-4 during Kansas City's loss to the Angels on Wednesday, and it will end up being his final game with the club. The 28-year-old, who is a free agent after the season, has a .320/.387/.398 slash line with three home runs, 39 RBI, 40 runs and four stolen bases in 92 games this year, and he should play a significant role in New York's outfield the rest of the campaign, especially with Giancarlo Stanton (Achilles) recently landing on the injured list. The Royals and Yankees begin a four-game series Thursday in New York, so Benintendi should quickly be able to join his new team.

  • Royals' Andrew Benintendi: Collects three hits, swipes bag

    Benintendi went 3-for-5 with two runs and a stolen base in Monday's 7-0 win against the Angels.

    Benintendi singled and stole second base in the first inning, but he was left stranded there. The outfielder's subsequent two singles had better endings, as he scored in each of the seventh and eighth frames. Benintendi continues to be the subject of trade rumors, but that hasn't distracted him at the plate. He's put together a six-game hitting streak during which he's batting .423 (11-for-26) with five runs, four RBI and two steals.

  • Royals' Andrew Benintendi: Swipes bag in win

    Benintendi went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Rays.

    Benintendi picked up his third steal of the season in the third inning. All of those thefts have come since June 20. The outfielder is 7-for-17 (.412) in his last four contests, a continuation of his solid hitting all year. He owns a .318/.389/.400 slash line with three home runs, 39 RBI, 38 runs scored, 14 doubles and two triples through 373 plate appearances. He's hit second or third for much of the season with the Royals, though he remains a top trade candidate ahead of the Aug. 2 trade deadline.
