Benintendi Switches Uniform Number From 40 To 16
Andrew Benintendi will be reunited with his old number at the major-league level. Somehow, we believe Benintendi will look even faster by dropping twenty-four numbers off his back. The 22-year old had a breakout year in 2016 before getting injured—and is viewed by many pundits as a top candidate for 2017 AL Rookie Of The Year. Interestingly, Deven Marrero was the previous owner of the number sixteen—so there may be a really nice watch coming Deven's way soon. We're sure they will both work things out at Spring Training.
