    Starting to see positives from Hunter Renfroe

    He is getting more patient. In his last 8 games before today he has 6 walks and only 5 strikeouts. He is showing more patience and discipline at the plate. Today he has a walk and 3-run homer.

    He now has 2 walks today. So 8 walks in last 9 games counting today. If he keeps laying off the balls, they will start throwing him pitches he can handle.

    Renfroe with a two-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 10th to win it. He's been more patient lately, resulting in better pitches to hit.

    Same reason I follow Graveman, Frazier, Dak, Darius Slay, etc. They are ours.

    I know. And I'm going to keep updating him, good or bad. Random will just have to skip over the thread if he wants.

    Anybody seen Frazier this year? He's rehabbing right now, but he's hit .317/.379/.433 in the majors this year. Oddly, his defense has been pretty rough, but he's showing some pop and he's maintained his offense now through about a 1/2 season's worth of games at the MLB level.

    Graveman has pitched well. He has an ERA of 3.95 in 7 starts. He had one bad outing. Take that bad start away and he has a 2.87 ERA in the other 6 starts.

    Mitch Moreland has cooled off. Batted .273 in April and only .214 in May. He reached as high as .358 on April 18. Currently sitting around .254 for the season with 2 homers and 15 doubles.

    The thing about Frazier's defense is that it doesn't have to be great, because he is so versatile. He can play about 6 positions in the field if he has to. He is like a swiss-army knife.

    In Pittsburgh he has played CF, RF, LF, 2B, 3B, and SS. He has also been a DH. He has started, pinch-hit, pinch-run, and been a defensive substitute.

    He actually just got reactivated last Thursday. He's playing as a super-utility guy moving between 2B and OF regularly.

    Renfroe goes 1-4 with a double on May 16. Frazier bats lead off for Pirates and goes 2-5.

    Moreland and Renfroe both have homers today. Frazier goes 3-5 with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored.

    I would trade Swanson for Frazier right now and let Albies play short. Of course it won't happen but wishful thinking for a MSU / Braves fan.

    I was working in Pittsburgh this week and caught this game. I wore my State baseball shirt and talked to people around me about Frazier. After his first hit he got picked off first. A guy close by gave me a little ribbing about State teaching base running and I told him after watching our current team I had no comeback for him.
    The Pirates are not very good but the fans love what they have in Frazier.
