Francisco Pena collects hit and scores Thursday

Francisco Pena came into the game for Yadier Molina and collected one hit and scored once on the day.

Fantasy Impact

Pena has no fantasy value at this point due to how little playing time he's receiving being Molina's backup.

Francisco Pena will be Molina's backup on Opening Day

Francisco Pena will be the Cardinals backup catcher on Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Pena joined the Cardinals in mid-December on a minor-league deal and turned in a solid spring to gain the backup catcher spot. Pena won't see much time outside of giving Molina a rest, but will be the next in line if Molina goes down with an injury.

Francisco Pena goes 2-3 with two homers

Francisco Pena had two homers on Saturday against the resurgent Nathan Karns, both solo hots.

Fantasy Impact

Pena made the most of a rare start, as he did some damage against the Royals Saturday. He promised his mom that he would hit a homer for her for Mother's Day weekend, and she was fortunate enough to see him hit two. Unfortunately for him, he is unlikely to keep playing, as he is currently second on the depth chart, and will drop to third once Welington Castillo is back.
