Date:

Francisco Pena went 3-for-4 for low Single-A Savannah on Wednesday, giving him 10 hits in his last four games.

The 18-year-old Pena is hitting .297/.327/.426 in his second year in the Sally League. Tony's son has terrific defensive potential, so if he turns into an adequate hitter, he should have a future as a major league regular.

Francisco Pena went 2-for-3 with a homer and two walks Wednesday for low Single-A Savannah.

Pena didn't drive in a run during April, so he is making progress with three homers this month. At age 17, he doesn't need to do much offensively this year to remain a quality prospect. He's currently at .254/.324/.341 in 126 at-bats.

17-year-old Francisco Pena went 4-for-4 with a double Saturday for low Single-A Savannah.

Tony's son probably won't do a lot offensively this year, but just holding his own in full-season ball would be pretty impressive. He's 7-for-17 so far.

According to ESPNDeportes.com, the Mets have signed 16-year-old catcher Francisco Pena to a minor league contract with a $750,000 bonus.

Francisco is the son of Yankees coach and former big-league catcher Tony Pena and the brother of Braves prospect Tony Pena Jr. He's supposed to be a very good defensive catcher and a promising hitter. The Mets could announce the signing next week.
