Per ESPN, the Royals have placed Benintendi on the 10-day injured list with a fractured right rib that he suffered during Sunday's matchup against the Oakland Athletics.

"He had something grab when he threw yesterday," Kansas City manager Mike Matheny explained about Benintendi's setback on Monday. "He'd been feeling a little bit of something for a while. Obviously, it wasn't affecting his swing. On the throw, it grabbed him. He was fine last night. Woke up today and it wasn't right. He had it X-rayed."
