Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi to miss rest of season

Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi will not return this season, manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday.

Benintendi, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Aug. 12 because of a strained right rib cage, was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday.

He ends his season with just a .103 average with no home runs and one RBI in 52 plate appearances. He is a career .273 hitter and finished second in American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2017.

The Red Sox, at 14-28 this season entering Tuesday's games, are in last place in the AL East.
