Leone is 0-5 with an 8.40 ERA in 13 appearances with the Mariners and D-Backs this season.

    Diamondbacks RP Dominic Leone tossed out after HBP

    Diamondbacks reliever Dominic Leone was ejected from the game Wednesday for what home plate umpire Vic Carapazza believed to be throwing at Marlins hitter Christian Yelich, who was beaned. The hit-by-pitch was likely a response to Miami starter Jose Fernandez planting a 97 mph fastball onto the helmet of Arizona batter David Peralta the previous inning.

    D-Backs' Stewart hopeful Dominic Leone can return to 2014 form

    Newly acquired Diamondbacks reliever Dominic Leone has struggled this season, going 0-4 with a 6.35 ERA in 10 relief appearances. However, Arizona is banking on him finding the form he had last season, when he went 8-2 with a 2.17 ERA in 57 relief outings for the Mariners. "Last year, you look at his numbers and he's 8-2 with a 2.17 [ERA], and we believe that that is the pitcher that we're going to get," Arizona manager Dave Stewart said, per MLB.com.

    Diamondbacks trade Mark Trumbo to Mariners in six-player deal

    The Mariners have acquired outfielder Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuno from the Diamondbacks for catcher Welington Castillo, pitcher Dominic Leone, infielder Jack Reinheimer and outfielder Gabby Guerrero. Trumbo is hitting .259/.299/.506 this season. Trumbo figures to add power to a Seattle lineup that has been about average this year as the Mariners have a collective .395 slugging percentage. "You look where we're at offensively and we're not doing exactly what I thought we'd do or what most people thought we'd do, and Trumbo is a guy that brings an awful lot to the table," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said, per MLB.com. "He's a big power hitter that will bat somewhere in the middle of the lineup and will be very good insurance for the ballclub." Late last week, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported the Diamondbacks were potentially interested in dealing Trumbo, who has nine home runs and 23 RBI this season. Zduriencik said Trumbo can play either corner-outfield spot, as well as designated hitter and first base. "We'll have a rotation system where he'll get his ABs along with Nelson Cruz and the other corner players," Zduriencik said. "That will still unfold. More than anything else, to bring the bat to this organization is what we're desiring to do."

    Mariners reliever Dominic Leone walks three, including go-ahead run

    Mariners relief pitcher Dominic Leone struggled to find the strike zone in Seattle's 6-3 loss to the Indians in 12 innings on Saturday. Leone walked leadoff man Lonnie Chisenhall in the 12th before giving up a double to Jose Ramirez with one out. After intentionally walking Jason Kipnis, Leone got Carlos Santana to pop out to third. But again, Leone couldn't find the zone as he walked Michael Brantley on four pitches to give up the go-ahead run. "What else is there to say? Unfortunately it was just one of those days where I didn't have it," Leone said to MLB.com. "I told [catcher Welington Castillo] thanks for sticking in there for me because everything was flying out." David Murphy would plate two more in the inning on an RBI single. Leone, now 0-4, moved his ERA to 7.71 in 9 1/3 innings of work.
