White Sox released RHP Tony Peña.

Tony Peña had to leave his rehab outing Wednesday after just four pitches due to right elbow discomfort.

Peña has been out since late May with elbow issues and this is the second setback he's had during his rehab. He'll be reevaluated Thursday, but you've got to think season-ending surgery might be in the cards at this point.

Tony Pena (elbow) is set to resume a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

He suffered a setback in his first attempt at a rehab assignment, but will try to make in back to the majors within the next couple of weeks. The 29-year-old right-hander had a 6.20 ERA and 17/10 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings prior to the injury.

He will be evaluated on Monday. If Pena checks out, the White Sox will send him to Triple-A Charlotte for a rehab assignment. "As long as he's sore, we can't do anything now," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. Pena has been on the disabled list since May 28. The 29-year-old right-hander had a 6.20 ERA in 17 relief appearances before hitting the shelf.

Tony Pena (elbow) has completed his minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte.

Pena will head to Chicago on Monday afternoon to have his once-sore right elbow examined by White Sox team doctors.

The 29-year-old right-hander had a 6.20 ERA in 17 relief appearances before landing on the disabled list.

Tony Peña (elbow) has yet to begin a throwing program.

‘‘When he gets close enough, the first step will be a rehab assignment,’’ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. ‘‘But I think that’s a decision [trainer Herm Schneider] will make. When he can start throwing a little bit, then we’ll decide.’’ Peña remains out indefinitely.
Sat, Jun 11, 2011 09:19:00 AM

White Sox placed RHP Tony Peña on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.

We may now have a reason for his struggles, as Pena has a 6.20 ERA and 1.72 WHIP while walking 10 over 20 1/3 innings this season. It's not clear at this point how long he might be out. Lucas Harrell takes his spot as the long man in the bullpen.
