PENA RELEASED, GLOVER BACK WITH CHIEFS
The Washington Nationals released outfielder WILLY MO PENA today after he refused his assignment to Syracuse. PENA, 26, has played in over 500 games in the major league with three different teams, Reds, Red Sox and Nationals since 2002.
In addition the Nationals assigned righthanded pitcher GARY GLOVER back to their minor league camp today. GLOVER, 32, pitched for the Chiefs in 1999 and 2000 as a starter.
GLOVER will compete for a bullpen spot in Syracuse.
