Tampa Bay Rays designate outfielder Hunter Renfroe to clear roster room

he Tampa Bay Rays have designated outfielder Hunter Renfroe for assignment, helping clear room on the 40-man roster for three young prospects who were not part of the team’s run to the World Series.

Renfroe, 28, appeared in 42 games with 34 starts during the pandemic-shortened regular season and hit the first grand slam in Rays postseason history during the team’s wild-card playoff sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Renfroe batted .156 with eight homers and 22 RBIs in his first season with Tampa Bay. He started six of 12 games he played in the postseason, batting .174 with two homers and seven RBIs.

Well things really went downhill for him after that touchdown catch to beat Alabama.

Pretty much a pure platoon guy. 85 OPS+ vs. RHP, 135 vs LHP.

His career Rfield numbers -- 0, 3, 23, -1. That +23 came in fewer than 1000 innings too. (TZ also gave him a big +11 that year so likely some truth to it.)

Well things really went downhill for him after that touchdown catch to beat Alabama.

I was very confused when I heard RenfroW's name being called during a Raider's game a couple weeks ago. How had I missed that he was a 2-sport pro?

Hunter Renfrow was also a top outfield prospect, rated 6th best in South Carolina his senior year.
