Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Offensive onslaught persists with triple, homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 2-for-4 with a triple, a homer, two RBI and a run Wednesday against the Giants.

After a rare hitless game Tuesday, Leon kept the bat going with another startling offensive performance. What he's done over 23 games this season is nothing short of remarkable -- .435 with three homers, nine doubles, a triple and 15 RBI -- but we're talking about a guy whose three most recent Triple-A batting averages are .243, .263 and .229. If you've got him, ride the hot streak, but know that it's not likely to last much longer.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Continues banner season with four-RBI day
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Leon went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and three-run homer in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Yankees.

The improbable story that is Leon's 2016 season at the plate continues, as he practically defeated the Yankees single-handedly. His fourth-inning RBI single brought home Jackie Bradley, and his 424-foot shot in the sixth drove in Bradley and Aaron Hill, giving the Red Sox a 5-1 lead. Leon now has three straight two-hit efforts and is slashing .458/.500/.712 over 59 at-bats this season.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Leon is out of Wednesday's lineup, the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports.

This comes on the same day that it was reported Leon would be the primary catcher going forward, but of course he had caught the last three contests so he was due for a day off. Ryan Hanigan will start behind the dish and hit ninth Wednesday, but Leon is expected to get around four starts per week going forward.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Will be the primary catcher
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Leon will catch at least three out of every five games, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

With Ryan Hanigan rejoining the Red Sox after a stint on the disabled list and Christian Vazquez optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, manager John Farrell sees Leon has the team's primary catcher. With that said, Hanigan will be in the box Wednesday night when knuckleballer and AL All-Star Steven Wright pitches.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Four hits in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Leon went 4-for-5 with three doubles and a run in Monday's 12-5 victory over Texas. In 15 games since he was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, he's 20-for-40 with nine extra-base hits and nine RBI.

Leon was an emergency addition a month ago after both Ryan Hanigan (neck) and Blake Swihart (ankle) were injured in the same game. One month later, his unprecedented fluency with the bat has earned him a spot on Boston's roster going forward. Out of minor league options, Leon would likely have been claimed if the Red Sox wanted to send him back to Pawtucket, so when Hanigan was activated off the DL on Monday the organization chose to keep Leon and option Christian Vazquez to Triple-A. Be aware that Leon's career MLB average prior to this season was .186, so his surge in 2016 should be viewed with great circumspection. He and Hanigan will share the catching job for the time being.
