Royals Acquire Tony Pena Jr.

Yesterday we learned that the Royals had a list of 20 shortstops in their sights; today they made a deal. Dayton Moore nabbed Tony Pena Jr. from his former employer, the Braves.

Pena, 26, is the son of the former Royals manager.  I’m not sure he’ll be of much value offensively, but at least he’ll play good defense.  Pena’s PECOTA calls for a Berroa-like .244/.279/.337 line.
