Tigers Will Not Return Pena in 2014

The Detroit Tigers are ready to move on without backup catcher Brayan Pena. A team spokesman says Pena's agent reached out to the Tigers and the team said at this point it is looking in a different direction. Pena signed a one year deal with Detroit before the 2013 season. He hit .297 with four home runs in 71 games as the primary backup to Alex Avila. The 31-year old Pena has also played for the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves. The Tigers also have 25-year old Bryan Holaday in their system. He started eight games behind the plate this year for the Tigers.
