Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi (ribs) went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts during Sunday’s 6-2 loss to the Twins.
Benintendi was reinstated from the 10-day injured list on Sunday. He’s been sidelined since June 14 with a fractured rib. Benny went hitless over three at-bats and was replaced later in the game by Hanser Alberto. The 26-year-old is slashing .279/.336/.423 with eight home runs, 31 RBI, 31 runs scored, and seven stolen bases across 61 games in 2021. Benintendi should be rostered in all league formats and fantasy managers can safely insert him into weekly formats starting Monday.
