Orlando, FL-- The Red Sox beat writer for the Boston Globe, and a friend of Carlos Pena from his college days, believes Pena could return to the Rays.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, told 10 News Wednesday, that he thinks there's a real chance Pena could remain with the Rays.
"It's very possible that Carlos could opt for a one-year contract," said Cafardo. "He'll try and re-invent himself as a hitter, after his .196 season in 2010. And he really likes the Tampa Bay area."
Besides hitting .196 last season, Pena had 28 home runs and 84 rbi's, his lowest power totals during his 4 years with the Rays.
