Guardians' Jose Tena: Sent down to Triple-A
Tena was optioned to Triple-A Columbus by the Guardians on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Tena managed to reach Columbus last season, but he doesn't turn 22 until next week and could stand to work on his plate discipline. The infielder has fanned 11 times in 21 Grapefruit League appearances.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Jose Tena: Promoted to Triple-A
Tena was promoted to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.
The 21-year-old middle infielder has spent all season with Double-A Akron, recording a .710 OPS along with 66 RBI.

Guardians' Jose Tena: Added to 40-man roster
Tena was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Friday.
Tena had a strong showing as a 20-year-old at High-A, hitting .281/.331/.467, but he finds himself buried on the organizational depth chart, as Cleveland is loaded with middle infielders in the upper levels. He should head to Double-A next year.... See More ... See Less
