  • 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: Moved off 40-man roster

    The Reds designated Renfroe for assignment Monday.

    Renfroe went just 5-for-39 at the plate after being claimed off waivers from the Angels in August and was deemed expendable with Stuart Fairchild (illness) returning from the COVID-19-related injured list. Though he reached the 20-homer plateau again in 2023, Renfroe has put up a modest .713 OPS in 140 games after exceeding an .800 OPS in both of the previous two seasons. The 31-year-old will be a free agent this offseason.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting out Thursday

    Renfroe is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Tigers.

    It's the fourth straight game that we've seen Refroe on the bench against a left-hander, although a minor hamstring injury could have played a part in that. Jake Fraley is in the designated hitter spot and Nick Martini is in right field.

  • 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.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Scratched with tight hamstring

    Renfroe was scratched from the lineup Tuesday versus the Mariners due to left hamstring tightness.

    Will Benson will move from left field to right field, with TJ Friedl taking over in left and Harrison Bader joining the Reds' lineup in center. Renfroe should be considered day-to-day for now.

  • Reds' Hunter Renfroe: Sitting Sunday

    Renfroe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    Renfroe made his Reds debut in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader and is 0-for-9 with an RBI and a strikeout so far. The veteran outfielder may not have an everyday spot in Cincinnati's lineup but should still see regular at-bats down the stretch after being claimed off waivers from the Angels.
