Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Not likely to be at early workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe, who has been diligently working out at his home in Mississippi while spring training remains suspended, isn't likely to join the Rays immediately for the limited workouts that will begin at Tropicana Field on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Renfroe has a full workout facility at his home, one that actually provides him access to a much more comprehensive array of equipment than some of his teammates will have at Tropicana Field. Because amenities such as the weight room and batting cages won't be immediately available due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions, Renfroe is one of the players the Rays have encouraged to stay put until and when there is more of an indication the owners and players' union are close to an agreement on the conditions for an abbreviated 2020 season.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Maintaining robust workout regimen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe has a full workout facility in his Mississippi home that is allowing him to maintain a comprehensive workout regimen during the current shutdown, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Topkin reports the outfielder recently joined 95.3 WDAE-FM for an interview and confirmed his personal equipment includes a batting cage with a pitching machine, weights, a Peloton bike and a treadmill. That array of fitness tools offers Renfroe a chance to keep every aspect of his training up and running while spring training remains suspended. The extra batting practice may come in particularly handy for the slugger, who hit just .200 across 12 Grapefruit League contests.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Constant presence against southpaws
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe, who hit .200 (6-for-30) across 12 Grapefruit League games before spring training was suspended, projects to be in the regular lineup against left-handed starters this season, John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The slugging outfielder was generally sluggish at the plate this spring, but he's traditionally been successful versus left-handed pitching. Renfroe owns a career .269/.345/.579 slash line and .380 wOBA across 444 plate appearances versus southpaws, compared to a .221/.271/.459 line and .306 wOBA against righties. The disparity doesn't mean Renfroe won't log any at-bats versus right-handed pitching as well, but a spot in the lineup whenever a lefty is on the hill appears particularly secure.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Belts first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a Grapefruit League loss to the Phillies on Thursday. He finished spring training hitting .200 (6-for-30), one double, Thursday's home run, three RBI, a walk and three runs.

The slugging outfielder took Jake Arrieta deep to start the fourth inning. Renfroe began camp at full health after enduring multiple injuries last season, and even though he hasn't quite been able to parlay that into much success at the plate in exhibition play, he'll carry robust expectations heading into the delayed 2020 regular season.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Stands out in BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (foot) cleared the fence nearly a dozen times during Tuesday's batting practice, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The feat is notable for those looking for signs of how much pop a healthy Renfroe might be capable of providing this season. The slugging outfielder saw multiple lower-leg injuries rob him of a substantial amount of power in the second half of last season, but early indications are Renfroe is in as good a shape as he claimed to be coming into camp.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Feels 100 percent heading into camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (foot) says he feels fully recovered from the foot and ankle issues that have plagued him since last season, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. "Everything is good, everything is fixed," Renfroe said. "I was going to the physical therapist and stuff like that and strengthening the ankle and getting it back to 100 percent, and now it feels like I never even had surgery, so that's great."

The slugger, who was obtained in a December trade with the Padres that saw Tommy Pham head west, underwent three procedures over the last several months to address his myriad of lower-leg issues. Renfroe dealt with both a high-ankle sprain and foot problems throughout 2019, with the issues exacerbating during the second half of the season after a strong start to the campaign. The 28-year-old still finished with a career-high 33 home runs, but 27 of those came prior to the All-Star break. Considering the drain on his power the injuries clearly had, it's certainly encouraging to hear Tampa's projected starting right fielder appears back to full health.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Reaches deal without arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (foot) and the Rays avoided arbitration with a one-year, $3.3 million deal Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Renfroe was picked up from the Padres in a December trade which sent Tommy Pham the opposite way. He hit a lopsided .216/.298/.489 with 33 homers in 140 games last season and should factor into the mix in the outfield corners in 2020, though the acquisitions of Yoshi Tsutsugo and Jose Martinez, who figure to spend time in the corners when not serving as the designated hitter, could cut into his at-bats. Renfroe underwent foot surgery in late September but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

Rays' Hunter Renfroe: Sent to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (foot) was traded from San Diego to Tampa Bay along with Xavier Edwards in exchange for Tommy Pham on Thursday night, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Prospect Jake Cronenworth was later reported to be included with Pham in the move to the Padres.

Renfroe underwent foot surgery at the end of September, but he's expected to be ready to roll for spring training. He slashed .216/.298/.489 with 33 home runs and 64 home runs over 140 contests a season ago, showing he's a serious power threat at the dish. He could see time in both right and left field with Tampa Bay.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Having foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe is set to have minor foot surgery to remove a bone spur from the top of his right foot, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Renfroe's surgery is expected to keep him out for about the first week of the team's offseason workout program, but the left fielder should be a full go after that period. It's uncertain how long Renfroe has been dealing with the injury. The 27-year-old dealt with other issues to his elbow and ankle during the season but was able to gut this foot injury out during the 2019 campaign. Renfroe will look to head into next season healthy for a turnaround year with a young Padres team.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting out finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe is not in Sunday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Josh Naylor gets the start in right field and will hit sixth. Renfroe hit .083 with two home runs and 17 strikeouts in 15 games this month.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Arizona.

Renfroe will catch a breather after taking the collar in Thursday's series finale against the Dodgers (0-for-3). Josh Naylor gets the call in right field and is set to hit fifth.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe is not starting Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Renfroe is just 2-for-17 (.118) -- albeit with a pair of home runs -- in six games since returning from an ankle injury earlier in the month. He'll give way to Josh Naylor in right field in this one.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Crushes homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to Arizona.

Renfroe launched a 421-foot shot to center field to put the Padres on the board in the fifth inning. The long ball was his second in 10 at-bats since returning from an ankle injury Sept. 17. Renfroe is unlikely to reach the 40-homer mark that once seemed inevitable after he went deep 27 times before the All-Star break, but he has nonetheless solidified his role as a power bat with a career-high 33 round trippers this season.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Tuesday's loss to Milwaukee.

Renfroe made his return to the field after missing nine games with a sprained right ankle and plated the Padres' lone rune in the contest with a solo shot to left field in the seventh inning. The round tripper was his first in his last 47 at-bats dating back to Aug. 10. The 27-year-old leads San Diego with 32 homers this season but has hit only five long balls while batting .172 since the All-Star break.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) is starting in right field and hitting fifth Tuesday against Milwaukee.

Renfroe had been held out of the starting lineup since Sept. 7 due to a right ankle sprain, but he's returned to full strength and draws the start in the second game of the series. He'd gotten off to a rough start to September prior to suffering the injury, going 1-for-11 with two walks and six strikeouts over five games.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Expected to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) is expected to be in the starting lineup against the Brewers on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

Renfroe participated in batting practice and spent time running the bases and shagging flyballs Monday in preparation for his return. He has been available to pinch hit over the last three games but is expected to instead make his return in a starting role Tuesday. Renfroe has been out since Sept. 7 while nursing a sprained right ankle.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Takes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) took batting practice Saturday for the first time since Sept. 8, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Of further significance, Renfroe was in the on-deck circle Saturday when Luis Urias grounded into a game-ending double play. Although he didn't get into Sunday's game, Renfroe's return appears imminent. He is likely to play at some point during the team's four-game series in Milwaukee that begins Monday.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Won't return this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) will not play this weekend but is nearing batting practice and could return next week, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Renfroe has indicated that his ankle is improving and suggested that he may be ready to return on San Diego's current road trip. Although he won't play in Colorado this weekend, the door remains open for Renfroe to see action during the Padres' four-game series in Milwaukee beginning Monday. The 27-year-old has not played since Sept. 7.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Expects return on next road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) indicated Thursday that he should be ready to play during the Padres' upcoming road trip, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Renfroe suggested that his sprained right ankle is improving, thus making possible a return on the team's upcoming seven-game road trip that begins Friday in Colorado. While Renfroe slugged 27 homers before the All-Star break, multiple ailments have limited him to four in the second half and none in his last 59 at-bats. The 27-year-old last started Sept. 4 and has not played since Sept. 7.

Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Out 'for a little while'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Renfroe (ankle) is expected to remain out of action "for a little while," according to Dennis Lin of The Athletic.

Renfroe has been nursing a variety of injuries since the All-Star break, including a sore elbow and a bum right ankle. He's hit .169/.260/.291 with four homers and a 37 percent strikeout rate since the intermission. The outfielder last played Sept. 7, and it sounds like manager Andy Green will give him more time to get right, with the hope that Renfroe can return for the final 10 days or so and close out the season on a more positive note.
