Top Tony Renda News

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Remains with Red Sox

    Renda signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Renda was designated for assignment at the start of November but will remain in the Red Sox organization for now. The 27-year-old slashed .318/.373/.453 between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, and will continue to provide organizational depth at second base as Dustin Pedroia continues his recovery from his knee issues.

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Outrighted to Pawtucket

    Renda was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

    This move takes Renda off the club's 40-man roster, which will free up a spot for the Red Sox to protect a younger prospect from the Rule 5 draft. Renda split time between Double- and Triple-A this past season, slashing a combined .318/.373/.453 with five home runs, 27 RBI and 10 stolen bases. He did play in one game for the big-league team, making his Boston debut as a pinch runner versus the Yankees in early August. Renda will remain in the Red Sox's system as additional infield depth for the time being.

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Returning to Triple-A

    Renda will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Rafael Devers (hamstring) will make his return from the disabled list, ending Renda's current stint in the majors. The 27-year-old served as a pinch runner and scored a run in his Red Sox debut Sunday against the Yankees, but did not have a plate appearance.

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Headed to Boston

    Renda will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket prior to Saturday's matchup against the Yankees, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    Renda is set for his Red Sox debut after Ian Kinsler, Rafael Devers and Blake Swihart all ended up on the disabled list with hamstring injuries. Renda was hitting .318 with one homer and seven RBI through 20 games at Triple-A, and he'll likely draw starts at the keystone along with Brock Holt until the Boston infield returns to health.

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Inks minors deal with Boston

    Renda signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Monday, MLB.com reports.

    Renda played exclusively at the Triple-A level in 2017 while splitting time between the Cincinnati and Arizona systems, slashing .250/.293/.317 across 208 at-bats. He'll likely report to Triple-A Pawtucket or Double-A Portland with his new organization and will function as a depth option in the infield.

  • Diamondbacks' Tony Renda: Traded to Arizona

    Renda was traded to the Diamondbacks on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    The 26-year-old was batting .260 with one home run in 198 plate appearances at Triple-A Louisville and wasn't viewed as a long-term asset by the Reds, so he was jettisoned to a new organization in order to free up a roster spot for Louisville. His defensive versatility and plate discipline are fine attributes, but those skills won't give him much appeal in the fantasy realm.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Sent down to minors

    Renda was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    A .295/.404/.523 showing in the Cactus League wasn't enough for Renda to force his way back onto the 40-man roster after being outrighted in December. The 26-year-old Renda appeared to hurt himself on a diving play last weekend but there has been no indication that it will keep him off the field to begin the minor-league season. He figures to spend most of the year at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Sent outright to Triple-A

    Renda cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

    Renda hopped up to the big leagues for a pair of stints late last season, but his defensive versatility and advanced eye at the plate weren't enough to overcome the .183 batting average he put up in 60 at-bats in Cincinnati, leading the Reds to cast him off the 40-man roster. Renda does possess a bit of speed and got on base at a .363 clip in the minors last season, but he projects as little more than organizational depth moving forward.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Recalled from Triple-A

    Renda was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Part of the return for Aroldis Chapman last offseason, Renda appeared in 16 games with the Reds last month, going 6-for-27 (.222 average) with one extra-base hit. The 25-year-old did get on base at a .363 clip in the minors this year but he will merely fill a bench role over the final few weeks of the 2016 season and there's not much to see here long term.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Optioned back to Louisville

    Renda was optioned back to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

    Renda spent just under a month with the big league club, but he'll return to Louisville as the Reds bring up catcher Raffy Lopez. The 25-year-old Renda appeared in 16 games for Cincinnati, hitting .222 with a pair of RBI in 27 at-bats. He'll likely return to the Reds when rosters expand next month.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Promoted from Triple-A Louisville

    Renda was promoted from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    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.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Improves slugging percentage

    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.

  • Reds' Tony Renda: Traded to Reds

    Renda was traded to the 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.
