Bizarre call indeed. Angel Hernandez is known for such umpiring. After the game, he was honest about it. He said he couldn't see what happened, but it was his call so he had to do something. He called it wrong. Everyone else knew the fly ball was not caught, except for Benintendi who relied on Angel's call to head back toward second base where he was tagged out. Then, in review, he was called safe. Indians did it right, Royals did the best they could, Angel guessed wrong. "Frustrating," said Francona.

What a bizarre call by Angel Hernandez.

Benintendi went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three runs and two RBI as Kansas City beat Minnesota 11-3 on Saturday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Benintendi accounted for the Royals final two runs on the day with solo blasts in the sixth and eighth innings while also singling and scoring in the fourth. The first-year Royal is coming around with hits in five straight games.

The discount was substantial in CBS - got him at $ 12 at a time when there was still plenty of money around to chase OFs (100th pick) - a total of $56 was spent on Clint Frazier, Laureano, and Gallo over the next 5 picks.

I see a 26-year old with wheels moving from a team which attempted 40 SB last year ... to a team which attempted 69 SB last year.  And there isn't anything in KC's depth chart that makes me worry a lot about PT.  Happy to bet on a 20+ SB season.

The Royals obviously say hear, hear to the conclusion of Peter's comment: "Take advantage of all the discount you can get on draft day this year. He's not old enough to write off."

In a three-way deal, he's moving to the Royals.
