Angels' Felix Pena: Headed for knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will have surgery to repair his right torn ACL on Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Pena tore his ACL on Aug. 4 against the Indians, and he'll go under the knife shortly after to have as much recovery time as possible heading into next season. A more precise timeline for his return should emerge following surgery.

Angels' Felix Pena: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (knee) was transferred to the 60-day IL on Monday.

This move is simply procedural, as Pena has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL over the weekend. Patrick Sandoval, who is set to serve as the primary pitcher Monday against Cincinnati, had his contract selected from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

Angels' Felix Pena: Done for season after tearing ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL after exiting early in his start in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Indians, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. He's slated to undergo surgery within the next few days and is expected to require 6-to-9 months to recover.

Pena retired the first five batters he faced Saturday before exiting after he took a spill while recording a putout at first base. The Angels revealed earlier Sunday that Pena would land on the 10-day injured list with a right knee sprain, with DiGiovanna's follow-up report indicating the right-hander sustained ligament damage that will spell an end to his season. The team may be able to pinpoint a more precise timeline for Pena once the surgery is completed, but he looks at major risk of being a spectator for the beginning of spring training. He'll wrap up the 2019 campaign with an 8-3 record, 4.58 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 101:34 K:BB across 96.1 innings.

Angels' Felix Pena: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels placed Pena (knee) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rotation mate Griffin Canning (undisclosed) was also placed on the 10-day IL, currently leaving the Angels with a three-man rotation. Patrick Sandoval will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to fill Canning's next turn Monday in Cincinnati, but the Angels have yet to announce a replacement in the rotation for Pena, who sprained his right knee early in his outing Saturday against the Indians. Pena was scheduled to undergo an MRI after his departure, but the Angels haven't revealed the results of those tests, making it uncertain how long he'll be on the shelf.

Angels' Felix Pena: Out with knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was removed from Saturday's game against the Indians with a sprained right knee and will undergo an MRI.

Pena suffered the injury while lunging for a throw when covering first base Saturday and required significant assistance when leaving the field. The severity of the injury should be clarified by the MRI, but the 29-year-old seems likely to be headed to the injured list.

Angels' Felix Pena: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena was removed from Saturday's game with an apparent ankle or knee injury, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Pena had an awkward landing while lunging for a throw covering first base during the second inning and appeared to roll his left ankle, but it looked as though his right knee may have been the issue as he was helped off the field, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. More information should be available on the injury as Pena is further evaluated.

Angels' Felix Pena: Strikes out five in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena allowed four runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks across five innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Orioles. He struck out five.

Pena allowed one run while limiting baserunners over the first four innings, but a walk, his own error and a pair of hits led to three unearned runs in the fifth. He labored through his final inning and didn't come back out for the sixth, watching as the bullpen held on over the final four frames. Pena lasted just 3.2 innings in his previous start, so while he didn't finish the way he wanted to in this one, it was good to see him pitch deeper into the game. He will take a 4.66 ERA into his next appearance on the road against Cleveland.

Angels' Felix Pena: Working as traditional starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brad Ausmus said that Pena will start Sunday's game against the Orioles rather than working as a bulk reliever, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Los Angeles bullpen has been taxed pretty heavily of late, which may explain why Ausmus has chosen to have Pena start. The right-hander has been far more effective this season when deployed out of the bullpen, submitting a 4.26 ERA and holding opposing batters to a .214/.283/.389 line across 67.2 innings. Comparatively, he's posted a 6.55 ERA while yielding a .256/.347/.488 line across five starts.

Angels' Felix Pena: Collects eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena (8-3) was credited with the victory over the Dodgers on Tuesday, throwing 3.2 innings and allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five.

Pena served as the primary pitcher behind Taylor Cole and allowed one run to pick up the victory. He needed 80 pitches to retire 11 batters -- one of whom was thrown out at home plate -- and exited in the fifth inning after allowing a pair of two-out walks. With the win, Pena moves to 8-3 on the year despite an uninspiring 4.82 ERA. He'll likely function as a bulk reliever again in his next scheduled appearance at home against Baltimore on Sunday.

Angels' Felix Pena: Working as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena will serve as the bulk reliever Tuesday night against the Dodgers, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Pena was in line to start, but the Angels have elected to roll with Taylor Cole for the first inning or two. Pena owns a 4.92 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with a 91:28 K:BB over 86 innings this season.

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.

July 5, 2019 04:00 PM
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.

June 29, 2019 06:08 PM
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.
