Now Pitching For The Royals… Tony Pena. Jr.


So, Tony Pena, Jr. is heading to AZ… Surprise! He’s converting into a pitcher. All I can say is, go for it. He’d need to know how to operate a bat to be a position player (even a Short Stop)… and he hasn’t been able to accomplish that task. He has a strong arm, so that should help.

TJ does have a pretty good career pitching line:
1 I, 0 R, 1 SO, 0 BB… here’s the video: http://tinyurl.com/kspnvm

TJ also seems to be a good kid, so I like keeping him in the organization. The only other way to keep him is to make him Zack Greinke’s & Brian Bannister’s valet Short Stop… DH the SS spot… and let the pitchers hit. I don’t think even Tony LaRussa would do that!
