Peña led the American League in home runs in 2009 as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays. The slugging first-baseman was brought in to provide veteran leadership for a young 2013 Astros club but was released in mid-season after hitting .209 with 8 homers and 25 RBIs in 85 games. Released by the Texas Rangers a year later, the 2008 Gold Glove Award winner landed a job as a television analyst with MLB Network.
