Red Sox offensive production starts with the letter B
Andrew Benintendi (B4) is the newest addition the B’s. Okay I’ll admit it. First off, Benintendi has the most exciting name in Boston since Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Just how some have butchered his name, Benintendi will butcher opposing pitching.
He’s still rookie eligible and is considered the top prospect in baseball and front runner for the ROY Award at the end of the season.
Benintendi only had 105 at-bats last season. Considering his numbers from last year and what he’s been able do so far in Spring Training, the Red Sox are ready to see what he can do. In Spring Training so far Benintendi is hitting .409 with 2 home runs and 6 RBI’s. This includes a span when he went 6-for-7 with 4 doubles and a home run, while adding 4 RBI’s against the Atlanta Braves. Sox fans are ready to see Benintendi contribute this season.
Next: David Price is more than just a baseball player
From ending last season on a bit of a low note and losing David Ortiz to retirement, the Red Sox have a lot to look forward to going into 2017. The Red Sox have the four B’s in the line up and an All-Star pitching rotation ready to go. They’ve also got a rejuvenated Pablo Sandoval coming back this year. It’s good to see the Panda healthy and in great shape. Barring any setbacks, the Red Sox will be one of the more dominant teams in baseball with a sure bet shot to make the playoffs. 2017 is certainly shaping up to be a great year for the Sox and their fans.
