Pena Passes Physical, Inks 3-year Deal with Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Tampa Bay's Carlos Pena passed his
physical.
This finalizes a three-year deal worth 24 million dollars.
The 29-year-old slugger had 48 homers and 121 RBIs _ both career
highs _ in 2007. He set a season franchise record for homers,
finishing with the fourth-highest total in the majors behind Alex
Rodriguez, Prince Fielder and Ryan Howard.
Pena also batted a career-best .282, scored a team-high 99 runs
and became the first player to hit 40-plus homers the season after
being released by another team. He signed with the Rays last winter
after spending most of 2006 in the minors with Boston and the New
York Yankees.
