Andrew Benintendi Could Return As Soon As Tomorrow

Part of being really young is that you heal fast. Such is the case with Red Sox LF Andrew Benintendi. The rookie passed his last physical test yesterday by executing sliding drills and is now likely to come off the disabled list this week—perhaps as soon as Wednesday. Said Benintendi, "I feel really good. Been working a lot with the training staff, they’ve done a great job and I feel like I’m ready to go." The left knee sprain that put the kid on DL back on August 25th could have been a lot worse. Of course, after Chris Young's 4-4 night on Monday, playing time might not come back as quickly as it might have otherwise. Stay tuned!
