Brayan Pena Clears Waivers

Who wants a 27 year-old switch-hitting catcher who hit .303/.376/.462 at Triple A last year?  No one, apparently.  According to MLB.com's Dick Kaegel, Royals catcher Brayan Pena cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple A Omaha. This marks Pena's fifth trip to Triple A.  In their 2007 Handbook, Baseball America suggested Pena's defense was at least decent.  In a world of $2MM backup catchers, it's surprising Pena wasn't picked up.
