Marlins pitcher Brad Penny made his first appearance in the major leagues since 2012 and his first start since 2011 and went home with the win as the Fish won 4-3 over the Reds in Cincinnati. Penny went five innings, allowed four hits, walked four, and struck out three.

Penny, 36, has been well-traveled since his last appearance in the majors in 2012 with the Giants as a reliever. He signed a minor league deal with the Royals in January and was released in early March. The Marlins decided to pick him up on a minor league contract in June. He made two starts at Single-A Jupiter in early July and five with Triple-A New Orleans between July 13 and August 4, posting a combined 3.05 ERA with a 30/9 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings.

    Penny’s control wasn’t as sharp as it had been in the minors but all things considered, he pitched OK. Always nice to see an old warhorse like Penny come back and content. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to get back, and I doubt if he’ll stick around for long. But, it’s always heartening to see hard work and determination pay off.

    I picked Penny up as a free agent in MLB2K12 fir XBOX, he’s 10-1 and third in all star voting, which is the extent of my giving a crap about Brad Penny.
