KC Royals Trades: 4 Andrew Benintendi deals to ponder

Trade rumors have surrounded KC Royals left fielder Andrew Benintendi and, with the Aug. 2 trade deadline now less than a month away, they’ll only increase. Because Benintendi’s value is so high—after going 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a walk in the Royals’ heartbreaking 7-6 loss to Houston Monday, he’s slashing .314/.380/.400—now seems like a good time for the Royals to entertain deals for their Gold Glove left fielder, especially considering he’s in his contract year and can test free agency after the season ends.

Royals' Andrew Benintendi: Posts three hits, two RBI Monday

Benintendi went 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Astros. Benintendi has multiple hits in six of his last seven games. He's gone 13-for-26 (.500) in that span, but only one of those hits has gone for extra bases (a double). It's more of the same for the veteran outfielder, who has maintained a strong .314 batting average with a rather pedestrian .780 OPS through 77 contests. He's added three home runs, 31 RBI, 30 runs scored, a stolen base, 12 doubles and two triples while regularly slotting in as the Royals' No. 2 hitter.
