the HR will be there, but so will the K's and bad AVG.
this from rotoworld.
Wily Mo Peña went deep Friday for the second time this week, hitting a solo shot while also adding an RBI single in a win over the Tigers.
He's predictably struck out eight times in 15 at-bats, but Peña also hasn't taken long to show off the power that he displayed at Triple-A, where he hit 21 longballs. He'll likely stick on the roster after the D'Backs no longer have the benefit of the DH.

if you need HR and can risk hurting your AVG he could be worth a starting spot.

30 ABs, 4 HRs, and 14 K's with 0 walks. That's crazy.

I'm guessing he forced them into keeping him after interleague. But when the HR binge slows a little and the K's keep piling up, I think he'll be sent down and Cowgill called up.

Meet the new Wily Mo Pena, same as the old Wily Mo Pena.

For what it's worth, he came in and hit a pinch hit HR today. Don't know how this situation is going to work out but he's definitely making a move to stay up.

How that works for fantasy purposes, I'm not sure. I'd sure hate to keep him in my lineup hoping he gets to pinch hit.

so much for Wily. Free wily.
Diamondbacks designated OF Wily Mo Pena for assignment.
Pena slugged five home runs in 46 at-bats with the Diamondbacks but was let go Thursday due to his lack of defensive ability. He could draw interest elsewhere.


couldn't they have just sent him back down to the minors?
DFA means exactly? 10 days to trade him? and if he is not traded does he then go back to the minors or become a free agent?

WMP has enough MLB experience that he can refuse a demotion, which he apparently did, which allows his team to DFA him, at which point he'll probably sign with an AL team somewhere I would presume.

Mariners brought him and he's hitting DH tonight. Let's see if he can at least mash for some roto players who need HR stats.
