Andrew Benintendi Arrives In The Major Leagues Tonight
Having just survived the MLB Trade Deadline, Sox #2 prospect Andrew Benintendi will be in a big league uniform tonight in Seattle. Red Sox honcho Dave Dombrowski announced the promotion of the left-fielder from AA Portland after last night's win. The 22-year old has hit .312 at all minor league stops this season—with nine HRs and 76 RBIs in 97 games. He should see a considerable amount of playing time in LF down the stretch. Some have compared the 5'10" left-hand hitting Benintendi to Hall of Fame OF Carl Yastrzemski. Frankly, we'd be happy with 2/3 of a Yaz career! Good luck, Andrew!
