I like the Carlos Pena signing. At one time, Carlos Pena was a higher end prospect but he never caught on in Detroit. Since then, he’s bounced around the minors and now he’s landed in Tampa. He’s still only 28, he’s left handed, and he’ll take a walk but he’s only a .243 career hitter so those walks only equate to .331 OBP. Still, his OPS has been on the north end of .800 which while not great for a firstbaseman, isn’t horrible either.
Raul Casanova at best is a backup catcher but he’s nice guy to have waiting down at Triple A in the event of an injury. This is a solid insurance pickup.
