Prospect of the Day:  RHP Ariel Pena (Double-A Huntsville)

Though this distinction could have easily gone to Brandon Macias or Tyler Wagner, right-hander Ariel Pena stood out for two reasons: (1) he was straight-up filthy against Jackson on Wednesday evening, and (2) he finally showed a glimpse of that high-end talent scouts saw when the Brewers acquired Pena in the Greinke trade last summer.

Wednesday night, Pena was reportedly sitting 92-95 mph with his fastball and even touched 96 mph on a couple pitches. He threw 54 of 87 pitches for strikes (62.1%) and was extremely efficient, given his high strikeout total.

The Dominican native worked into the seventh inning, but surrendered a double and a walk before giving way to reliever Greg Holle, who got a couple strikeouts to maintain the shutout. It was a wonderful performance by Pena. Though this one outing doesn’t increase his ultimate value as a prospect, it certainly reminds us that he possesses more ability on the mound than he’s shown in the past nine or ten months.

    I love mornings when i come to DoU and there’s too many options for POTD. Btw, how hard does Wagner throw?

    • J.P. Breen says: May 9, 2013

      He threw up to 95 mph as a reliever in college. I haven’t heard anything about his velocity this spring. Yesterday, though, his strikeouts were coming largely via his slider — which already flashes plus.

  2. Jeremy says: May 9, 2013

    I haven’t followed him since his demotion but is Fiers such a hot mess that he needs to be in A ball? Or is this injury related?

    • Lucus says: May 9, 2013

      Family related. Brewers accommodated to were he needed to be with his family at this time. Right thing to do.
