Reigning league MVP Renfroe back with Chihuahuas


EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) -- Padres slugger Hunter Renfroe is back with the Chihuahuas after being optioned by the parent club San Diego Padres, on Saturday morning.

Reminiscent of Ryan Schimpf's demotion, earlier this season, Renfroe has hit 20 home runs but needs to work on an abysmal .230 batting average.

OF Jabari Blash has been recalled by the Padres to fill Renfroe's roster spot; Blash is hitting .285 in AAA with 20 home runs.

The Chihuahuas are currently two games back from first place on Salt Lake City - El Paso is back home this coming Thursday against Sacramento.
