Andrew Benintendi wouldn't say whether he will get vaccinated for COVID-19 now that he's with the first-place New York Yankees rather than the last-place Kansas City Royals.

A day after New York acquired the 28-year-old All-Star from the Royals for three minor league pitchers, Benintendi went 0 for 4 with a strikeout in his Yankees debut, a 1-0 win over his former team on Thursday night. Benintendi hit leadoff and played left field.

He was among 10 Royals who missed a four-game series at Toronto from July 14-17 because he was not vaccinated and could not enter Canada. He lost $186,813 of the $8.5 million salary.
