Andrew Benintendi has been a solid contributor for the Kansas City Royals in his first year with the team. Unfortunately, his 2020 bounce-back campaign has hit a bit of a speed bump, as the 26-year-old outfielder has been placed on the 10-day Injured List due to a rib issue.

Andrew Benintendi Injury Update

The former Boston Red Sox is dealing with a fractured right rib, and his absence creates a huge void in the Royals' lineup.

Benintendi is slashing .283/.340/.429 with 8 home runs and 31 RBI through 60 games this season. That had him on a 162-game pace to club 22 home runs, which would be a career high.

Hopefully, the talented young outfielder can get back on the diamond soon. His Royals currently have odds of +1400 to win the AL Central, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
