Benintendi Already Impresses At Short-A Level

Andrew Benintendi—Boston's top pick in this year's MLB Draft—is already on a tear as a member of the Short-A Lowell Spinners. Benintendi (who turns 21 today) has played just three games for Lowell—but check out his stats: .385 AVG, 1 HR, 2 RBIs, 2 BB, 1 SB. Not bad, huh? The currently reigning Collegiate Player Of The Year will likely be promoted soon to a higher-A club in the Red Sox minor league system. And, at this pace, he might end up as high as AA Portland before the year is out. Catch him while you can at Edward A. LeLacheur Park in Lowell. Or, you might just turn around and find out he's in the dugout at Fenway!
