The San Diego Padres opened up the wallet really big to make the signing of Eric Hosmer possible, making a deal with the player for $140 million and 8 years. But with that huge contract, comes some changes to the Padres' roster, as probably the team's best player the last few seasons, Will Myers, will be moved from the first base to the outfield.

 

But also, another player will be affected by the arrival of the former Kansas City player, as the outfielder, Hunter Renfroe probably will be on the move, as reported by Jon Morosi of MLB.com. According to him, the Atlanta Braves are the main team interested in the young player.

 

With Myers moving to the left field, and the other two positions already been taken by Manuel Margot and José Pirela, looks like Renfroe has no place in the team of California, making Atlanta being the logical move for both parts.

 

The 26-year-old made his MLB debut during 2016 season with the Padres and holds a career average of .242 with 116 hits, 30 HR's and 72 RBI's
