Ariel Pena has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Nashville to a right forearm injury.

Pena was struck out his forearm with a comeback during his most recent outing on Saturday. Fortunately, he managed to escape without a fracture. As of now, he's only expected to miss one start.

Brewers optioned RHP Ariel Pena to Triple-A Nashville.

His cut comes as no surprise. One of the pieces the Brewers got in the Zack Greinke deal, Pena held a 3.73 ERA over 27 Double-A starts last season. He needs to improve his control before he'll be considered for a call-up.

Brewers optioned RHP Ariel Pena and LHP Miguel De Los Santos to Double-A Huntsville.

Pena is one of the Brewers' better pitching prospects, but he didn't have a chance to break camp with the big club. De Los Santos is expected to be out until July with shoulder issues.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said prospect right-hander Ariel Pena has received his visa in the Dominican Republic and is expected to arrive in camp on Wednesday.

Pena, who was acquired from the Angels last July in the Zack Greinke deal, posted a 3.93 ERA and 140/65 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings at the Double-A level in 2012. The 23-year-old has struggled with his command, so many believe he'll end up in the bullpen in the long run. Baseball America ranked him as the organization's No. 22 prospect over the winter.

Acquired from the Angels in the Zack Greinke deal, Pena put up a 3.93 ERA while striking out 140 over 146 2/3 innings at the Double-A level this season. The 23-year-old could be ready for a bump up to Triple-A in 2013.

Brewers acquired RHP Ariel Pena, SS Jean Segura and RHP Johnny Hellweg from the Angels for RHP Zack Greinke.

The 23-year-old right-hander has posted a 6-6 record, 2.99 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 111/42 K/BB ratio over 19 starts spanning 114 1/3 innings for Double-A Arkansas this season. He’s considered close to big league ready and could have a shot to pitch in the Brewers rotation at some point this season.

Angels optioned RHP Ariel Pena to Double-A Arkansas.

Pena, 22, compiled a 4.39 ERA and 183/85 K/BB ratio over 155 2/3 innings last season between High- and Triple-A. He has an intriguing arm but will need to develop a third pitch if he wants to stick as a starter.

Angels purchased the contract of RHP Ariel Pena from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Pena, 22, compiled a 4.39 ERA and 183/85 K/BB ratio over 155 2/3 innings this season between High-A Inland Empire and Triple-A Salt Lake. He has a potent fastball/slider combo, but has yet to develop an effective third pitch, which could have him bullpen-bound in the long-run.
