2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Pena pitched at the Triple-A level last season for the first time. He did not give up many hits and struck out over a batter per inning, but he also posted a brutal 5.3 BB/9 rate. He suffered an elbow injury late in the campaign, and it remains to be seen when he will be ready to pitch again. Given his strikeout potential, but issues with control, Pena may come back as a reliever once he is healthy enough to resume pitching.

2013

Pena, a top-10 prospect for the Angels heading into last season, was traded to Milwaukee in the Zack Greinke deal. Pena struggled after the trade, posting a 7.24 ERA in seven starts, but he has averaged nearly a strikeout per inning in his six-year minor league career and possesses a big arm. Pena figures to open 2013 as a starter, but with a dominant fastball and slider when he is right, he could wind up as a power arm out of the bullpen if the Brewers choose shift him into that role.
