White Sox's Pena back on track after setback

By Doug Padilla

DETROIT – White Sox relief pitcher Tony Pena, who has been on the disabled list with right elbow tendinitis since May 29, is making progress since having a setback on his rehab assignment.

Pena threw 34 pitches Saturday and if he comes out of that feeling fine his rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte will be reactivated.

Pena started the season as the middle-innings right-hander out of the bullpen but was ineffective before heading to the DL. Brian Bruney has since delivered in Pena’s former role.
