Wily Mo Pena Exercises ’09 Option

According to MLB.com’s Bill Ladson, the Nationals declined their $5MM club option on outfielder Wily Mo Pena.  However, Pena exercised his $2MM player option.  2008 was a lost year for Pena due to a rotator cuff injury.  He’ll be 27 in January; he has plenty of time to rediscover his power stroke.  An Austin Kearns trade could clear up playing time for him.
