Big Train (2011,2012) Hunter Renfroe Promoted

Bethesda Big Train News UpdatesJune 18, 2014

Hunter Renfroe Promoted 
L-R: Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-'12), Becky Crowley (Host Family), Wes Rea (BT '14) seen at last night's California League ASG.
 
Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-12) is taking advantage of every opportunity in the San Diego Padres farm system after being drafted 13th overall back in 2012. Following his start in the California League/Carolina League All-Star game in Wilmington, DE on Tuesday, Renfroe was promoted from Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore to Double-A San Antonio.
 
The  No. 5 prospect in the Padres' system, according to MLB.com, was leading the California League in home runs with 16, hit 52 RBIs and had a solid .295 batting-average. 
 
Renfroe had developed into one of the best power hitters in the California League and his continued improvement over the past two seasons proved that this promotion was definitely well deserved, according to Padres' vice president of player development Randy Smith in a recent article on MLB.com.
 
Smith said, "The thing that I was very pleased with is he cut down on the strikeouts, the average came up and he carried that into June".  
 
With his promotion to the San Antonio Missions of the Double-A Texas League, Renfroe will have another opportunity to prove himself to better overall competition.  
 
We are all very excited to see how he plays in the Texas League and hope to see him in a Major League uniform in the very near future.
