RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
