News: Pena (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins. Impact: A bout of hamstring tightness forced Pena from Friday's game and kept him out of the lineup Saturday, but he did single in a pinch-hit appearance to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games. He was clearly still in some pain however, and he will not be able to catch Johnny Cueto as per usual Sunday, so those duties will fall to regular backstop Devin Mesoraco.(RotoWire, )

News: Pena left Friday's game against the Marlins with left hamstring tightness, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: Pena singled in the bottom of the second inning to extend his hitting streak to 12 games, matching a career high, but he pulled up a bit as he made his way to first. The Reds are saying Pena's removal was strictly precautionary, so it would seem he's no worse than day-to-day ahead of Saturday's tilt.(RotoWire, )
