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.
