Focus Area
Comments
Hitting ability:Renfroe is a natural hitter with a balanced approach, quick hands and an ability to use the whole field.
Power:He has loft power now that grades out as average. It should develop into better than that because of his hitting ability.
Running speed:He's an average runner, about 4.3 seconds down the line from the right side.
Base running:He's a very good baserunner, with excellent instincts. He's not a basestealer, but he can steal a base.
Arm strength:As a pitcher who throws 93 mph off the mound and a high school quarterback, he's got a plus arm in the infield.
Fielding:He's got above-average hands and terrific instincts.
Range:He's got average range, though his instincts help him play a tick above that.
Physical Description:Renfroe is an athletic infielder who has reminded some of David Wright, both in how he looks and how he plays.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Above-average offensive tools at the plate. Plus arm and defensive skills as well. Very athletic and instinctive player.
Weaknesses:He eventually may get too big and strong to stay at shortstop, but his bat should play fine at third.
Summary:Renfroe is an exciting all-around high school talent who can do a little of everything on the baseball field. A talented pitcher who throws 93 mph and the QB for one of the top high school football programs in the country, he's very athletic but has baseball smarts to go along with it. He should hit for average and power in the future, so even if he has to move off shortstop, he's got the bat to make sense at third. His dad played pro ball for nine years, so the bloodlines are there to boot, making him a very intriguing player who should go off the board pretty early.
