Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena agreed to a minor-league deal with St. Louis on Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Pena spent the past two seasons in the Orioles' system, and wound up playing in 19 big-league games during that span. During 51 contests with Triple-A Norfolk in 2017, the catcher slashed .278/.309/.450 with six home runs and 18 RBI. Although he may not make an impact at the major-league level, Pena will serve as organizational depth for the Redbirds moving forward.

Orioles' Francisco Pena: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Pena was designated for assignment again when Welington Castillo returned to action, and he'll once again return to Norfolk after passing through waivers unclaimed. He very well could end up back in Baltimore soon if another injury strikes either Castillo or Caleb Joseph, as Pena seems to be the clear no. 3 catching option in the organization despite not being on the 40-man roster.

Orioles' Francisco Pena: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was designated for assignment on Saturday MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

With Welington Castillo (groin) returning from the disabled list, the Orioles needed to clear a roster spot and did so by designated Pena for assignment for the second time this season. Pena made just one start while Castillo was on the DL and went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts against the Red Sox. He'll now be subject to waivers and could be picked up by a team in need of catching depth.

Orioles' Francisco Pena: Falters in rare opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena, making his first start since being called up Wednesday, went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox. He also made a costly error in the sixth inning.

Pena's offense was not the story in this one. A major two-out throwing error with the bases loaded in the sixth inning allowed two runs to come across, ultimately proving to be the knockout punch. It's the type of defensive mishap that will have the catcher shipped back to the minor leagues without hesitation once Welington Castillo (groin) is activated from the DL later this week.

Orioles' Francisco Pena: Has contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena had his contract purchased from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.

With Wellington Castillo (groin) headed to the disabled list, Pena was added to the big-league roster to serve as the Orioles' backup catcher. This will be his second stint with the big club this season; he went 4-for-7 with two solo homers in three games earlier in the year.
