MLB The Show has made an exciting announcement.
Each year, the game features a number of certain retired players who appear as they did when they were in their primes.
The same can be said for some current players who are past their primes but have versions of their prime selves in the game.
Yesterday, MLB The Show announced the addition of another legend.
Slugger Carlos Pena is the newest addition.
On Twitter, the announcement was made, which also featured an animated version of the former All-Star and Silver Slugger in his Tampa Bay Rays threads during the prime of his career.

Pena made his MLB debut in 2001 with the Texas Rangers.

He also made brief stops with the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, and Kansas City Royals.
Pena spent the majority of his time with the Rays, having played five seasons in a Tampa Bay uniform.
The veteran was a part of the 2008 team that made a surprise run to the World Series.
Pena is just the latest addition to the game, and more exciting features will soon be revealed.NEXT: The WBC Creates Opportunities For Several Cardinals Pitchers
