Andrew Benintendi batting second for Royals Monday

Kansas City Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi will bat second in Monday's series opener against right-hander Aaron Civale and the Cleveland Indians.

What It Means:

Benintendi has been bumped back up to second in the order after going a combined 5-for-8 with a pair of home runs on Saturday and Sunday. His slash line for the season is up to .273/.347/.420 following a pretty dreadful start. Carlos Santana will hit third and Salvador Perez will be the Royals' cleanup man on Monday. Jorge Soler will bat fifth.
