  • The Red Sox selected Benintendi’s college teammate Tyler Spoon with their 35th round pick and have assigned the former Arkansas star to the Gulf Coast League. Spoon’s future isn’t nearly as bright as Benintendi’s, but it’s still an interesting story that the two players, who batted 3rd and 4th in Arkansas’s lineup, are in the same organization once more.
