D’Backs Designate Wily Mo Pena For Assignment

The Diamondbacks have designated Wily Mo Pena for assignment, reports Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona (Twitter link).  In corresponding moves, the D'Backs also optioned Juan Miranda to Triple-A and called up Brandon Allen and Geoff Blum.

Arizona signed the slugger to a $675K minor league deal in December and called him up last month to serve as a DH during interleague play.  Pena hit .196/.196/.522 in 46 plate appearances with the Snakes and hit five homers, two of which were game-winners.  Before this year, Pena's last appearance in the Major Leagues came in 2008 with the Nationals.
