Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi is expected to miss the rest of the 2020 MLB season by being transferred to the 45-day IL.
Red Sox Manager Ron Roenicke told the media that Benintendi's season will be over after suffering a strained rib cage.
This comes on a very bad timing, since the Red Sox just traded Kevin Pillar to Colorado Rockies. Everything looks so uncertain for the Red Sox; they haven0t found a reliable player to cover for Benintendi, at least for the next 20 days that will cover the rest of the 2020 MLB schedule.
I case you're wondering, the Boston Red Sox won't be making the Postseason.

Apart from this, Benintendi's season was one of the worst in the MLB, with .103 BA, going 4-for-39, with no home runs.
