New York Yankees outfielder Andrew Benintendi has suffered a wrist fracture and will need surgery, according to manager Aaron Boone. New York has put the outfielder on the 10-day injured list, but given the nature of the injury he could potentially be out for the whole season.

Benintendi has been solid for the Yankees since coming over from the Kansas City Royals at the trade deadline, hitting .254 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 33 games. He’s made 31 starts in that time. If Benintendi is done for the year, look for the Yankees to lean on Aaron Hicks and Oswaldo Cabrera in the outfield. Matt Carpenter is also battling an injury but he’s a useful utility player who can man an outfield spot as well.
