From The Athletic:
The 26-year-old has played five seasons in the big leagues. He won a World Series in 2018. And in college at Arkansas he won the Golden Spikes Award. That’s the historical context.
More recently in 2020, Benintendi struggled. He played in 14 games, posting a .442 OPS. A right rib cage strain shut him down in August, ending his season, but those 52 plate appearances did not concern the Royals.
“We believe in the player,” Moore said. “He’s performed at every level. We’re confident he can get back to his accustomed level. He’s just entering his prime, and we know from our information he’s worked his tail off this offseason. He’s in great shape.”
We know that Benny has always worked at his craft, so there is no surprise there. Now if I can just figure out a way to watch that does not entail going back to DirecTV or Cox. Sigh. I’ll probably drop YouTube TV for Hulu, especially since I can now get AETN live via the PBS app on my TV. But that only gets me the Cards and rarely the Royals. Sigh again.
