Description: Reds catcher Brayan Pena (hamstring) will start Wednesday's game at Boston.
Insight: Pena missed Tuesday's game with a hamstring issue. He's homered in three of his last five games and is hitting .328 this season. The 32-year-old will continue to start behind the plate while Devin Mesoraco recovers from a strained hamstring.

Description: Reds catcher Brayan Pena bashed three hits Monday in a loss to St. Louis.
Insight: It's his first three-hit game since August 13th. Despite a .298 average since the start of 2013, Pena doesn't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Description: If/when Jason Kendall isn't ready for action at the start of the season, it will gives Brayan Pena his first chance to be a starting catcher. He aims to take advantage of the opportunity. SOURCE: AP
Insight: Pena is a good short-term addition for the month of April in deeper leagues. He likely won't hurt you average and that is great news from a late-round catcher.

Description: The Kansas City Star reports Pena hopes to lose 10-15 pounds this offseason.
Insight: Pena currently weighs 229 pounds, and has apparently gone to a sugar-free diet. He could be in the Royals' catcher rotation in 2011, unless the team adds a more seasoned veteran. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Kansas City Star reports Royals' manager Ned Yost plans to give Pena more playing time going forward.
Insight: Pena is hitting .173 in 52 at-bats this season, and is extremely unlikely to have any fantasy value and his increased playing time would hamper Jason Kendall's already limited fantasy value. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Pena hit a two-run home run on Tuesday, running his streak of games with an RBI to six.
Insight: Pena will serve as Jason Kendall's backup, which is not a recipe for a lot of playing time given Kendall's durability. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Pena is one of the final three players battling for the Royals' 25th roster spot.
