Royals taking aggressive approach with Tony Pena

Converted pitcher Tony Pena Jr. is already having success in the minors as a pitcher, making his tenth appearance as a pitcher on Sunday. He pitched three scoreless innings in his debut in Triple-A, striking out three and walking none.

In his ten appearances, he has a 2.33 ERA and is holding hitters to a .133 batting average. 

The Royals are already 23.5 games back and their bullpen owns the worst ERA in the AL (5.09). Bringing Pena up for the last few weeks of the season couldn't hurt the Royals as they look to bolster their pen for 2010.

Should the Royals call up Pena after just ten appearances as a pitcher?
