Renfroe is not in the lineup Tuesday against Oakland.
Renfroe sits after starting three in a row and seven of the last eight. Since coming off the disabled list May 28, he's hitting .273/.355/.436 in 18 games. Franmil Reyes starts in right field Tuesday.
Renfroe will start in right field and bat cleanup Sunday against the Braves.
With Renfroe making his 11th start in 13 games Sunday, it appears he has moved ahead of Franmil Reyes -- who has started eight times over that same span -- on the depth chart in right field. The 26-year-old has maintained a .850 OPS since returning from the disabled list in late May and should be in store for a full-time role so long as he continues to hold his own against right-handed pitching. After righties limited him to a .202/.244/.393 batting line (66 wRC+) in 2017, Renfroe has upped his slash line to .239/.301/.448 (107 wRC+) in those matchups this season.
Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a walk, two runs and two RBI in Friday's win over the Braves.
Renfroe put the Padres in the lead with a two-run single in the seventh, coming around to score on a Freddy Galvis home run. Renfroe had gone hitless over his last three games, so Friday's two-hit night was a welcome sight. Since coming off the disabled list, the 26-year-old has one home run, 10 RBI and nine runs in 16 games. Last year Renfroe hit .231 with 26 home runs and 58 RBI in 122 games.
Renfroe will start in right field and hit cleanup Sunday against the Marlins.
Despite only an ugly .222/.264/.435 (84 wRC+) career line against right-handers, Renfroe will get the starting nod over Franmil Reyes in the series finale against Marlins righty Jose Urena. It's the third time in four games against right-handed pitching that Renfroe has been included in the lineup, a sign that manager Andy Green is willing to let the 26-year-old prove he's deserving of a full-time role. Renfroe didn't make much of an impact in those prior two matchups against righties, going a combined 2-for-9 with a double in those contests.
Renfroe didn't start this contest, but he made his presence felt in his only at-bat, launching a mammoth grand slam in pinch-hit duties in the fifth inning off Reds starter Luis Castillo. He only has 64 at-bats on the year after spending time on the disabled list with an elbow injury, but the numbers over that small sample size look good, as he's slashing .266/.342/.531. With Renfroe, the issue is always his splits, as the 26-year-old has a 1.027 career OPS against left-handed pitching that falls all the way to .689 against righties, making him one of the more matchup-dependent hitters out there until he shows sustained signs of evening out those numbers.
