Benny Baseball had a tough early adjustment to AA ball, hitting just .213 in his first dozen games after being called up in mid-May. However, he seems to have found his stride in June, hitting a solid .316 this month. Of course, that’s after tearing up A ball before the promotion.

Here’s a nice recent story on Benintendi from the Boston press: http://www.masslive.com/redsox/index.ss … ndi_3.html
