After getting adjusted to playing with a wood bat, 2015 Red Sox first-round pick (No. 7 overall) Andrew Benintendi has been on a tear at the plate of late. The center fielder out of the University of Arkansas has hit .405 with three home runs over his last 10 games and has been promoted to Single-A Greenville, according to a source. In 35 games with Lowell, he's slashed .290/.408/.540 with seven home runs and 15 RBIs. He now will join Single-A Greenville, which has 21 games left in its regular season. The news of the promotion first was reported by Sox Prospects. For more Red Sox news, visit
