Outfielder Pena called up from Triple-A
The D-backs announced Tuesday that they have called up outfielder Wily Mo Pena from Triple-A Reno after outrighting infielder Sean Burroughs to Reno on Monday.

Pena hit .363 with 52 runs, 17 doubles, 21 home runs and 63 RBIs in 63 games with Reno this season. Before joining the D-backs, he led the Pacific Coast League in home runs and slugging percentage (.726), and was tied for first in RBIs.

The 30-year-old Burroughs, returning to the big leagues for the first time since 2006, hit .250 (6-for-24) with a run and a double in 23 games for Arizona.

Pena -- who has also spent time with the Red Sox, Nationals and Reds in parts of seven seasons of service -- is a career .253 big league hitter with 196 runs, 67 doubles, 77 homers and 225 RBIs in 560 games.

The 29-year-old Pena last appeared in the Majors with the Nationals in 2008, and signed with the D-backs as a Minor League free agent on Dec. 9, 2010.

Arizona is in action Tuesday night against the Royals in Kansas City.
