The Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox, and New York Mets have worked out a deal that would send Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi to the Royals.
Kansas City will send prospect Franchy Cordero to the Red Sox in return for Benintendi.
Kansas City Royals Outfield Prospect Khalil Lee is expected to go to the New York Mets as part of this trade.
Lee is ranked as the Royals eighth best prospect and has a ton of speed to go along with some pop. The outfielder was actually also scouted as a pitcher, as well. So his outfield arm should be on point. This is a great acquisition, considering all the details haven’t been revealed yet.
With a lot of the Mets prospects being pitchers and players that are slotted elsewhere, this give the Mets the opportunity to strengthen their outfield prospects.
The Mets will send Josh Winchowski to the Red Sox and the Mets will also send out a PTBNL.
