Marlins' Sandy Leon: Delivers three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and an additional RBI during Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Orioles.

The 32-year-old caught for Sandy Alcantara in Baltimore and launched his third home run of the season. Leon has struggled for the most part offensively with a .487 OPS in 2021, though he's 5-for-18 with a homer, a double, five RBI and three runs in his past six appearances. Neither he nor Jorge Alfaro have done enough at the plate to warrant fantasy consideration.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Smacks solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-7 extra-inning loss to Atlanta.

Leon went yard in the ninth inning for his second homer of the season. Playing time remains scarce for the backup catcher, who has just 17 at-bats in the last two weeks. He's batting .182 with seven RBI, seven runs scored and three doubles through 130 plate appearances overall.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Picking up rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Leon will catch for starting pitcher Jordan Holloway in Wednesday's game at Philadelphia, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Leon will crack the starting nine for only the second time in 12 games. Jorge Alfaro is locked in as the Marlins' clear top catcher, and opportunities will likely remain few and far between for Leon while Alfaro is healthy.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Moves into No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Leon's run as the Marlins' top catcher is over after Jorge Alfaro (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list earlier this week. Alfaro will pick up his second straight start Wednesday.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Retreats to bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Leon had started each of the last two games and went 1-for-8 with five strikeouts during that time. Chad Wallach will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon is not in the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Leon is 3-for-26 in his past nine games and will take a seat Sunday in Los Angeles. Chad Wallach will work behind the plate for Miami in the series finale.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Belts first long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over Arizona.

The backstop crushed a 417-foot shot in the second inning that ultimately provided the winning margin in the contest. Leon hasn't finished with a batting average above the Mendoza Line since 2017, so his .220 mark this season is somewhat of a pleasant surprise.

May 10, 2021 05:32 PM
Marlins' Sandy Leon: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Leon has gone hitless with four strikeouts in his last 11 at-bats and continues to alternate starts behind the dish. Chad Wallach will start at catcher and bat seventh.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon isn't starting Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Joe Frisaro of ManOnSecondBaseball.com reports.

Leon had started each of the last three games and went 1-for-11 with a run and a strikeout. Chad Wallach will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Getting bulk of work behind plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Leon will be behind the dish for the third game in a row and appears to have emerged as the team's primary backstop while Jorge Alfaro (hamstring) remains on the injured list. Through his first 10 games with Miami, Leon is batting .267 with two runs, no extra-base hits and no RBI.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Two hits in Marlins debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.

The veteran catcher joined the roster after Jorge Alfaro (hamstring) landed on the IL and made an immediate impact in his Miami debut. Leon is expected to split time with Chad Wallach behind the plate in Alfaro's absence, but if he keeps collecting hits, he could seize the starting role in the short term.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Contract selected by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon's contract was selected by the Marlins on Wednesday.

Leon was in camp as a non-roster invitee this spring and went 5-for-15 with two doubles, five RBI and four runs in 12 games. Although he was unable to break camp with the club, he'll join the major-league roster and will likely serve as catching depth behind Chad Wallach after Jorge Alfaro (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Marlins' Sandy Leon: Joining Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins on Sunday that includes an invitation to big-league camp, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Leon spent the 2020 campaign in Cleveland and struggled in 25 appearances with a .136/.296/.242 slash line and 21 strikeouts in 81 plate appearances. The 31-year-old will need a strong showing in spring training to have a chance of supplanting Chad Wallach or Jorge Alfaro.

Indians' Sandy Leon: Activated by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon was activated from the family medical emergency list Monday.

Leon was away from the team for six days, but he'll return to the active roster. Although he saw relatively consistent playing time before his absence, Roberto Perez has since reclaimed his spot as the team's primary catcher.

Indians' Sandy Leon: On family medical emergency list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon was placed on the family medical emergency list Tuesday.

Leon will miss at least three days. When he returns, he won't be the team's top catcher, as Roberto Perez returned from a shoulder injury in a corresponding move.

Indians' Sandy Leon: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

Leon has been in an 0-for-15 slump over his past six contests, so he'll retreat to the bench for the second time in the past three games. Beau Taylor is starting behind the dish, batting eighth.

August 6, 2020 01:56 PM
Indians' Sandy Leon: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Reds.

Leon will head to the bench after starting three straight games behind the dish, going 0-for-8 with a 2:4 BB:K in the process. Beau Taylor is starting at backstop in this one.

August 2, 2020 12:00 PM
Indians' Sandy Leon: Working in timeshare sans Perez
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Leon's workload has picked up since starting catcher Roberto Perez (shoulder) was shut down Wednesday and placed on the injured list, but the former still looks to be stuck in an even timeshare with Beau Taylor, which limits the fantasy utility of both players. Taylor and Leon have now alternated starts behind the dish over the past six games.

March 21, 2020 02:00 PM
Indians' Sandy Leon: Lock for roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon is a lock to begin the season on the roster, Joe Noga of Cleveland.com reports.

This doesn't come as any surprise given that the Indians don't have much talent at the position at the upper levels of the organization. What remains more difficult to project is just how much playing time Leon will receive behind presumed starter Roberto Perez. Leon is regarded as a strong framer behind the plate, which could help him earn extra at-bats when the season gets underway.

Indians' Sandy Leon: Get $2 million guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon signed a one-year, $2 million deal with Cleveland on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Cleveland clearly wanted to keep the catcher around after acquiring him in a trade from Boston earlier in the day. He lines up as the backup behind Roberto Perez.
