KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Royals left fielder Andrew Benintendi has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right rib fracture, the team announced Monday.

“It really happened when he made a throw at Oakland. The ball bounced off the wall and he felt something at the time and felt pretty good, but when he got up this morning, it really locked up on him, got an X-ray done and there was a hairline fracture,” said Royals manager Mike Matheny.

Outfielder Edward Olivares has called up from the Kansas City Triple-A affiliate, Omaha Storm Chasers.
