The Kansas City Royals have had a forgettable start to the season, opening the year with a 17-35 record. Things were threatening to get even worse last night, as Andrew Benintendi left Sunday's game against the Houston Astros after fouling a ball off his leg.

Thankfully, the injury doesn't appear to be too serious, as Benintendi seems confident that he'll be able to suit up on Monday.

Losing Benintendi would be a devastating blow to this offense. He's slashing .321/.384/.415 with 8 doubles, 2 home runs, and 21 RBI. Royals fans can breathe a sigh of relief now that they know the rising 27-year-old star should be just fine.

Still, Kansas City doesn't appear to be a contender even with Benintendi at full strength. The Royals are available at +20000 to win the AL Central and are tied for the third-worst World Series odds (+100000), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
