Athletics' Renato Nunez: Smacks first big-league homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

Nunez's seventh-inning blast put the Athletics on the board for the first time of the evening and represented the 23-year-old first big-league home run. The rookie had a chance to play the hero in the eighth inning with the bases juiced and the Athletics down two, but he struck out to end the threat. Nunez could pick up another start or two in the Athletics' final two games as the team looks to see what it has in the slugging third baseman, who amassed 32 home runs in the Pacific Coast League prior to being called up earlier this month.

Athletics' Renato Nunez: Hits safely for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-4 in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Mariners.

The rookie had gotten his first big-league hit of 2017 in Monday's loss and then drew the start at designated hitter Tuesday. Nunez is coming off a season at Triple-A Nashville where he slugged a career-best 32 home runs and the Athletics had reportedly been anxious to see what he could do against major-league arms in September. However, factoring in Tuesday's contest, Nunez has seen just 11 plate appearances in six games during the month. He may be in line for additional starts over Oakland's remaining games.

Athletics' Renato Nunez: Recalled from Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

Nunez finished tied for second in the Pacific Coast League in homers with 32 and improved his walk rate to 8.8 percent, his highest mark yet with a full-season affiliate. However, he finished the season with a 26.5 percent strikeout rate and 109 wRC+, which was only a little better than league average in the PCL. The A's are embracing a youth movement, but Nunez probably won't be afforded the same amount of playing time as the likes of Matt Olson and Matt Chapman with Ryon Healy warranting most of the starts at designated hitter.

Athletics' Renato Nunez: Tuesday promotion expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is expected to be one of several players called up from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

The Sounds season will conclude Monday, clearing the path for Nunez to join the big-league club Tuesday. The 23-year-old, who's smacked a career-best 32 home runs for Triple-A Nashville this season, will likely see the majority of his playing time at designated hitter. He'll try to improve on the .133 average he compiled in his 15-plate-appearance cup of coffee with the Athletics last season, a stint in which he notched just a pair of singles and one RBI.

Athletics' Renato Nunez: Promotion appears imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is one of the players at Triple-A Nashville that's likely to be called up in September, Alex Simon of MLB.com reports. "We do need to find out about Nunez," said manager Bob Melvin. "His bat, we've seen it in Spring Training, and everybody that you talk to says his bat will play at the big league level. We have to give him some at-bats to see."

The slugger has smacked a career-high 32 home runs for the Sounds this season as part of a .253/.314/.529 line over 119 games. Nunez has compiled a whopping 59 extra-base hits overall as well, and he hit .333 with a double, two round trippers and four RBI in 10 games with the Athletics during spring training. The 23-year-old hit can play third base and also serve as a designated hitter, so the A's should be able to afford him a solid amount of playing time during his big-league stint.
