Andrew Benintendi has been filling in nicely as the leadoff hitter in the absence of Mookie Betts.
The Boston Red Sox outfielder has put together impressive numbers since his teammate landed on the 10-day disabled list last Friday. Benintendi has been scorching over the past two weeks, hitting .367 with five home runs and 14 RBIs.
NESN’s Dave O’Brien and Dennis Eckersley broke down Benintendi’s numbers in the leadoff spot, as well as discussed how big his presence is to the Boston offense.
To hear from O’Brien and Eckersley, check out the video above from “Red Sox Gameday Live,” presented by DCU.
