Cardinals | Brayan Pena undergoes surgery

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 20:59:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: With Pena on the shelf, Eric Fryer will serve as the primary backup backstop to Yadier Molina.

Cardinals | Brayan Pena to DL

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 13:46:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Brayan Pena (knee) will open the season on the disabled list to remove a loose particle of cartilage in his left knee, an injury that Pena says stems from a dugout slip during the spring. The injury is expected to sideline him two to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Pena was slated to begin the season as Yadier Molina's backup catcher - a job that will belong to Eric Fryer for the next few weeks. The biggest fantasy impact here is that Molina may play in a game or two more during that stretch since Fryer has such limited major-league experience.

Cardinals | Still looking for veteran catcher

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 04:55:39 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak is looking for options behind the plate to complement C Yadier Molina and C Brayan Pena.

Fantasy Tip: Molina may not be ready for Opening Day and Pena is little more than a backup that can be pressed into starting duty for a few weeks. The club needs more help, so monitor who the Cardinals get.

Reds | Brayan Pena tests his injuries

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 20:39:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena (hamstring) did some crouching and throwing drills Wednesday, Sept. 16, and he caught a bullpen session from SP Anthony DeSclafani. He might return to the lineup sometime during the upcoming series with the Milwaukee Brewers, manager Bryan Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could return sometime soon, but he is still not a useful FantasyScore option until he proves his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Reds | Brayan Pena to miss time

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 21:39:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena (hamstring) left the game Wednesday, Sept. 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to a hamstring injury. He said initial test results were positive, but he will have more tests Thursday, Sept. 10. He might only be out a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is only worth using in FantasyScore to help save salary to allocate to more valuable positions.

Reds | Brayan Pena batting second vs. Brewers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:06:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) grabs a nice value boost hitting atop the lineup. Still, he you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Pena's on-base percentage (.340) is higher than his slugging percentage (.319), after all. He is nothing more than an endgame lineup filler at FantayScore Friday.

Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:25:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Tucker Barnhart receives the start again and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just four home runs in the last two years, so he's a very weak FantasyScore option as your catcher. He also is hitting just .194 (6-for-31) with no homers against lefties this year.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart draws into lineup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:35:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer Monday, Aug. 24. C Brayan Pena is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) typically is a backup catcher to avoid in daily games, but his matchup against Farmer makes him at least worth consideration as a deep sleeper.

Reds | Brayan Pena starting vs. Arizona

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:33:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players should view Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) as a potential source of cap relief Friday. He has a .359 on-base percentage against righties, but he also offers limited upside with a measly .347 slugging percentage against them. It is likely wise to aim higher.

Reds | Bryan Pena not playing

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:59:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. C Tucker Barnhart receives the start again and is hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: It's a stretch to consider Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) for your FantasyScore lineups against Corbin, who has been impressive in his return from Tommy John surgery.
