From the Reds site:

Wily Mo Pena continues a hitting binge with the Louisville Bats while rehabbing a left quadriceps injury. He went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBIs on Friday night while playing right field, and 1-for-4 in the designated hitter slot Saturday afternoon. He was taken out for a pinch-runner Friday night, prompting rumors of a possible setback, but Reds head trainer Mark Mann dismissed the reports, stressing that Pena was fine.

I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

  1. That’s nice to hear. The AP’s line item wasn’t confirmed anywhere else, and since he played the next day it couldn’t have been anything more than rumor-mongering. Thanks for the update.
