Andrew Benintendi's Recovery Is "Ahead Of Schedule"
After two crushing road losses where the offense could not get untracked, it was announced that rookie LF Andrew Benintendi is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a left knee sprain. Yesterday, the 22-year old phenom engaged is some baseball activities. Today, he will be fitted with a knee brace—that will allow him to ramp-up those activities even further. Despite the progress, Benintendi is not expected to return to the lineup during this road trip—which ends next Sunday in SkyDome (never to be referred to as Rogers Centre). Look for a possible return during the Baltimore series at Fenway starting on September 12th—which would be much quicker than originally anticipated.
