LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Carlos Pena was unconditionally released Sunday by the Detroit Tigers after the first baseman struggled during spring training.
Pena batted .160 with one home run in 50 at-bats in exhibition games.
He split last season between Detroit and Triple-A Toledo. He hit .235 with 18 homers in 79 games with the Tigers and .311 with 12 homers with the Mud Hens.
Pena signed a $2.8 million, one-year contract that wasn't guaranteed and will receive $688,525 in termination pay.
