Texas State junior left fielder Daylan Pena (7) celebrates hitting his third home run during the game against Appalachian State, Saturday, March. 16, 2024, at Bobcat Ballpark.

On Tuesday, May 21, Texas State senior outfielder Daylan Pena announced via social media he will enter the transfer portal after three seasons as a Bobcat.

In three seasons as a Bobcat, Pena posted a respectable slash line of .262/.378/.450 (batting average/on-base/slugging percentage) with 25 home runs and 127 RBIs. In 2024, the 21-year-old hit .270/.373/.471 with seven home runs and 43 RBIs.

Tying the game with a home run in the ninth inning at Minute Maid Park, hitting two grand slams in one game and hitting three home runs in a game are among the many signature moments for Pena in his final season as a Bobcat.

Pena will have a year of eligibility at his next school.
