RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Pena was called up the Royals on September first as one of Kansas City's roster-expansion callups. He came in as the third catcher behind Salvador Perez and Drew Butera. He earned the callup after posting a .251/.305/.430 slash line with 13 home runs over 95 games for the Storm Chasers. Pena appeared in eight games and had just one single in seven plate appearances. The 26-year-old catcher has the ability to hit for power and drive in runs, but there is a good chance that Pena will start the 2016 season in the minors after he was traded to Baltimore.

2015

Pena had a strong season from a power standpoint for Triple-A Omaha in 2014, belting 27 four-baggers, which led to an impressive .275 isolated power mark. For his efforts, he was rewarded with his first taste of big league action as one of Kansas City's September callups, but was ultimately buried behind Salvador Perez and Erik Kratz. A similar siuation faces Pena in the 2015 season, as he'll likely need an injury above him on the depth chart if he's going to see the big leagues prior to September, and even in that case, the 25-year-old would likely still be the backup. Barring a major roster shakeup, Pena is likely once again in line to serve as organizational depth at the Triple-A level this upcoming season.
