"The best thing they (the Reds) can do is to play me or trade me because I no longer want to be on the bench.....but for next season they are going to have to give me a permanent position or trade me to another team. "

Rating: PLUSEver since we traded him as a prospect, the Reds have never given him a chance to start full time. He struggles with righties at times, and also had nagging wrist injuries during the year which likely dampened his numbers. However, hes 23, can play centerfield, and is likely on the way outs. I think there will be significant interest from usBaserunning & Defense
Despite his good size, Pena has above-average speed and should be able to steal in double figures as he gains more experience. He has excellent range and a cannon for a throwing arm, and the Reds think his tools could allow him to play center field, though his experience largely has been in the corner outfield positions.
