Royals' Brayan Pena: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was reassigned to minor league camp on Tuesday, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

He was not believed to be a serious threat to Drew Butera for the backup catcher gig, and indeed Pena will begin the year offering organizational depth at Triple-A.

Royals' Brayan Pena: Signs minor league deal with Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pena agreed to a minor-league deal with the Royals on Tuesday, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Pena's deal includes an invite to major league spring training, where he'll presumably compete with Drew Butera for backup catching duties behind primary backstop Salvador Perez. Butera's presence on the 40-man roster confers him an advantage over Pena, but the 35-year-old does at least have familiarity working in his favor after previously spending parts of four seasons in the Royals organization. The switch-hitting Pena appeared in nine games at the big-league level for the Cardinals in 2016, going 2-of-13 at the dish.

Brayan Pena: Released by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pena was released by the Cardinals on Monday.

He was recently designated for assignment, and the two sides opted to part ways so that Pena could pursue another opportunity. Pena typically straddles the line of being a replacement-level player, and he could get an opportunity with a team in need of catching depth, although he's unlikely to serve in more than a reserve role.

Cardinals' Brayan Pena: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was designated for assignment on Monday.

The Cardinals needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster after signing reliever Brett Cecil to a four-year deal, and Pena was a logical casualty. He is obviously behind Yadier Molina and was recently passed on the organizational depth chart by Carson Kelly. Look for Pena to serve as catching depth at the Triple-A level if he remains in the organization.

Cardinals' Brayan Pena: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pena (knee) was activated from the 60-day DL on Sunday.

Now presumably healthy, Pena will compete with Alberto Rosario for reps behind the rarely-rested Yadier Molina. Don't expect much offense from the 34-year-old Pena, as the veteran owns a .648 OPS over his last three seasons.
