Drew Silva analyzes Hunter Renfroe's recent hot streak and discusses what the Milwaukee Brewers and fantasy managers should expect from him if healthy over the rest of the 2022 season.
- Brewers outfielder Hunter Renfrow has battled some different injuries this year, appearing in only 6 out of a possible 102 games. But he's delivered good results when he is active and in the starting lineup for Milwaukee, and those results were not good, but great in the month of July. Since his return from a left calf strain on July 12th to the calendar flipping over to August, Renfrow posted a 960 1OPS in 62 plate appearances, with six home runs and 6 RBIs in a span of 14 games.
He's just one home run away from reaching 20 home runs for the year despite all the time that he has missed, and this is all to be expected. For his career, the 30-year-old Slugger has averaged 37 homers and 92 RBIs for every 162 games played, ranking in the 87th percentile of all MLB hitters in Max exit velocity and 91st percentile in barrel rate. Renfrow could be headed for a huge fantasy finish as long as his health cooperates.
