Mississippi State Bulldog Hunter Renfroe Signs with San Diego Padres

USA TODAY Sports

After a wild post-season ride that ended with Mississippi State in the championship series of the College World Series, Hunter Renfroe has signed with the San Diego Padres.

Former Mississippi State outfielder and first round draft pick Hunter Refroe inked a deal worth $2.678M with the San Diego Padres Tuesday according to multiple reports. The dollar value equals the slot value for the 13th overall draft pick.

After officially becoming a Padre, Renfroe had the privilege of throwing out the first pitch at Petco Park after taking some batting practice, and he discussed his strategy with Bulldog first baseman Wes Rea.

Renfroe is expected to report to Eugene later today, where he will play with the Emeralds in the Northwest League, a short-season league.

Padres general manager Josh Byrnes told MLB.com the organization would have no qualms about moving Renfroe to Class A Fort Wayne if the short season goes well.

Renfroe finished his last season in Starkville with a .345 batting average, 15 home runs and 65 RBIs in 66 games.
