This has been a long time coming, but Pena finally makes this list after a horrible three full months that has dropped his numbers to a paltry .195/.319/.358 line. In addition, his .163 ISO and 14.3 percent HR/FB ratio are his lowest rates he has produced since becoming a regular with the Rays in 2007. Pena has been striking out at a 30.3 percent rate, his highest since 2005 with the Tigers, and his career worst 17.1 percent infield fly ball rate has hurt his overall production and his aforementioned HR/FB ratio. The Rays are so desperate for offense that Pena has remained the starter for the entire season, but I would have a hard time imagining getting playing time if he was in any other organization. He still holds some value in OBP leagues, but I do not believe the 20-23 home runs and 80 RBI are worth the poor average in standard leagues.
