SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres have agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Hunter Renfroe, giving the Mississippi State junior taken 13th overall a $2,678,000 signing bonus.
A 6-foot-2, 216-pound outfielder, Renfroe hit .345 with 16 home runs and 65 RBIs in 65 games for the Bulldogs, who lost to UCLA in the finals of the College World Series.
He took batting practice Tuesday at Petco Park before the Padres' game against the Colorado Rockies and will report Wednesday to Class-A Eugene, the Padres' short-season affiliate in the Northwest League.
Padres director of scouting Billy Gasparino sees Renfroe as a five-tool player whose success in college makes him ``a unique player.''
