Leone will begin the season on Cleveland's 30-man roster, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Leone was a non-roster invitee during camp, but he impressed enough to earn a spot in the bullpen ahead of Opening Day on Friday. The right-hander is unlikely to serve in higher-leverage situations after posting a 5.53 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 40.2 innings with the Cardinals in 2019.
