Hunter Renfroe wasted no time in acclimating himself to Major League Baseball pitching. The former El Paso Chihuahuas outfielder singled in his first at bat last night against San Francisco Giants starter Jeff Samardzija and later singled again. The Giants won the game 2-1, but Renfroe’s two hits were one of the highlights for the Padres.

Last night, Padres manager Andy Green started Renfroe, Carlos Asuaje, Austin Hedges, and Manny Margot. All four players spent the season with the El Paso Chihuahuas and the “Core Four” nicknamed by El Paso Times editor Bob Moore were a big part of the team’s Pacific Coast League title run. Alex Dickerson and Ryan Schimpf were also in the San Diego starting lineup last night, and they both spent part of the 2016 season with the Chihuahuas.

Green said that he will give all of his late season call-ups an opportunity to play at the Major League level. He wants to give Padres fans an opportunity to watch the future of his club showcase their skills over the final 9 days of the regular season.

MLB.com just lowered the price of MLBTV to $3.99 for the final week and a half of the regular season. It is a great way for fans to follow their former Chihuahuas as they finish the 2016 with San Diego.
