  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Not starting in second matchup

    Benintendi is not listed amongst the starters for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Benintendi started in the first game of the twin bill and went 1-for-4 in a 4-2 loss, but he will get a break for the second contest. The 29-year-old now has a .175/.224/.190 slash line through 16 games this season.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: On base three times Sunday

    Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Benintendi drove in a run on a fifth-inning single for his first RBI of the year. He's been absolutely miserable at the plate in the early going, slashing just .139/.184/.139 with five base hits and his one RBI in 36 at-bats.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Plagued by hand injury last season

    Benintendi said Tuesday that he was held back by a hand injury last season, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Benintendi's 2022 season ended prematurely due to right hamate surgery and soreness his hand/wrist area evidently lingered for much of the 2023 campaign. He never went on the injured list but did miss about a week of action around midseason. The injury could at least partly explain Benintendi's meager .262/.326/.356 batting line last season, so perhaps at least a modest resurgence might be in store in 2024 now that he's apparently fully recovered. For what it's worth, Benintendi said he had "one of my best offseasons," while gaining some strength.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Likely to bat leadoff?

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol listed Benintendi when asked Monday about potential leadoff hitters, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Grifol said he had a few players in mind, but Benintendi is the only one he mentioned by name, suggesting the 29-year-old could be the favorite to hit at the top of the batting order. It's not a surprise, especially considering the team's lack of options. Benintendi's first season in Chicago in 2023 was a lackluster one, as he slashed just .262/.326/.356 with five home runs and 13 stolen bases. He has four years and $66.4 million remaining on his contract.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Riding pine in finale

    Benintendi is not in Sunday's lineup against the Padres.

    The White Sox are resting several regulars on the final day of the season, and Tyler Naquin will be patrolling left field. Benintendi's contract should lock him in to a sizable role next season, but he ended up being a replacement-level player (0.0 fWAR) over 151 games in the first year of a five-year, $75 million deal.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Sitting versus lefty

    Benintendi is not in the lineup for Friday's game in Boston.

    The Red Sox are starting southpaw Chris Sale, so the left-handed hitting Benintendi will begin this one on the bench. Zach Remillard will be in left field for the White Sox.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Not starting nightcap

    Benintendi isn't in the White Sox's lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Kansas City, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Benintendi went 0-for-3 with a walk and came around to score in the first game of Tuesday's slate, and he'll be replaced in left field by Trayce Thompson for the second half of the twin bill.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Suddenly finding power

    Benintendi went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Saturday against the Athletics.

    Benintendi managed only two home runs across his first 117 games with the White Sox, but he now has three homers across his last five starts. He's hit particularly well of late, as he has at least one hit in 10 of his last 12 games while maintaining a .333 average with seven RBI and nine runs scored in that span. Benintendi's performance remains underwhelming overall, though his recent surge has pushed his OPS over .700 for the season.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Swats homer in loss

    Benintendi went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in a loss to the Athletics on Thursday.

    Benintendi got Chicago off to a quick start with a solo shot to right field in the first inning, and he added a run-scoring single in the fifth. The outfielder has surprised by going deep twice in his past three games after hitting just two home runs over his first 117 contests of the campaign. Benintendi is in the mist of a six-game hitting streak, during which he's slashing .435/.458/.739 with the two homers, five RBI, five runs and a stolen base.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Idle Wednesday

    Benintendi is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

    Benintendi will get a breather for the matinee game after he started in every contest for the White Sox dating back to Aug. 7. He served as the White Sox's leadoff hitter in Tuesday's 6-3 loss, but Benintendi will cede those duties Wednesday to shortstop Tim Anderson, who is back in action after completing his five-game suspension.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Three hits, steal in win

    Benintendi went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-5 win over the Rockies.

    Benintendi has managed three multi-hit efforts over 17 games this month, batting .222 (14-for-63) with three doubles and no home runs in that span. The steal was also his first since July 26. The light-hitting outfielder is slashing .272/.337/.352 with two homers, 13 steals, 33 RBI and 59 runs scored over 116 contests this season.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: On bench Sunday

    Benintendi is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Cleveland, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Benintendi started the past six games but will take a seat Sunday despite the fact a right-hander (Xzavion Curry) is pitching for the Guardians. Trayce Thompson will start in left field and bat sixth in the series finale.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Sitting against lefty

    Benintendi is not in Saturday's lineup against the Guardians.

    This is Benintendi's first day off since he missed a couple games in early July with a wrist issue, and he has started twice against lefties over that span of 13 straight starts. Zach Remillard will start in left field and bat ninth against southpaw Logan Allen.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Records 12th steal

    Benintendi went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 10-7 loss to the Cubs.

    Benintendi has enjoyed a steady July, batting .270 (20-for-74) with a home run, eight RBI, three steals and 13 runs scored over 17 contests. He continues to occupy the leadoff spot for the White Sox, though the lineup behind him is far from a potent one. Benintendi is slashing .284/.348/.372 with two homers, 29 RBI, 51 runs scored and 12 steals over 96 games.
