BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Another of the Mets' aggressive assignments to full-season action, Francisco Pena might have struggled behind the plate, but he didn't embarrass himself as an 18-year-old in the Sally League.
2008 Francisco Pe?a has daddy Tony's defensive chops, but he's got a long way to go with the bat. The good news is that he played the entire year in a full-season league at the tender age of 17.
