The Astros were hoping that 35-year old lefty swinging 1B/DH Carlos Pena was going to give them a lot of power. That hasn’t worked out quite yet. Pena has played in 63 games so far this year and he is 50 for 212 (.236 avg, .728 OPS) with with 30 runs scored, 6 homers, 18 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Pena has walked 32 times (#1 on the Astros), but he has also whiffed 65 times (2nd on the team to Chris Carter) so far this year. The Astros are in a rebuilding mode, so they shouldn’t be giving ABs to guys like Pena. Look for them to try to deal him at some point in the near future.
