Renda spent just under a month with the big league club, but he'll return to Louisville as the
Renda has played just 23 games with Louisville since being promoted from Double-A Pensacola, but is headed up to the show for the first time in his career. He posted a .280 batting average with Louisville and will likely be used occasionally at second base to give 35-year-old Brandon Phillips extra time off.
Renda has a .281/.331/.419 line after playing 44 games at Double-A Pensacola.
After being acquired from the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman trade, Renda has shown his value to the Reds organization by posting his best Double-A numbers to date. Renda's 13 doubles, three triples, and home run have contributed to his career best slugging percentage of .419. Before hitting a rough patch in mid-May, he'd been sustaining a batting average above .300. Pensacola would especially like Renda to recover from his slump, for he's a threat while on base and has yet to be caught stealing this season.
Tony Renda was traded to the Cincinnati Reds along with three other players in a deal that saw Aroldis Chapman join the Yankees, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Renda was acquired by the Yankees in a July deal with the Nationals. In 480 at-bats between the two minor league teams, the 24-year-old put together a .269/.330/.358 slash line to go along with three home runs and 44 RBI. Considering the Reds were unable to deal Brandon Phillips during the Winter Meetings and acquired 21-year-old second baseman Jose Peraza in a massive three-team trade earlier this month, it appears as if Renda's path to the majors will be blocked for some time. He'll likely continue to hone his batting abilities in the minors for the foreseeable future.
