Hunter Renfroe last played for the Milwaukee Brewers on June 22nd. He was placed on the injured list with a calf strain. Renfroe is in his first year with the Brewers after spending last season with the Boston Red Sox. Renfroe's .789 OPS is down a bit from where he was last season, but the 119 OPS+ is just one point shy of the career high he put up with the San Diego Padres in 2018.
Chi Chi Gonzalez was claimed off of waivers from the Minnesota Twins. He pitched just seven innings for Minnesota across two separate starts. With Milwaukee, Gonzalez made four appearances, including two starts, in which he pitched a total of 11 innings. Gonzalez owns a 6.87 ERA on the year and hasn't found the stuff to stick at the Major League level.
Although Milwaukee needs pitching help with so much of the starting rotation unavailable, getting a bat back in the form of Renfroe is a nice boost to the lineup. Renfroe is batting 8th and playing centerfield tonight for the Brewers.
