Scouting Report
: Solid frame with a well filled-out lower body. Hits from an open stance that closes on pitch approach. Stance appears to be a bit too open and may close down some as he progresses. Renfroe was said to have had an advanced approach in high school, but his pitch recognition and pitch selection skills are being challenged by pro pitching in the early going. Hesitates to attack balls and chases off-speed stuff. Average present power with potential to add more down the line as he learns the strike zone and improves on count management. Pull happy. Has the ability to hit gap-to-gap with power as he settles in. Good bat speed with lift in his swing path, but can be long through the zone. Speed is just average and won't be a factor as he continues to mature physically. Still learning the ins-and-outs of playing third base, as he was a shortstop in high school. Potential to be a solid-average defender. Good first step. Plus arm. Renfroe is in the early stages of building his offensive approach and refining his skills. Progress may be slow in the beginning of his career, but the potential is there to be a solid hitter with above-average power. Transititioned to pitching in the later summer of 2013 and retired soon therafter.
