The best part?
The two clubs open a four-game set tonight in the Bronx.
Let’s check out some Benintendi player props as he faces his former club for the first time since being dealt.
Andrew Benintendi HR Odds
+490 — Caesars
Anthony Rizzo’s proven to be a sneaky good left-handed addition in the middle of the order, using Yankee Stadium’s short porch in right to his advantage. He’s bashed 13 of his 23 homers in the Bronx, which could perhaps boost Benintendi’s numbers back up.
The newly acquired outfielder only has three dingers this season, though it’s been well-documented Benintendi’s changed his swing to become more focused on contact, rather than power-hitting which, frankly, failed in his final lap with the Red Sox.

Andrew Benintendi Total Bases Props
1.5 (over +105, under -135) — DraftKings
Benintendi and the Yankees offense draw right-hander Brady Singer tonight.
It should be a favorable matchup for the Bronx Bombers against Singer, who’s been poor in opponent average exit velocity, chase rate, barrel percentage and hard-hit rate, among other metrics.
Benintendi’s total hits prop, meanwhile, is also listed at 1.5 (the over’s +185, the under -260).
He’s tied for seventh in all of baseball in total hits (111) entering Thursday and has multiple hits in 12 of his past 22 games.
