Renda won Pacific-10 Conference player of the year honors as a sophomore and led California to an unlikely College World Series trip, batting .332/.366/.434. While the Bears slipped on the mound in 2012, Renda has been even better, batting .370/.453/.526 with a career-best five home runs. He's undersized at 5-foot-8 and 173 pounds, but scouts love his ability to hit and his grinder mentality. He swings hard and shows above-average bat speed, but stays in control of the bat head and shows a compact, line drive stroke. He has a good approach at the plate and projects to hit for solid average with power to the gaps. The knock on Renda concerns his defense at second base. He's not flashy and has just modest range, though he makes the plays he's supposed to make and can turn the double play. Renda was a 42nd-round pick out of high school by the Dodgers and figures to go about 40 rounds higher now.
