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

Pena is really turning into an interesting story this month. I talked to a couple scouts who saw him last summer and this spring who thought he was nothing more than a potential middle reliever, but his recent domination at Double-A has me itching to talk to the same scouts and find out what has changed (if anything). In his last five starts, he’s allowed four runs over 29.2 innings with 36 strikeouts and 12 walks. His performance closely mirrors what he did last year in the Angels’ organization before being traded to Milwaukee in late July.

Is this simply a case of a 24-year-old pitcher dominating Double-A with a power fastball/slider combination that he’s just happening to command at the moment, or is this something more? Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to that right now. I’m going to do some digging, though, and see what I can dig up on Ariel Pena because he’s having a tremendous stretch on the mound.
