Benintendi signs with Red Sox

Madeira High School graduate Andrew Benintendi signed his first professional contract with the Boston Red Sox after being drafted with the seventh pick of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.

Madeira-native Andrew Benintendi has signed his first professional contract.

After being drafted by the Boston Red Sox as the seventh overall selection in the 2015 Major League Baseball draft, Benintendi put pen to paper on June 30, signing with the club. He was given a signing bonus of $3,590,400, per MLB.com.

He’s expected to report to Boston’s Single-A short-season affiliate, the Lowell Spinners. Other details of his contract were not disclosed.

Benintendi, who’s father Chris is from Georgetown and mother Jill is from Ripley, had a monster 2015 college baseball season for the Arkansas Razorbacks.

The 20-year-old led the Razorbacks to the College World Series and on a personal level, he took home the Golden Spikes Award and the Dick Howser Trophy, he was named the national player of the year by Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball, and he was named player of the year by the Southeastern Conference.

In the 2015 season, Benintendi dominated the SEC at the plate. In 65 games, he had a .376 batting average to go with 20 home runs, 57 RBIs, 50 walks, 13 doubles, two triples, and 24 steals. He became the first player in school history and the first college player since 2009 to have a season with 20 home runs and 20 steals.

The sophomore outfielder led the SEC in batting average, home runs, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, and walks.

Those numbers were an outstanding rise from his freshman statistics, where he finished the season with a .276 batting average, one home run, 27 RBIs, and 24 walks.

The Razorbacks fell to the eventual national champion, Virginia, in their first College World Series matchup before losing to the University of Miami in the losers bracket to end their 2015 season.

The Lowell Spinners play in the 14-team New York-Penn league that spans from Northeast Ohio in the west and Massachusetts in the east. The Spinners’ season began on June 19 and goes through September 7.
