DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Hunter Renfroe's season?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
I saw Renfroe in the Cal/Car league ASG. I really like the raw strength and power. the swing is short to the ball with a long finish giving him extreme post contact extension. His arm is a weapon in the outfield and in my limited look, he flashed an approach at the plate. According to Mike Ferrin, he is a very intelligent player and realizes what he needs to do to improve. Looks like a big leaguer to me. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)How hard is it for a batter to tone down his swing to sacrifice power for contact? Specifically thinking of a guy like Hunter Renfroe, who can hit the ball a mile but might do better trying to hit it a half-mile.
(Jeff from Bay Area)
Very hard. You have to work within the hitter and their approach to find a happy place. I love Renfroe. He loves to hit and trys to show it off all the time. Renfroe handles velocity very well. Saw plenty of him last summer.

Look at Joey Gallo. His adjustment history is awesome. Renfroe just needs to find a similar plan. (Ryan Parker)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Gabby Guerrero. Would you rate him higher than Michael Taylor or Hunter Renfroe in the long run? Is his ceiling a 6+ hit tool or is the shine partially due to who his uncle is? I want to pick him up but still skeptical
(Cactus Tony from Land of Confusion)
Vlad's nephew is ahead of Taylor but behind Refroe for me, making him a sandwich of sorts. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Renfroe a product of his environment?
(Biscuits from San Jose, ca )
I don't believe that his success is because of the hitter-friendly California League. Got to figure he's going to be in Double-A soon, because I'm not sure what he's learning in High-A besides that he strike out a lot and hit a lot of home runs. Eyewitness Report: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=103 (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Comparative draft question. The Padres pick at the same spot (13) as last year. Can they hope to get a player with as much potential as Hunter Renfroe at that spot?
(jeffreyarkin from Bay Area)
Yes. But I don't have any intel as to who they are targeting. I think Jim Callis said they'd like to get Touki Toussaint, whom has a ton of potential & a ton of risk. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some prospects you like significantly more/less than others on the BP prospect team?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Well, I cover the same area as Chris Rodriguez, so it isn't hard to find where we disagree. I think I'm higher on Corey Seager and Hunter Renfroe than he is. Some people aren't as high on Brady Aiken as I am. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better projection, Hunter Renfroe or Joey Gallo? They are the same type of player, right?
(Silverback38 from VA)
They aren't the same type of player. Renfroe doesn't have the elite raw power Gallo does, but it is plus to plus-plus. Gallo definitely has the higher ceiling as a result. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Renfroe, another guy who will never hit more than 15 HR in a full major league season for the Padres because of Petco?
(Patrick (Quasimodo) from Notre Dame)
No. He's got better raw power than anyone on that roster. (Ron Shah)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)What ETA and what kind of player do you think Hunter Renfroe can be?
(Chris from Phoenix)
The power is certainly legit. He's a really strong dude. It really depends if the hit tool lets the power maximize utility. You're seeing some inflated numbers in the CAL league right now, especially for a guy who hits balls with back spin. He needs to refine the approach quite a bit, and continue to look for pitches to drive, instead of swinging so freely. 2016 seems appropriate as an ETA for me. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)How quickly can Hunter Renfroe move through the Padres system?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
I'll be able to better answer this question after seeing him, but I'll predict he isn't in High-A for very long. He's another guy I cannot wait to see though. California League definitely has more talent this year than last. (Ronit Shah)
