Benintendi will get a fresh start with the Royals in 2021, and if any player ever needed a change of scenery, it's him. After looking like a perennial 20-20 player with a solid batting average, Benintendi has fallen off a cliff the last two years. To the extent you could boil his struggles down to something simple, it was that he appeared to get too homer-happy in 2019. Despite making better contact when he did hit the ball, his swinging strike rate jumped by four points to 11.6%, and his fly ball percentage and launch angle skyrocketed. Things didn't look much better in his brief 2020 season, which was cut short by a rib injury. Benintendi is still young, and out of the spotlight of the Boston media, might be able to return to what made him an impact player prior to 2019. You won't need to spend a ton to find out, thankfully, and he's worth a late-round pick in all formats.

The Royals, Red Sox, and Mets made a three-team deal involving Andrew Benintendi. Other notable players involved include Franchy Cordero to the Red Sox and outfield prospect Khalil Lee to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Andrew Benintendi should immediately contribute to the Royals lineup. In the first half of 2019, he batted at the leadoff spot, but then later batted towards the middle of the order as the season progressed. Given his OBP skills with a career .353 OBP, he should bat towards the top of the Royals lineup assuming he produces.
