EUGENE, Ore. (WCBI) —It didn’t take long for the former MSU Diamond Dog to move up.
First-round pick Hunter Renfroe will play his last game with the Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League on Thursday night and will be promoted on Saturday.
Renfroe will be moving to the Fort Wayne TinCaps of the Single-A Midwest League in Indiana.
The TinCaps currently sit in 3rd place in the Eastern Division of the Midwest League at (60-54) overall but have struggled in the second half of the season.
In his 23 games with the Emeralds, Renfroe has hit .302 with four home runs and 16 RBIs.
Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the MLB Draft, was also named to the Northwest League All-Star Game, where he helped his South team to victory with the game-winning RBI single in the 9th.
