Top Dominic Leone News

  • Mariners' Dominic Leone: Goes to Mariners in waiver claim

    Leone was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Leone holds a 4.74 ERA and 44:20 K:BB across 43.2 innings of relief work for the Mets and Angels this season. It's a homecoming of sorts for Leone, who came up in the Mariners system and debuted for them back in 2014. He will be used in middle relief for the American League West leaders.

  • Angels' Dominic Leone: Waived by Halos

    The Angels placed Leone on waivers Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    Leone put up a 5.25 ERA and 1.83 WHIP across 12 innings since being acquired from the Mets at the trade deadline, and he'll now join five other Angels on the waiver wire as the team attempts to cut salary. Any team in search of bullpen depth will be able to simply claim the 31-year-old righty off waivers and add him to their active roster.

  • Angels' Dominic Leone: Grabs two-inning save

    Leone picked up the save Tuesday against the Giants. He allowed one run on one hit while striking out one over two innings.

    Leone was picked up by the Halos at the beginning of August via trade and converted on his first save opportunity of the season. While he's expected to remain a middle reliever moving forward, Leone owns a 1.80 ERA and a 19:6 K:BB over his last 15 appearances (15 innings), and he could be a name to monitor for high-leverage work if Carlos Estevez's struggles persist.

  • Angels' Dominic Leone: Acquired by Angels

    The Mets traded Leone to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Jeremiah Jackson, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Leone's overall numbers don't look great, but he's pitched to a 1.80 ERA over his last 12 appearances dating back to late June. The 31-year-old right-hander will likely slide into a middle-relief role with the playoff-hopeful Halos.

  • Mets' Dominic Leone: Collects win Wednesday

    Leone (1-2) picked up the win in Wednesday's victory over the Yankees, walking one and striking out one in a scoreless 10th inning.

    The right-hander needed 11 pitches (eight strikes) to get through the top of the frame, with his free pass being of the intentional variety. Leone has settled into a middle-relief role with the Mets, getting scored upon only once in his last eight appearances and posting a 1.93 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB through 9.1 innings over that stretch, but his lack of high-leverage usage limits his fantasy appeal -- he has zero saves or holds on the season.

  • Mets' Dominic Leone: Tagged with second loss

    Leone (0-2) took the loss Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on two hits over 1.1 innings in a 6-4 defeat.

    After the Mets tied the game in the sixth inning, Leone surrendered a two-run homer to Brandon Belt that would prove to be the difference in the loss. The 31-year-old Leone had been pitching well prior to Sunday, delivering four consecutive scoreless appearances while punching out seven over 4.1 innings. He now sports a 5.40 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB across 13.1 innings this season.

  • Mets' Dominic Leone: Takes loss in relief

    Leone (undisclosed) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals in the first game of a doubleheader after he gave up one run on three hits in two innings out of the bullpen.

    Leone experienced discomfort while warming up in the bullpen Friday, but his ability to cover two innings a day later implies that he's healthy again. The right-hander's appearance will officially be listed as having occurred Saturday, since the Mets and Nationals had their game suspended that day before they resumed the contest Sunday in the third inning with the score tied 1-1.

  • Mets' Dominic Leone: Being evaluated for discomfort

    Leone felt discomfort while warming up in the bullpen against the Nationals on Friday and is being evaluated, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Leone did not come in to pitch after feeling the discomfort, with Drew Smith getting the final out and picking up the save. For now, Leone should be considered day-to-day.

  • Mets' Dominic Leone: Gets MLB deal

    Leone signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Mets on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Leone opted out of his minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday and quickly landed a major-league deal with New York. The veteran reliever will provide a much-needed fresh arm for the Mets' bullpen.

  • Dominic Leone: Heads to free agency

    Leone opted out of his minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday and is now a free agent.

    Leone posted a 1.59 ERA and 15:2 K:BB over 11.1 innings at Triple-A Round Rock but was evidently told by the Rangers that a promotion wasn't imminent. The 31-year-old should be able to latch on with another club quickly, perhaps even on a major-league deal.

  • Rangers' Dominic Leone: Rejoins Texas, heading to minors

    Leone re-signed Wednesday with the Rangers on a minor-league contract and was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Texas released Leone from his minor-league deal last weekend, but the transaction looks to have been a procedural move. The 31-year-old struggled to throw strikes in the Cactus League and walked eight batters over 8.1 innings, and the Rangers will likely want to see more consistent control before adding him to the roster. Leone will need to be added to the 40-man roster if the Rangers do choose to give him a promotion to the major-league level at some point.

  • Rangers' Dominic Leone: Looks healthy for camp

    Leone (elbow) has made three Cactus League appearances to date, striking out one over three innings while allowing one earned run on one hit and three walks.

    Before inking a minor-league deal with Texas in February, Leone spent the 2022 season in the Giants organization. He logged a 4.01 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 49.1 innings for San Francisco before he was released in September while he was sidelined with right elbow inflammation. Though he's now healthy, Leone's lack of a 40-man roster spot could work against him in his bid to secure a spot in Texas' Opening Day bullpen.

  • Rangers' Dominic Leone: Signs minor-league deal with Texas

    Leone (elbow) joined the Rangers as a non-roster invitee Saturday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Leone recorded a passable 4.01 ERA in 49.1 innings for the Giants last year before ending the season on the injured list due to elbow inflammation. Assuming he's fully healthy, he'll compete for a lower-leverage relief role in camp.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Placed on injured list

    Leone (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Leone is dealing with inflammation in his right elbow. An exact return date is not yet known, but with the Giants all but out of the playoff picture they're have no reason to rush him back into action before the end of the season.

  • Dominic Leone: Let go by Giants

    Leone (elbow) was placed on unconditional release waivers Saturday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Leone landed on the 15-day injured list with an elbow injury Friday, but he'll be let go by the team a day later. It's not yet clear whether he'll be healthy enough to return to action prior to the end of the season if he's able to land a contract with another organization.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Command lacking in fifth loss

    Leone (4-5) took the extra-inning loss Saturday versus the Twins. He allowed an unearned run on three walks in one-third of an inning.

    Leone got the first out with a sacrifice, but that was his only success in this outing. He walked the next three batters, loading the bases and eventually forcing in the decisive run. Through 8.2 innings in August, Leone has allowed six runs (five earned) with an 11:7 K:BB. He has a 4.20 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 49:21 K:BB through 45 innings this year, adding three saves, 11 holds and four blown saves while maintaining a high-leverage role despite the lackluster ratios.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Collects extra-innings win

    Leone (4-4) allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in two-thirds of a scoreless inning, earning the extra-innings win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Leone cleaned things up after Alex Young allowed the Rockies to tie the game again in the 10th inning. The Giants went ahead again in the 11th, and Leone ended up with the win after Zack Littell closed out the contest. Through 7.1 innings in August, Leone has allowed five runs, 11 hits and three walks with nine strikeouts. He has a 4.33 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB through 43.2 innings overall, and he's added three saves, 11 holds and four blown saves while functioning as part of the setup mix ahead of closer Camilo Doval.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Slips up Wednesday

    Leone (3-4) allowed two runs on three hits and struck out one in one inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Leone gave up a single to Christian Walker and a double to Stone Garrett before allowing a two-run single to Jake McCarthy in the eighth inning. The Giants' offense couldn't bail him out, sending Leone to a loss for the first time since July 24. In 9.1 innings since the All-Star break, the setup man has struggled, allowing nine runs, 13 hits and four walks while striking out 10. He has a 4.50 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 45:16 K:BB while adding three saves, 11 holds and four blown saves in 42 innings this year. Considering his recent form, Leone is not a realistic threat to unseat closer Camilo Doval.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Allows run but earns save

    Leone allowed a run on one hit over one inning, but he earned the save in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Cubs.

    Yunior Marte got into trouble in the ninth inning, putting two on with no outs. Leone entered the game and allowed a single to load the bases. The Cubs were able to rally for three runs, with one charged to Leone on a Seiya Suzuki groundout, but the comeback effort fell just short. This was Leone's third save of the season, and he's added 11 holds and three blown saves in 40 appearances. The right-hander has a 3.96 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 38:14 K:BB through 36.1 innings. He'll likely be unavailable Sunday since he's pitched three days in a row.

  • Giants' Dominic Leone: Dealt third loss

    Leone (3-3) allowed a run on one hit in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Sunday versus the Dodgers.

    Leone was responsible for the first of the Dodgers' three runs in the seventh inning, and that was enough to stick the reliever with his second loss in as many outings. He's given up three runs in one inning across two appearances since the All-Star break, though that could be a product of facing the Dodgers' formidable offense. For the season, Leone has a 3.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB with 10 holds, two saves and three blown saves in 34 innings.
