Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Makes start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 8-0 loss to the Yankees.

Leon had his contract purchased Tuesday in a move designed to help Boston's struggling rotation improve. After Tuesday's game, Boston's starters have a league-worst 7.18 ERA. Whether Leon's arrival means he'll get more starts than Christian Vazquez is unclear, but with either catcher, don't expect much offense.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Rejoining Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon's contract was purchased by the Red Sox on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Leon lost the backup catcher job to Blake Swihart this spring, but the Red Sox have already changed plans in an attempt to help their struggling pitching staff. Leon could start right away, as he's Tuesday's starter Chris Sale's preferred backstop.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Leon opted to accept his assignment to Triple-A after passing through waivers untouched, allowing the backstop to retain his $2.475 million salary for 2019. He'll serve as organizational catching depth.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Passes through waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon passed through waivers without being claimed Tuesday, Evan Drellich of WEEI Boston reports.

Leon has a good reputation as a pitch framer, but no team felt like creating a roster spot for a player who hit .177/.232/.279 last season. By all accounts Leon is expected head to Triple-A Pawtucket and wait for an injury to open up an opportunity to return to the big leagues.

Red Sox's Sandy Leon: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leon was placed on waivers Sunday, Evan Drellich of WEEI reports.

Leon is reportedly being shopped. He may wind up being moved for very little return or simply claimed off waivers, as there likely isn't much market for a catcher who hit .177/.232/.279 last season. Blake Swihart appears to have won Boston's backup catcher job.
