Andrew Benintendi – Hot!

Well…three games are really not much of a sample for the 2015 first round selection, but give him some props for a nice beginning.

The 20-year-old signed his slot quickly and moved on to Lowell A- for his professional baptism. The short sample slash is .385/.467/.615 with a home run and two RBI for the fleet left-handed batter.

Beinintendi, ranked seventh in the Red Sox system, rose rapidly in the draft rankings with an excellent power display in college, tossing in a superior OBP and an OPS that would make most players envious – but college is one thing and pros are another and there is a very long list of first round failures.
