White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Nets five-year pact with White Sox
Benintendi (wrist) signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Benintendi put together a .304/.373/.399 slash line with five home runs and eight stolen bases for the Royals and Yankees this past season. He doesn't run nearly as well as he used to and his already modest power bottomed out in 2022. However, Benintendi does offer good on-base skills and an adequate glove. He should score a good number of runs if he wins a spot high in the White Sox's batting order. Benintendi had hamate bone surgery in September, but he should be fine for spring training....

Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Won't return for ALCS
The Yankees didn't activate Benintendi (wrist) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday in advance of Game 1 of their American League Championship Series with the Astros.
According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, Benintendi was never viewed as a good bet to make it back for this round of the postseason, despite having recently taken batting practice against high-velocity pitching. He still needs more time to regain strength in his surgically repaired wrist, but the Yankees haven't ruled out the possibility of Benintendi being available for the World Series if New York should get past Houston....

Benintendi broke the hook of his hamate bone in early September and underwent surgery. He hasn't experienced any setbacks in his recovery process, but he said Thursday that his mindset during his rehab has been to prepare for a potential postseason return. The 28-year-old isn't sure when he'll be able to resume swinging a bat, but he hopes that he'll be in the mix to return during the playoffs. If the Yankees win the American League East, they'll begin postseason play in the ALDS on Oct. 11.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Requires surgery
Benintendi (wrist) broke the hook of his hamate bone and will undergo surgery during the upcoming week, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Getting surgery Tuesday
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Benintendi's right wrist surgery is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Benintendi's upcoming procedure will repair the hook of the hamate bone in his wrist and is expected to keep him on the shelf for several weeks, which could mean that he won't play again during the regular season. A clearer timeline on Benintendi's recovery may come forth once the procedure is completed, but for at least the time being, his absence will open up more reps in left field for the likes of Aaron Hicks, Estevan Florial, Tim Locastro and Marwin Gonzalez....
