The Hunter Renfroe experiment didn't work at all for either side

Hunter Renfroe was one of, if not the biggest addition the team made last offseason. He was acquired in a trade with the Brewers and was expected to slide in perfectly in the middle of the Angels order behind Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, and Anthony Rendon.

Renfroe got off to a good start in April, but really cooled down as the season progressed. He was one of very few Angels who was able to stay healthy, but after May 1 he contributed very little offensively.

Renfroe was one of the most consistent power hitters in the game for a while, but his power production took a step back with the Halos. He was miserable with runners in scoring position, and only really seemed to be productive in games that had a lopsided score.

The Angels could use a guy like Renfroe to either play right field against lefties in a platoon with Mickey Moniak, and/or DH a lot if Shohei Ohtani leaves. A guy with Renfroe's track record would actually be a solid fit if he was willing to accept a slightly reduced role. Unfortunately, his major struggles with the Angels should turn the team away from even giving him a call. It simply wasn't the right fit.
