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.

August 18, 2020 06:16 PM
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.

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.

December 2, 2019 01:12 PM
Indians' Sandy Leon: Traded to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon was traded to the Indians on Monday in exchange for Adenys Bautista.

Leon served as the backup catcher for the Red Sox, and he will likely take on a similar role for the Indians behind Roberto Perez (ankle), who had surgery in October but is expected to be ready for spring training. Over 65 games in 2019, Leon hit .192/.251/.297 with just five home runs and 19 RBI.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Scores, drives in run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 2-for-3 with a double, RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 10-5 loss to the Red Sox.

The two hits nearly matched Leon's output from the entire month of August (three). Sunday's start was Leon's first of September, and his playing time behind the dish will likely remain scarce so long as Boston remains alive in the playoff hunt.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Gets start in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Orioles, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Leon will crack the lineup for just the second time in seven games while top backstop Christian Vazquez shifts over to first base. Vazquez has shined both at the plate and behind the dish this season, so Leon isn't expected to see his workload pick up over the final few weeks, especially with the Red Sox trying to chase down a wild-card spot.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon launched a two-run home run his only at-bat during Thursday's victory over the Yankees.

Pinch hitting for Mookie Betts, Leon launched his fourth homer of the season, this time a two-run blast off Austin Romine in the eighth inning. The 30-year-old, who serves as the backup catcher to Christian Vazquez, is hitting .207/.273/.328 with four home runs, 15 RBI and 10 runs scored over 116 limited plate appearances this season.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit home run Saturday against the Orioles.

Leon took Stevie Wilkerson deep in the ninth inning to record his third home run of the season. He took advantage of a position player on the mound, cranking a 55 mph fastball out to center field. Leon is firmly behind Christian Vazquez on the depth chart and is hitting just .207/.276/.306 across 126 plate appearances this season.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Leon was behind the plate for each of the past three games but managed only one hit across 11 at-bats. Even with the recent uptick in action, Leon has still been included in the lineup just four times over the last 13 contests. He's the clear No. 2 backstop behind Christian Vazquez.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Third start in four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Leon has seen a mild spike in his workload of late, as he'll draw his third start of the series Sunday. It's worth noting, however, that top backstop Christian Vazquez has filled in as designated hitter for the injured J.D. Martinez (back) in two of those contests. Once Martinez is back in commission, Leon's usage could take a hit.
