The Padres best position player this year: Hunter Renfroe

The 27 year old is playing like a star

MLB: San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Kudos to Max Goldstein for putting out this article on Hunter Renfroe. Always great analysis coming from max’s sporting studio. Just how good has Renfroe been? He’s 1st on the team in many offensive categories, and he’s hit the most home runs in the Majors since April 26th.

Oh, have we mentioned he has an absolute laser for an arm? It’s been fun watching him develop into a dynamic player. To think he’s just entering his prime...

“After opening the 2019 campaign with an undesirable .210/.269/.500 batting line with four home runs in his first 67 trips to the plate, Hunter Renfroe finds himself in the midst of a torrid run. Dating back to April 26th, Renfroe has hit .268/.326/.675, also launching 19 home runs (which is the most in baseball over that time). His staggering .403 ISO is second to only Charlie Blackmon (during that time frame). Here’s where Renfroe ranks amongst his teammates on the year:

  • HR: 23 (1st)
  • ISO: .374 (1st)
  • SLG: .626 (1st)
  • wRC+: 137 (2nd to only Fernando Tatis Jr.)
  • fWAR: 2.1 (1st)”
