Benintendi went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Monday's loss to Cleveland.
While Benintendi isn't posting big numbers in any particular stat column, the rookie is turning in a strong cross-category showing. He's now up to a .279/.358/.449 with 18 homers, 70 RBI , 14 stolen bases and 64 runs. It's also encouraging that Benintendi appears to be solidifying himself as the No. 3 hitter in the lineup.
Benintendi (knee) is starting in left field and hitting third Wednesday against the Cardinals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
He left Tuesday's game as a precaution after getting hit by a pitch in the fifth inning, and it was indeed a minor issue, as he is back in for the following game. Benintendi is red-hot, hitting .361/.437/.656 with five home runs and five steals over his last 61 at-bats.
Benintendi (knee) was removed from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals for precautionary reasons, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.
Benintendi was hit by a pitch on his knee in the fifth inning and was lifted from the game as a precaution. The left fielder said his knee was sore but that he won't require any testing and should be good to go for Wednesday's game.
Benintendi exited Tuesday's game against the Cardinals prior to the sixth inning, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.
Benintendi was hit by a pitch on the knee during his first at-bat in the fifth inning. He stayed in the game and came around to score during the frame. The Red Sox batted around and Benintendi was afforded another at-bat in which he lined out to left. The young outfielder was replaced by Chris Young between innings and though the reason for his early removal hasn't been announced, it's possible that the team removed him as a precautionary reason, as the Red Sox were up 9-0 at the time.
Benintendi went 2-for-5 with two home runs and six RBI in Saturday's win over the Yankees.
The 23-year-old connected on a pair of three-run homers, both off Luis Severino. Benintendi has been on an excellent run of late, hitting safely in all but one start so far this month, with six multi-hit games and four homers over that span. He's establishing himself as an upper-tier fantasy outfielder.
