Angels' Felix Pena: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (7-3) was charged with the loss against the Astros on Wednesday, surrendering eight runs on nine hits and a walk while recording five strikeouts over 4.2 innings.

Pena struggled against a tough Astros lineup, giving up three runs in the first inning on an RBI double to Alex Bregman and a two-run homer to Michael Brantley. He then allowed a two-run double to Jose Altuve in the second, surrendered another run on a wild pitch in the third, and was unable to finish the fifth inning after hitting Brantley with a pitch and surrendering a single to Robinson Chirinos. It was a rare outing in which the Angels did not use an opener ahead of Pena. The right-hander was coming off a dominant performance against the Mariners during which he threw seven no-hit innings to complete a combined no-hitter. Pena now owns a 4.92 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 91:28 K:BB over 20 appearances.

Angels' Felix Pena: Starting without opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will start Wednesday's game against the Astros without an opener, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Astros' lineup is so deep that he would still be facing a murderers' row if he came in to start the second inning. Additionally, Pena is coming off his best outing in two months, contributing to the combined no hitter last week against the Mariners. He gave up two runs while striking out five in four innings the last time he faced Houston.

Angels' Felix Pena: Dominant in no-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (7-2) picked up the win Friday against the Mariners after tossing seven no-hit innings with two strikeouts and one walk.

Pena entered the game to begin the third inning with a 9-0 lead behind opener Taylor Cole and shut the Mariners out the rest of the way. Together, the two pitchers threw a combined no-hitter as the Angels honored the memory of Tyler Skaggs in their first home game since his tragic passing. Overall this season, Pena has compiled a 4.32 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 86:27 K:BB over 19 appearances.

Angels' Felix Pena: Following opener again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will follow opener Taylor Cole on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Pena hasn't officially started a game since mid-April but is regularly throwing four or more innings following an opener. The strategy increases his fantasy value slightly, as he can earn wins without pitching five innings and gets to skip the toughest part of the opposition's order the first time through the lineup, but he remains not particularly interesting due to his 4.72 ERA.

Angels' Felix Pena: Nabs sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (6-2) picked up the win Friday, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over four innings of relief while striking out five in a 5-4 victory over the Astros.

Entering the game after Noe Ramirez gave the Angels a scoreless first inning as the opener, Pena threw 38 of 61 pitches for strikes and benefited from a four-homer barrage by his offense. The right-hander will take a 4.72 ERA and 80:26 K:BB through 74.1 innings into the All-Star break.

Angels' Felix Pena: Now slated to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena is in line to make his next appearance Friday against the Astros, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Following Tyler Skaggs' tragic passing Monday, the Angels added Jaime Barria to the rotation for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, resulting in the team's other starters being pushed back a day in the schedule. Pena, who had initially been in line to start Thursday's series finale in Texas, will instead take the hill for the Angels' first game of the weekend. As per usual, Pena is expected to work out of the bullpen as a bulk reliever, though the Angels have yet to specify to whom they will turn as an opener.

Angels' Felix Pena: Filling bulk-relief role Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena is slated to work behind an opener in Thursday's game against the Rangers.

The Angels have yet to announce which pitcher will work ahead of Pena, but the right-hander will be tasked with covering the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen, as is typically the case when his turn in the rotation comes up. Pena wrapped up June with a 7.97 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB in 20.1 innings across five appearances.

Angels' Felix Pena: Allows three runs Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena allowed three runs on two hits and four walks while striking out seven batters over five innings of relief Friday. He did not factor in the decision in a 7-2 loss to the Athletics.

The Angels' offense was unable to get opener Noe Ramirez off the hook for the loss, while Pena was able to avoid any damage to his record after replacing him. Pena has pitched to a 4.73 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 16 appearances spanning 70.1 innings this season with a 75:24 K:BB ratio and a 5-2 record. He's likely to face the Rangers on Wednesday for his next appearance.

Angels' Felix Pena: Following opener Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will work behind opening pitcher Noe Ramirez in Friday's game against the Athletics, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Angels seem committed to using Pena as a primary pitcher at this point, as only four of his 15 outings to date have come as a traditional starter. After a stellar May, Pena's numbers have taken a dramatic turn for the worse in June. Over his four turns as a primary pitcher this month, Pena has yielded 17 runs (15 earned) on 24 hits and seven walks over 15.1 innings.

Angels' Felix Pena: Gives up four in four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (5-2) took the loss Saturday against St. Louis, giving up four runs (two earned) in four innings. He allowed four hits and walked one batter while striking out five.

Pena served as the primary pitcher behind Noe Ramirez, entering in the third inning. He threw a pair of scoreless frames before allowing two runs to score on his own error in the fifth inning and giving up a two-run homer in the sixth. Pena will likely pitch again next Thursday against Oakland.

June 22, 2019 12:56 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Locked in as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will serve as the Angels' primary pitcher for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

As per usual, Pena is slated to cover the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen for the Angels while working behind opener Noe Ramirez, who draws his second "start" of the season. Over three outings in June, Pena has been lit up for 13 runs on 20 hits and six walks over 11.1 innings.

June 17, 2019 10:36 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Backed by bats in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (5-1) picked up the win Monday, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over six innings of relief while striking out five in a 10-5 victory over the Blue Jays.

It wasn't the right-hander's sharpest outing of the year -- Pena threw 52 of 85 pitches for strikes -- but the Angels mashed four homers to support him, including one by Justin Upton in his 2019 debut. Pena will take a 4.70 ERA and 63:19 K:BB through 61.1 innings into his next appearance Saturday in St. Louis.

June 17, 2019 11:36 AM
Angels' Felix Pena: Following opener again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena is slated to work behind opening pitcher Luis Garcia in Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Pena has only drawn four traditional starts all season, but he's seen as a member of the rotation and continues to receive regular turns every four to five days. Though Pena has most commonly worked behind Cam Bedrosian, the Angels will preserve Bedrosian for late-inning work in the series opener and instead turn to Garcia to lead things off. Like Bedrosian before him, Garcia is expected to be limited to only an inning or two as the opener before turning the game over to Pena, who should fill the bulk of the frames. Pena has been stellar on the whole this season but has stumbled in his last two turns through the rotation, yielding nine runs on 14 hits and three walks over just 5.1 innings.

Angels' Felix Pena: Earns fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (4-1) took over in the second inning against the Dodgers on Tuesday and picked up the win, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk over 3.2 innings while striking out four.

Though Pena labored by throwing 74 pitches, he was credited with the win due to his role as the primary pitcher following an opener. While his performance Tuesday was hardly perfect, it was a dramatic improvement over his last outing in which he gave up seven runs in 1.2 innings. Pena now sports a 4.55 ERA and 1.19 WHIP on the season.

June 8, 2019 08:32 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Tabbed to pitch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will serve as the primary pitcher Tuesday versus the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Pena will continue to follow an opener and hopes for a rebound performance after giving up seven runs to the A's on Wednesday. Overall the 29-year-old has a 4.53 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 54:15 K:BB over 51.2 innings this season.

June 6, 2019 03:52 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Beat up by Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 10-9 win over the Athletics after giving up seven runs on eight hits and two walks over 1.2 innings.

Three of the five outs Pena recorded came via strikeouts, but that's of little consolation for fantasy managers who included him in daily or weekly lineups. Prior to Wednesday's meltdown, Pena had been excellent in his previous five outings, posting a 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 24:6 K:BB in 23.1 innings. He may have a tough time bouncing back in his next scheduled turn, which is likely to come Monday at home versus a strong Dodgers lineup.

June 5, 2019 07:00 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Tabbed as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will be used as a bulk reliever Wednesday against the A's.

Cam Bedrosian is scheduled to serve as the opener in front of Pena, who figures to cover the majority of innings Wednesday. The right-handed Pena, who has bounced between starter and bulk reliever, owns a 3.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 51:13 K:BB in 50 innings this season.

May 31, 2019 03:12 AM
Angels' Felix Pena: Collects win as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (3-1) earned the win versus Seattle on Thursday, throwing 5.1 innings and allowing three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out eight.

Serving as the primary pitcher behind an opener for the sixth time this season, Pena gave the Angels 5.1 solid but inefficient innings. He needed 102 pitches to retire 16 batters but kept Seattle hitters off balance most of the night, striking out eight. Pena figures to see more appearances as a bulk reliever this year since he has put up good numbers in the role thus far, posting a 3-0 record with a 3.13 ERA.

May 30, 2019 05:36 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Working as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will be used as a bulk reliever Thursday against the Mariners, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Luis Garcia will serve as the opener in front of Pena, who should cover the bulk of innings Thursday. The 29-year-old has made four starts and five appearances as a primary pitcher this season, compiling a 3.30 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 40:9 K:BB in those appearances (43.2 innings).

May 30, 2019 02:00 PM
Angels' Felix Pena: Rejoins rotation Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will either start or be used as a primary pitcher in Thursday's game against the Mariners.

The 29-year-old has been a fixture in the rotation for the majority of the season, but manager Brad Ausmus used Pena in as a more traditional reliever in his most recent appearance Sunday against the Rangers. Pena only tossed 21 pitches while striking out three of the four batters he faced, so it's not expected that he'll face any significant restrictions while he returns to the mound on three days' rest. Pena has made four starts and five appearances as a primary pitcher this season, but he should be in store for a similar innings count regardless of how he's deployed Thursday.
