Player Outlook
Hunter Renfroe was traded from the Brewers to the Angels last offseason, marking his fifth different team over the last five Opening Days. He was on the move again in late August, going to the Reds via waivers. In between the two stops, the 32-year-old had his least productive season outside of the shortened 2020 campaign, finishing with a .713 OPS, 91 OPS+ and 20 home runs. The quality of contact metrics support the dip in production, as Renfroe's 6.1 percent barrel rate was easily a career low and his 88.3 mph average exit velocity and 39.1 percent hard-hit rate were his lowest since his rookie season. His defensive metrics also fell off for the second year in a row. Renfroe should get another shot at regular at-bats in 2024 after landing with Kansas City, and while his skill set is limited, he seems like a decent bet to rebound as a solid power source.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting Saturday

    Renfroe is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Athletics. Renfroe will get a day off after he went 2-for-10 with a run scored while starting the team's last three contests. Adam Frazier enters the lineup at second base after some shuffling, batting eighth against Oakland.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Day off Friday

    Renfroe isn't in the Royals' lineup for Friday's game against the Angels. Renfroe will get a chance to regroup Friday after going 0-for-10 across his last three games. Dairon Blanco will cover right field instead and bat eighth.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Taking seat Sunday

    Renfroe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers. Renfroe started the first two games of the series and will head to the bench for the finale after he went 2-for-7 with a homer, a walk and three RBI. Adam Frazier will start in right field and bat eighth Sunday.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Homers in Friday's win

    Renfroe went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rangers. Renfroe has struggled to get his bat going -- he's 3-for-27 (.111) over his last 10 games. The outfielder has started to lose playing time to Adam Frazier, who was squeezed out of a full-time role at second base when Michael Massey returned from a back injury. Renfroe is slashing a poor .155/.228/.298 with three homers, 11 RBI, eight runs scored and three doubles over 92 plate appearances, so he'll need to put together better performances to continue playing regularly.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Back on bench Wednesday

    Renfroe is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays. Renfroe looked to be on the outs for an everyday role when he was held out of the lineup for consecutive games last Thursday and Friday, but he started in each of the past four games. However, Renfroe went just 1-for-12 with two walks in those contests, and he now finds himself back on the bench while his season-long slash line now sits at .150/.218/.263. Adam Frazier will get the nod in right field Wednesday, and manager Matt Quartaro could be inclined to lean on a timeshare between Frazier and Renfroe at that spot in the lineup until one player starts to heat up at the plate.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting again Friday

    Renfroe is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers. Renfoe isn't starting for the second straight game and for the third time in Kansas City's past four contests. The 32-year-old has a .149/.208/.284 slash line in 72 plate appearances and appears to be losing his grip on an everyday role. Adam Frazier will receive a start in right field Friday.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Moves to bench Thursday

    Renfroe is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays. Renfroe will sit for the second time in three days while Kansas City opens up room in the outfield for Adam Frazier, who will occupy left field while MJ Melendez shifts over to right. Through 72 plate appearances this season, Renfroe is slashing just .149/.208/.284 with two home runs and 10 RBI. He could be in danger of fading into a part-time role in the Kansas City outfield.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Steps out of lineup

    Renfroe is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. Renfroe is in the midst of a 2-for-21 slump and will sit Tuesday after starting the previous six games. Dairon Blanco will take over in right field and bat seventh.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Smacks homer Wednesday

    Renfroe went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 4-2 win over the White Sox in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader. Renfroe went 0-for-3 with one RBI in the nightcap as well. The veteran outfielder is still holding onto a starting role in right field, but he's struggling at the plate in 2024. Renfroe is batting .176 with two homers, eight RBI, six runs scored and two doubles over 56 plate appearances. Nelson Velazquez has occasionally moved from designated hitter to right when Renfroe rests, and Adam Frazier could be an option there as well once Michael Massey (back) is activated from the injured list.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Getting breather Thursday

    Renfroe is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Astros. Renfroe has a modest six-game hitting streak going but will take a seat in the series finale as the Astros send right-hander Hunter Brown to the rubber. MJ Melendez will slide over to right field and Nelson Velazquez will get a start in left.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Finds power in win

    Renfroe went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the White Sox. Renfroe got the scoring going for the Royals with a fifth-inning home run off Garrett Crochet but was otherwise held quiet. He's now recorded a hit in four straight games but Sunday's blast were his first two RBI and his first hit for extra bases as he's gotten off to a very slow start to the year.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Not starting Saturday

    Renfroe is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox. Renfroe has struggled at the plate to begin the season, going 3-for-26 with one run, one walk and nine strikeouts. Garrett Hampson will get the start in left field Saturday, while MJ Melendez will move to right field for Renfroe.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Making spring debut

    Renfroe (back) is batting fifth as the designated hitter in Friday's spring game against the Athletics. The veteran slugger has been held out of spring games thus far due to lower-back tightness, but he'll join the lineup for Friday's contest. Renfroe struggled to a .713 OPS last season after topping .800 the previous two seasons, and he'll be a key lineup piece for the Royals after signing a two-year, $13 million deal.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Returning soon from back injury

    Renfroe has been held out of the Royals' Cactus League games thus far due to lower-back tightness but is expected to play Wednesday against the Mariners, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Renfroe is participating in the Royals' workout Monday and looks to be nearly over the hump with his minor back issue. The veteran outfielder signed a two-year deal with Kansas City this offseason and is expected to be the club's everyday right fielder, with some starts at designated hitter also likely mixed in.

  • Royals' Hunter Renfroe: Added to Royals' outfield

    Renfroe is finalizing a two-year, $13 million contract with the Royals, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The deal includes an opt out after the first year, effectively making it a one-year contract with a player option. Renfroe battled through a disappointing 2023 campaign, slashing .233/.297/.416 with 20 home runs over 140 games between the Angels and Reds. The 31-year-old has been a consistent power source throughout his career, though, and should provide Kansas City's lineup with a little more thump.

  • Hunter Renfroe: Dropped by Cincy

    The Reds released Renfroe on Thursday. After slashing just .128/.227/.205 across 44 plate appearances with Cincinnati, Renfroe was DFA'd by the team Monday and will now enter the open market. He wouldn't be eligible for the postseason if he were to sign elsewhere, so it's possible Renfroe remains without a team through the end of the year.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Hits first homer with Reds

    Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's loss against the Cardinals. Renfroe tallied his first Reds home run with a 378-foot shot off Drew Rom in the third inning. Starts have been sporadic for the 31-year-old in the crowded Cincinnati outfield -- since he was acquired from the Angels on Sept. 1, Renfroe has started just four of eight games, in part due to a mild hamstring issue.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Returns to lineup Friday

    Renfroe (hamstring) is back in the lineup Friday against the Cardinals. Renfroe will serve as the Reds' designated hitter and bat third versus the Cardinals and left-hander Drew Rom after being limited to pinch-hitting duties in Cincinnati's previous series against the Mariners. The 31-year-old has gone 2-for-13 with two singles in five games since being claimed off waivers from the Angels on Aug. 31.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Remains out of lineup

    Renfroe (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Mariners. Renfroe drew a walk as a pinch hitter in the Reds' win over the Mariners on Tuesday, but he's not quite a full-go due to lingering left hamstring tightness. Nick Martini, TJ Friedl and Will Benson will start across the outfield Wednesday as Jake Fraley fills the DH role.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Enters as pinch hitter

    Renfroe (hamstring) entered as a pinch hitter and walked in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Mariners. Renfroe was a late scratch for the Reds but managed to give the team a plate appearance. After walking in the sixth inning, Renfroe was replaced by pinch runner Stuart Fairchild.
