RotoWire News: Renda cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday. (12/5/2016)
Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: A former second-round pick of the Nationals, Renda made his way to the Reds organization in 2016 and split the majority of the year between Double-A and Triple-A. He also made his MLB debut in August but spent the bulk of his time coming off the bench as a pinch hitter - a role that he seems well-suited for because he rarely strikes out and puts the ball in play a lot. Overall, he didn’t have a great showing with the bat (.183 average) and he was out-righted off the 40-man roster in December. Renda, 25, has some positional value. He played second base, third base and both corner outfield spots during his first taste of the majors. He’ll likely enter 2017 as a depth piece and will try to convince the organization that he’s still a potentially-valuable piece coming off the bench for the Reds. A trade of veteran second baseman Brandon Phillips will help his chances but there really isn’t much fantasy relevance here. (Marc Hulet)

The Quick Opinion: Renda’s future career — if he makes it back to the majors — is likely as a utility player and pinch hitter. He’ll probably spend most of the season in Triple-A although the trade of second baseman Brandon Phillips could open up a spot on the 25-man roster.
