Hunter Renfroe called to tear up San Antonio

New, 5 comments

The Storm outfielder had been dominating for Lake Elsinore the entire 2014 season so far, so it was time to move him to the Missions. Big step, lots of pressure. But not for Hunter.

For the 2014 season the Mississippi native was annihilating the poor chaps in Class-A ball; hitting .295 with a .935 OPS. The 22 year-old left with 82 hits, 16 home runs, and 52 RBI's. Renfroe, who was only called up just the middle of last week, has already hit his first AA homerun in only his second game for the Missions.

At this rate Hunter is going to be moving up the ranks very quickly, and something like a call-up in September isn't too crazy to imagine. He's one of the only players in the Padres organization right now that you'll find the description of a "good hitter" under his name.

His Lake Elsinore counterparts Alberth Martinez and Luis Domoromo are currently hitting .272 and .282, respectively; TinCapper Mallex Smith was called up to fill in Renfroe's shoes.
