Rays 1B Pena out vs. White Sox with scratched cornea
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay's Carlos Pena was scratched from the lineup for Game 2 of the Rays' first-round playoff series against the Chicago White Sox because of slightly blurred vision in his left eye Friday.
Pena fielded grounders and took batting practice Friday. Less than an hour before game time the Rays announced he would not be in the lineup.
"Still a little blurry, but a lot better than yesterday," Pena said before batting practice.
