Royals add Braves catcher

*NOTE: Working off a media release reproduced by an internet poster, still looking for confirmation*

In the category of "transactions that don't make sense except that Dayton used to work for the Braves", the Royals picked up a third catcher today, claiming Brayan (pronounced "Bryan") Pena off waivers from the Atlanta Braves. To make room for Pena on the 40 man roster, the Royals transferred P Luke Hudson to the 60 day disabled list. They will need to make a corresponding transaction on the 25 man roster.

Pena (no relation to Tony despite a resemblance in batting statistics) is a lifetime .228/.252/.315 hitter in 71 games and was 4-14 this season for Atlanta. He is a .314/.360/.405 hitter in the minors, including hitting .301 last season in AAA.
