The Roman Pena File
Born: Sept. 2, 1986 in Tijuana Baja, CA
Acquired: Ninth-round draft pick in 2005 from Montgomery (CA) HS.
Strengths: Raw power is a plus. Is a solid outfielder with an above average arm. Does have some speed, as evidenced by 14 steals last season. Scored 70 runs and drove in 66 while making SAL All-Star team.
Weaknesses: Repeated season at Lake County, where he once again struck out way too much (104 K, 426 AB). Plate discipline must improve.
2009 Projection: Will likely start season at Kinston.
