Renfroe is hitting fourth and playing right field against the Reds on Saturday. The 27-year-old hasn't manned the cleanup spot since April 14, as the Padres have let Wil Myers and Franmil Reyes handle the role, but Renfroe gets the nod Saturday against right-hander Luis Castillo and the Reds. Renfroe is supplying decent power numbers so far this season, with a .574 slugging percentage with four homers through 54 at-bats.
Renfroe hit a pinch-hit two-run home run in San Diego's 5-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday. The power-hitting 27-year-old made his appearance in the sixth inning count, mashing a two-run shot off Dominic Leone to help the Padres to the victory. He's 5-for-16 to with three long balls to start the season as he looks to top the 25-homer mark for a third straight campaign.
Renfroe went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in the Padres' 8-5 loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Renfroe had one hit in seven at-bats coming into the contest, but he broke out against Arizona, touching up Zack Greinke for two long balls. The 27-year-old has hit 26 homers and topped 20 doubles in each of the last two seasons despite not reaching 500 at-bats in either campaign, so he should be a decent source of power once again when he's in the lineup, even if his suspect plate discipline means he's unlikely to post a high batting average or on-base percentage.
Renfroe (fatigue) is starting in left field and hitting sixth Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Renfroe has been withheld from action recently due to general fatigue, but he's ready to rejoin the lineup after taking some time off to rest. The outfielder has struggled so far this spring, hitting just .172/.219/.310 with one homer through 11 games.
Renfroe (general fatigue) isn't available for Monday's Cactus League game against the Indians, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Manager Andy Green revealed over the weekend that Renfroe and fellow outfielder Franmil Reyes had both been withheld from the lineup for the past few days due to fatigue, but neither player looks to be in any jeopardy of missing Opening Day. Reyes will check back into the starting nine Monday and could be joined by Renfroe -- who is scheduled to get five at-bats in a minor-league game Monday, per Acee -- as soon as Tuesday.
