Reds' Jose De Leon: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

De Leon was acquired from the Rays in November and had an outside chance at cracking the Opening Day roster, but he's now set to begin the season -- whenever that occurs -- in the minors. The 27-year-old had a 3.51 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 73:27 K:BB over 51.1 innings at Triple-A last season, though he also had three big-league appearances.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Sent to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was acquired by the Reds from the Rays on Wednesday for cash and a player to be named later.

De Leon spent most of the season at Triple-A Durham, but he did have seven strikeouts with one runs allowed over four frames with the Rays. The 27-year-old made 13 starts at Triple-A and had a 3.51 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 73:27 K:BB across 51.1 innings, though he's more likely to serve as a multi-inning reliever in the majors.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old righty has a 3.51 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 73:27 K:BB in 51.1 innings at Triple-A, working primarily as a starter. He has a 6.35 ERA in 22.2 innings in his big-league career. Look for him to work as a multi-inning reliever.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Callup expected Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon is slated to be added to the major-league roster Saturday now that Triple-A Durham's season has ended, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

De Leon was up briefly for the Rays in August, generating a 3.00 ERA across three innings over a pair of appearances. The right-hander made a successful return from Tommy John surgery this season at the Triple-A level, posting a 2-1 record, 3.51 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 73:27 K:BB across 51.1 innings while making 13 starts for the Bulls overall. He'll add depth to the Rays' staff down the stretch and will become the franchise-record 37th player on the active roster once he's officially activated.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Optioned down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

De Leon threw one inning and was the pitcher of record in Thursday's victory in Houston, his first big-league win since 2017. He was swapped out for a fresher arm in Ricardo Pinto, but De Leon will be eligible to return when Durham's season ends.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Notches first win in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (1-0) was credited with the win over the Astros on Thursday, allowing an unearned run on a hit and a walk over an inning. He struck out one.

De Leon surrendered an unearned run courtesy of an error by third baseman Matt Duffy in the seventh inning, but by virtue of having recorded an out to close out the bottom of the sixth before the Rays mounted a three-run comeback in the next frame, the right-hander became the pitcher of record. It was De Leon's first big-league win since 2017, marking the culmination of his long road back from Tommy John surgery in March 2018.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Recalled by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled by the Rays on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

De Leon has only appeared once for the Rays this season but has a solid 3.65 ERA in 49.1 innings for Triple-A Durham. He's offset a poor 12.5 percent walk rate with a strong 32.9 percent strikeout rate. He'll give the Rays extra bullpen depth for the stretch run. Mike Brosseau was optioned in a corresponding move.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Wednesday's loss to the Padres, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

De Leon was recalled prior to the contest and made his first major-league appearance since 2017, allowing one run on one hit hit with three strikeouts and two walks over two frames. The 27-year-old returns to Durham, where he has a 3.65 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 64:24 K:BB over 44.1 innings this season.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

De Leon returns to the major-league bullpen after being sent down Aug. 1. The right-hander hasn't made a big-league appearance since May 2017, but he owns an ERA of 3.65 with a 64:24 K:BB in 44.1 innings pitched for Triple-A Durham this season. Avisail Garcia (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Goes back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned De Leon to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

He'll cede his spot on the active roster and in the Tampa Bay bullpen to Nick Anderson, whom the Rays acquired from the Marlins on Wednesday. De Leon was recalled ahead of Wednesday's game against the Red Sox to give the Rays a fresh arm, but he ultimately went unused in the 8-5 win. The 26-year-old right-hander will thus have to wait a little longer before making his first big-league appearance since May 2017.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

De Leon will provide an extra bullpen arm for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox after the Rays traded away a trio of relievers earlier in the day. He's spent most of the season with Durham, compiling a 3.43 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 58:23 K:BB in 39.1 innings.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

De Leon has been limited to rehab action since undergoing Tommy John surgery last March. The 26-year-old has yet to establish himself at the big-league level, recording a 6.86 ERA in just 19.2 innings of work, and he won't get the chance to improve those numbers just yet. He did have at least a small amount of hype as a prospect thanks to a strong changeup, so he could make an impact on the Rays' roster at some point in the second half, either as a starter or a multi-inning relief arm following one of the team's many openers.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Racks up strikeouts in rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) recorded nine strikeouts and allowed four earned runs on seven hits, a walk and a wild pitch over 4.2 innings, taking the loss for Triple-A Durham against Charlotte on Monday.

As his final line implies, De Leon's night was a mixed bag. However, one of the positives besides his nine strikeouts was that he worked up to 83 pitches. Monday's outing was De Leon's 10th overall in his rehab assignment, and he encouragingly managed to build on the seven whiffs he'd recorded his previous time out last Tuesday against Charlotte as well. De Leon's potential activation date remains unclear, but given his pitch count against the Knights, he's pretty well stretched out at this point.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Still plugging along in rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) allowed an earned run on four hits, three walks and a hit batsman over two-plus innings in his most recent rehab outing for Triple-A Durham against Pawtucket on Wednesday.

De Leon had considerable location issues, leading to his exit after 63 pitches three batters into the third inning. The outing was De Leon's second since he was granted an extension on his rehab assignment June 8, so a decision on his activation is looming. The rehabbing right-hander has logged nine minor-league appearances overall during his recovery, posting a 3.96 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 25 innings.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Gets extension on rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) has been granted one of three potential rehab assignment extensions for which pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery are eligible, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

De Leon has already logged seven rehab outings, generating a 3.72 ERA in those appearances. The right-hander worked up to 63 pitches in his most recent start Friday, and the Rays would likely want to see him stretch out past the 80-pitch mark before activating him.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Mows down six in latest rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) recorded six strikeouts and allowed two earned runs on three hits, a walk and a wild pitch over four innings in Triple-A Durham's win over Gwinnett on Friday.

De Leon worked up to 63 pitches in the outing, a new high-water mark for him in his rehab. The right-hander also established new benchmarks in innings and strikeouts, and he now has seven minor-league outings under his belt overall. It remains to be seen if De Leon is given at least one more opportunity to stretch out before activation is considered.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Pitches to contact in latest rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) allowed four earned runs on four hits, a walk and a hit batsman across three innings in Triple-A Durham's win over Columbus on Saturday. He struck out three.

The outing snapped a three-appearance scoreless streak for De Leon, and he gave up plenty of hard contact in the process. The right-hander allowed a double, a triple and a three-run homer during his time on the mound and worked up to 57 pitches overall. It was the highest pitch count yet for De Leon during his rehab, and it remains to be seen if he'll log at least one more minor-league appearance before activation is considered.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Takes another step in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) fired two scoreless innings in Triple-A Durham's win over Charlotte on Monday, allowing two hits and three walks while recording two strikeouts.

De Leon technically upped his pitch count over his last rehab start, as he fired 53 offerings overall after hitting 52 last Tuesday against Norfolk. Even more important was the fact De Leon extended his Triple-A scoreless streak to 7.2 innings across three starts, and to 10.2 innings overall at the minor-league level. The right-hander may only need one more rehab appearance before being considered for activation.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Another strong rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) allowed a hit and two walks over 2.2 scoreless innings in Triple-A Durham's win over Norfolk on Tuesday in his second rehab start with the Bulls. He struck out two.

De Leon was impressive for the second time in as many starts at the Triple-A level, and he's now logged 5.2 scoreless frames with the Bulls in his pair of rehab outings. De Leon hit 52 pitches in Tuesday's appearance, upping his overall count by four over his first trip to the mound with Durham.

Rays' Jose De Leon: Stellar in Triple-A rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (elbow) fired three scoreless innings in Triple-A Durham's win over Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, allowing two hits and issuing a walk while recording five strikeouts.

It was about as strong an outing for De Leon as the Rays could have hoped for in the bump up to the Triple-A level in his rehab. The right-hander worked up to 48 pitches, 32 which he got into the strike zone. De Leon now has back-to-back three-inning scoreless efforts, and the amount of bats he missed Wednesday was especially encouraging. The 26-year-old is slated to remain at Durham for the duration of his rehab, which should encompass the remainder of May at minimum.
