Pena was drafted by the Mets in 2006 but never reached the bigs. He hit the free agency market and signed with the Royals and spent 2 years in Kansas City. The Orioles bought his contract in 2015 and stayed in Baltimore for 2 seasons then the St Louis Cardinals signed him a free agent in 2017 and spent 1 season with the Cards until he was sent down to start the 2019 season. He's been assigned to the Rivercats to replace Stephen Vogt who was just recalled to San Francisco.
