A stocky, 5-foot-11, 205-pound catcher, Pena is a strong catch-and-throw backstop who profiles well defensively. He also showed some feel to hit during his first two years with Manhattan in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, but that ability didn't show up in the same way this spring. Pena hit just .255/.365/.411 with six home runs in 2018 after hitting .330 or better in each of his first two seasons. Pena has plus raw power and homered nine times as a freshman. He has hit with pop in wood-bat leagues as well, most notably when he recorded a .282/.342/.485 slash line with four home runs and nine doubles in 30 games in the Valley League in 2016. He held his own in the Cape Cod League in 2017 but didn't have the same power, hitting .275/.344/.388 with two home runs in 24 games. With a pull-oriented approach and a down spring, scouts see Pena as having a backup profile. He does, however, have the soft hands, reliable receiving ability and arm strength to project as a plus defender.
