Leon underwent sports hernia surgery Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Leon is expected to be sidelined for approximately 6-to-8 weeks following the procedure, and he'll be unable to attend major-league spring training as a non-roster invitee. The 24-year-old showed improvement at Triple-A Sugar Land last year, slashing .228/.365/.431 with 17 homers, 71 runs, 63 RBI and 38 stolen bases, and he'll likely be in the mix to make his big-league debut at some point in 2023.
