Red Sox Place Andrew Benintendi On Bereavement List, Re-Call Sam Travis

The Red Sox announced today that they have placed OF Andrew Benintendi on the bereavement list. 1B Sam Travis was recalled from AAA Pawtucket to fill Benintendi's spot on the 25-man roster. No details were given regarding the leave, and it's unclear when Benintendi will return to the ballclub. So far this season, Benintendi is hitting .297 with 25 doubles, 5 triples, 14 HRs, 57 RBIs, 68 runs scored, and an .897 OPS. With only three games remaining until the All-Star Break, it seems likely that the left-fielder will return sometime after that—perhaps July 20th in Detroit.
