Giants' Francisco Pena: Sent to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was traded from the Cardinals to the Giants on Thursday for cash considerations, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Pena will provide organizational catching depth for the Giants, who recently promoted veteran backstop Stephen Vogt to the big-league roster. The 29-year-old Pena owns a career .216/.249/.311 slash line across parts of five major-league campaigns (86 games). He'll report to Triple-A Sacramento.

Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Loses out on backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena lost the backup catcher job battle to Matt Wieters and can now either accept an assignment to Triple-A Memphis or sign with another team, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Pena has an opt-out clause in his contract that allows him to be granted a release in order to sign with another team as Grapefruit League play concludes. Pena had a solid spring at the plate, hitting .278 with a double and three RBI over 18 at-bats. The 29-year-old backstop's agent will now survey the landscape over the coming days to see if there is interest from another big-league club in Pena.

Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Still in contention for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (oblique), who went 0-for-3 and threw out a runner in his return to the lineup against the Nationals on Saturday, remains in contention for the backup catcher role, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.

The fact Pena returned to action Saturday after an 11-day absence still gives manager Mike Shildt a few games to evaluate him before a final decision, one which the skipper said will be made "within a week". Pena had gone 5-for-14 with three RBI over five Grapefruit League games before his injury, so he'd put together a solid body of work that helped him maintain his candidacy during his absence. Notably, both Pena and Wieters are in the same boat with respect to their contracts -- each has opt-out clauses in their minor-league deals that would allow them to become free agents if they don't make the Opening Day roster.

Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Checks into lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (oblique) will start behind the plate and bat fifth Saturday in the Cardinals' Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

The Cardinals' choice to use Pena at catcher rather than as a designated hitter in his first spring action since March 5 implies that he's moved past the left oblique strain that sidelined him for a week and a half. The 29-year-old will face a stiff test in his return with three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer on the bump for Washington.

Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Expects to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (oblique) should return to action for Saturday's spring game against Washington, Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

As previously anticipated, the 29-year-old backstop will return to spring games over the weekend after recovering from a left oblique strain. Pena was off to a strong start at the dish prior to suffering the injury, going 5-for-14 with three RBI.
