Giants designated INF Ramiro Pena for assignment.

The veteran infielder was squeezed off of the Giants roster with the addition of Eduardo Nunez and return of Hunter Pence. There's a decent chance that he'll pass through waivers unclaimed and continue to function as organizational depth in the minors for the Giants.

Ramiro Pena (groin) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

Ramiro Pena made his presence felt off the bench on Sunday, delivering a pinch-hit RBI double in the 11th inning, propelling the Giants to a 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Pena, who had been unavailable since spraining his ankle against the Athletics on Wednesday, was finally able to pinch-hit on Sunday and wound up in a heroic role because of it. He has been outstanding since being recalled from Triple-A, slashing .417/.432/.556 with seven RBI.
Jul 3 - 8:10 PM

Ramiro Pena (ankle) is hoping he'll be available off the bench Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Pena sprained his ankle in a game Wednesday against Oakland. His condition has improved steadily since then and he could be ready to join the lineup early next week. He's hit .400 over 35 at-bats since arriving in the big leagues last month.
Jul 2 - 8:06 PM

Ramiro Pena's MRI revealed a sprained ankle.

Pena suffered the injury in last night's loss to Oakland. The injury will keep him out of the lineup for the next 5-7 days, though Pena could be available to pinch-hit this weekend. He's hit .400 with six RBI since arriving in the big leagues about three weeks ago.
Jun 30 - 9:00 PM

Giants purchased the contract of INF Ramiro Pena from Triple-A Sacramento.

Giants signed INF Ramiro Pena to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Padres signed INF Ramiro Pena to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Pena, 29, batted .245/.304/.347 in 81 games with the Braves last season. He'll try to secure a bench job in the spring.

Ramiro Pena has elected free agency.

Pena was designated for assignment to make room on the Braves' 40-man roster, and he's chosen to test the market rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett. The 29-year-old batted .245/.304/.347 in 81 games with the Braves this past season.

Braves sent INF Ramiro Pena outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Pena was designated for assignment earlier in the week to make room on the 40-man roster. He was arbitration eligible this winter, which may have played a role in the move as well. It's unclear if he'll accept the assignment or attempt to find a better opportunity elsewhere through free agency.

Braves designated 2B Ramiro Pena for assignment.

Pena batted .245/.304/.347 in a reserve role this past season. The 29-year-old was removed from the 40-man roster so the club could protect some young players from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.

Ramiro Pena went 2-for-4 with a homer as the Braves' No. 9 hitter on Monday.

If the Braves decide to replace Dan Uggla, it's expected to be with Triple-A Gwinnett's Tommy La Stella. Pena, though, is probably a better defender than both of those guys, and he's been a reasonable enough hitter in 129 at-bats over the last two years. He likely earned himself another start on Tuesday anyway.
