Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Pena has quick hands and above average bat speed; shows a patient approach at the plate, controls the zone well, has plus barrel control; can get off balanced on secondaries.
Power 45 Swing is geared mostly for line drives, average raw to pull side, will play fringe average in game with physical maturity.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus raw foot speed; smart, aggressive baserunner that will take an extra base.
Glove 70 Great instincts with easy, fluid actions in the field; soft hands and quick transfers; plus range, can handle any position on the infield but will stick at shortstop.
Arm 60 Plus arm strength, shows good carry from the left side; accurate and has a advanced internal clock.

Pena, the son of former big leaguer Geronimo Pena, is one of the top defensive infielders in the minor leagues. It's a glove that will play at the six at the highest level and, combined with his speed, give a relatively high floor of at least a major league utility player. At the plate, he's got a feel for contact and some pop that should play fringe average as he matures. Continued offensive development will give a future profile of a solid major league starting shortstop.
