Bridgeport Bluefish Sign Wily Mo Pena

The Atlantic League's Bridgeport Bluefish signed outfielder Wily Mo Pena on Saturday, according to the team.  Pena, 28, had been released by the Mets about a year ago after posting a .276/.296/.414 line in 152 Triple A plate appearances.  Pena's new team features plenty of familiar names, such as Brian Barton, Denny Stark, Jorge Julio, Antonio Alfonseca, Tike Redman, Adam Greenberg, and Esteban Yan.

Pena was once very highly regarded as a power hitter.  He has three appearances on a Baseball America Top 100 Prospects list, once for the Yankees and twice for the Reds.  He was still an interesting player upon being dealt to the Red Sox for Bronson Arroyo in '06 and to the Nationals the following year.  Shoulder surgery and a $2MM salary led to Pena's release by the Nats in March of '09.
