BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 27% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres outfielder Hunter Renfroe has been scorching hot over the last 14 days, posting a 1.097 OPS, 10 RBI, and 11 runs scored. Renfroe is also 8-for-20 over the last week, hitting a home run and scoring five runs while posting a 1.205 OPS. He is limited against right-handed pitchers, as he has a .234 OBP in RvR matchups, but is 15-for-47 with three home runs and four doubles against left-handed pitchers this season. Renfroe needs to cut down on strikeouts, 27% this season, but he has nine home runs this season and his power streak should be real. His line drive percentage is up to 18.1% this season, and his hard hit ball percentage is up to 35.4%, so betting on Renfroe's hot streak to continue would be a safe bet.

Renfroe is part of a Padres' team that is full of fantasy sleepers and Renfroe could be the one with the biggest upside. He had 30 home runs and 105 RBI for Triple-A El Paso last season and his 1.189 OPS in 11 games for the Padres last season fueled the fire of his hype. While his batting average is low this season, you can bet on Renfroe's power and should be owned in all NL-only leagues.
