Red Sox place OF Benintendi on bereavement list

Outfielder Andrew Benintendi was placed on the bereavement list by the Boston Red Sox on Friday.

Benintendi’s spot on the 25-man roster is being filled by first baseman/outfielder Sam Travis, who was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move comes on the heels of third baseman Rafael Devers landing on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

Benintendi, 24, is batting .297 with 14 home runs, 57 RBIs, 68 runs scored and an .897 OPS in 91 games. He also leads the team with 17 steals and 49 walks.

Travis, 24, has appeared in four games (three starts) with Boston this season. He has two hits in 12 at-bats.
