    • Orioles' Francisco Pena: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pena was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, the Baltimore Sun reports. The 26-year-old made nine starts behind the plate in his month with the big club, going 7-for-32 with one home run, three RBI, two walks and 11 strikeouts. With Caleb Joseph (groin) ready to resume his role as backup to Matt Wieters, Pena will head down and look to build on his unsightly .200/.241/.250 line with Norfolk.

    • Pena is likely to be optioned Friday when Caleb Joseph is activated from the DL, MASN Sports reports. The Orioles have been more comfortable with Matt Wieters starting consecutive days since Joseph went on the DL and that left Pena without many playing opportunities. He went 7-for-32 with just one extra-base hit, a home run. Pena had no home runs at Triple-A, which is a disappointment after hitting 27 home runs in 2014 and 13 home runs in 2015 at the same level.

    • Orioles' Francisco Pena: Gets start behind the dish
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pena is starting behind the dish and batting eighth against Toronto on Friday. Pena is receiving his fifth start at catcher, replacing Matt Wieters who's getting his first off-day in four games. In Pena's first two starts since his recall on May 31, he homered once and picked up three runs and two RBI. Over his last two starts, the 26-year-old's cooled off, going 1-for-8 with two strikeouts.

    • Pena went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs and a strikeout against the Red Sox on Thursday. Pena homered in his Orioles debut, and while his playing will be limited, it's certainly nice to see him produce when given the chance. He's known for his offensive ability, so he might see an uptick in his value while Caleb Joseph (groin) is on the DL.

    • Pena is in the lineup Thursday against Boston for the series finale. Pena will make his Orioles debut and bat ninth in the lineup after being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday after Caleb Joseph landed on the DL with a groin injury. He will catch for Ubaldo Jimenez in his first game in the majors since appearing with the Royals last season. While Joseph is on the disabled list, Pena will serve as Wieters temporary backup for the time being and is likely to see the field a few more times in the near future.
