  • Leon went 0-for-1 with three walks in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Twins. Leon rejoined the Guardians -- the team he spent the 2020 season with -- in a trade with the Reds on Tuesday, and he's promptly played in three straight games. The veteran catcher is still in search of his first hit, going 0-for-4 with three walks and a strikeout so far. He'll likely split time with Luke Maile while Austin Hedges (concussion) is on the injured list. Leon hit a meager .222/.321/.306 in 26 games with Triple-A Louisville, so he shouldn't be expected to provide much offense in the majors.

  • Leon was sent from the Reds to the Guardians on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Leon will make the short trip across Ohio to play for the team he hit .136/.296/.242 for in 25 games in 2020. He's yet to appear in a major-league game this season, though that will change Tuesday, as he'll bat eighth and start behind the plate in the first half of the doubleheader against the Twins.

  • Leon signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Leon opted out of his contract with the Guardians at the end of March after failing to land a spot on the team's Opening Day roster, and he'll now presumably head to Triple-A Louisville. He appeared in 84 major-league games with the Marlins last year and should be one of the top candidates to be called up if Tyler Stephenson or Aramis Garcia deal with injuries this year.

  • Leon exercised an opt-out clause in his contract Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Leon went 0-for-9 with an RBI, a walk and three strikeouts across six spring games this year, and he was informed Thursday that he wouldn't make the Guardians' Opening Day roster. Rather than reporting to the minors, the 33-year-old will become a free agent ahead of the regular season in hopes that he'll be able to land a spot elsewhere on a major-league roster.

  • The Guardians signed Leon on Monday to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training. Austin Hedges is the only MLB-ready catcher left on Cleveland's 40-man roster after the team declined Roberto Perez's $7 million option for 2022 earlier this month, so Leon helps restore some depth at the position. Though he won't be added to the roster immediately, Leon should get the opportunity to compete for the No. 2 spot on the Guardians' depth chart at catcher heading into Opening Day. Leon logged 220 plate appearances for the Marlins in 2021, slashing .183/.237/.267 with four home runs, 15 runs and 14 RBI.
