News: Pena is out of the lineup Monday against the Brewers, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Impact: Pena has made five straight starts for the Reds, but will receive a day off Monday. Donald Lutz will take over at first base, while Devin Meroraco returns to his regular role catching after a day off Sunday. Although batting just .251 on the year, Pena has hit safely in all but two of his July starts.
