Andrew Benintendi batting second for Royals Monday
Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi will bat second in Monday's series opener against right-hander Aaron Civale and the Cleveland Indians.
Benintendi has been bumped back up to second in the order after going a combined 5-for-8 with a pair of home runs on Saturday and Sunday. His slash line for the season is up to .273/.347/.420 following a pretty dreadful start. Carlos Santana will hit third and Salvador Perez will be the Royals' cleanup man on Monday. Jorge Soler will bat fifth.
numberFire’s models project Benintendi for 8.3 FanDuel points and he has a $3,400 salary on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Royals have an implied total of 4.1 runs.
