Orlando Pena was never an All-Star, but he did pitch in the majors for 14 seasons (from 1958 with the Reds to 1975 with the Angels). He would pitch for eight different organization, and retired with a career 56-77 record, 103 ERA+ and 1.270 WHIP.

He would actually win 20 games once, in 1955 while playing with D-League Daytona Beach Islanders. That season the 21 year old Pena would go 21-8 with a 1.96 ERA and 1.138 WHIP. In 1956 he would pitch for B-League High Point-Thomasville and go 19-12 with a 2.42 ERA and 1.241 WHIP. He would then pitch two season for AAA Havana (back when we had teams in Cuba), and by 1958 would be on the Reds roster.
