The Call-Up: A Triplet of Padres


Christopher Crawford, Mauricio Rubio and Greg Wellemeyer

A breakdown of Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, and Carlos Asuaje.

The Situation: With El Paso wrapping up a championship season, the Padres have called up three of their top prospects to get a taste of the majors.

Hunter Renfroe
Scouting Report: Renfroe was the Padres first-round pick out of Mississippi State in 2013, and though there have been some peaks and valleys, for the most part he's looked the part of one of the best corner outfield prospects in baseball. The weakest tool at his disposal is likely the hit: he's an aggressive hitter with some length to his swing, and you can mark him down for some 100-plus strikeout seasons if he's a regular. That being said, he does have quality bat speed, and he will go the other way, so a 50—or possibly even a tick above—grade isn't out of the question. There's no question about his power, as there's natural loft in his right-handed stroke, and he is strong enough to take the ball out to any part of the park. Even in Petco Park, 25-30 homer seasons are not out of the realm of possibility, if he sees enough quality pitches to allow that to happen.

View from the turtle during batting practice at this year's MLB Futures Game during All Star Weekend.

The Baseball Prospectus prospect team is constantly on the road, getting eyes on the top talent throughout baseball -- from the amateur ranks up through the majors. Moving forward I'll be working to bring you inside my travels (hopefully with contributions from others on the prospect team), including pictures and video. There will be a lot of baseball and some broader travel stuff if I think you might find it interesting.
