Red Sox's Jose De Leon: Lands minors deal with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox.

De Leon will be moving on to his fourth MLB organization after he was released by the Reds just over a week ago. After being demoted to Triple-A Louisville in early May, De Leon made 12 appearances out of the bullpen with the affiliate, logging a 4.63 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 11.2 innings. Expect him to report to Triple-A Worcester to begin his tenure with the Red Sox organization.

Jose De Leon: Released by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was released by the Reds on Friday.

De Leon opened the year on the active roster but was optioned in early May and designated for assignment in mid-July. He'll now leave in search of other opportunities, though he's likely to be stuck looking for a minor-league deal as he owns a career 8.44 ERA in 48 innings at the highest level.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Loses 40-man spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds designated De Leon for assignment Monday.

De Leon earned a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster, but he stuck around with the big club for a little over a month before he was optioned to Triple-A Louisville after posting an 8.35 ERA across his 18.1 innings out of the bullpen. The 28-year-old right-hander was dominant over his last nine relief outings at Louisville (0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, 14:3 K:BB in 9.1 innings), and that improved form coupled with his prospect pedigree could be enough for another organization to put in a waiver claim for him now that Cincinnati has dropped him from its 40-man roster.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Sent down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

De Leon had allowed at least two runs in each of his last three relief outings, and he has an 8.35 ERA and 1.80 ERA in 18.1 innings to begin the season. The right-hander lost out on his rotation spot in early April when Sonny Gray returned to action, and he's now off the big-league roster altogether for the time being. De Leon will attempt to sort things out in the minors after left-hander Cionel Perez was recalled Wednesday.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon will pitch out of the bullpen going forward, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

De Leon served as a member of the starting rotation for his first two appearances and posted a 7.71 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in 9.1 innings to begin the year. However, manager David Bell confirmed Wednesday that De Leon will move to a relief role since Sonny Gray (back) is slated to make his season debut Saturday. De Leon is unlikely to factor into high-leverage situations in the near future.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Shelled in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon (0-1) allowed six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out nine over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

The righty threw 61 of his 89 pitches for strikes but was unable to build on his last start. The 28-year-old saw limited action in 2020 and will have a lot of attention on him moving forward as the Reds decide whether to keep him in a starting role or move him to the bullpen upon teammate Sonny Gray's return.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Could be bumped from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon will start Sunday against the Diamondbacks, but he is at risk of getting bumped to the bullpen with Sonny Gray returning next week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

De Leon pitched well against the Pirates in his last time out, but part of the Reds' decision might come down to who is more capable of pitching in relief, with the Reds not planning on moving to a six-man rotation. The decision essentially comes down to either De Leon or Jeff Hoffman.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon allowed two runs on three hits and two walks over five innings in Monday's win over the Pirates. He struck out nine batters but did not factor in the decision.

De Leon got off to a rocky start, coughing up a pair of solo homers to Phillip Evans and Colin Moran in the first inning. He settled in and threw 54-of-81 pitches for strikes on the night. As long as Sonny Gray (back) is unavailable, De Leon should continue seeing action in the rotation. Expect him to face the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Sunday.

Reds' Jose De Leon: To serve as spot starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon is expected to be in the Reds' Opening Day rotation, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

De Leon probably won't last long in the rotation, as he'll likely head to the bullpen as soon as Sonny Gray (back), Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) or Tejay Antone (hip) is ready to go. He could a worthy streaming option to start the season as he'll line up to face the Pirates in his first start, but it's hard to have too much confidence in a player who owns an 8.49 ERA in 29.2 major-league innings.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Granted additional option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon will have a fourth minor-league option for 2021, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

De Leon was battling for a back-end spot in the starting rotation during spring training but wasn't particularly sharp during four Cactus League appearances (three starts). The right-hander has posted a 6.39 ERA and 1.58 WHIP this spring, and the arbitrator's decision to grant De Leon an additional minor-league option makes it likely that he'll begin the year at Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Struggles against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon gave up four runs over 4.2 innings against the Brewers on Saturday, allowing three hits (including a homer to Omar Narvaez) and three walks while striking out three.

De Leon, who is battling for the fifth-starter job for the Reds and might be out of options, pending an arbitrator's decision, now has a 6.39 ERA over 12.2 innings this spring, albeit with 17 strikeouts.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Impresses in winter ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds are hopeful that De Leon can be a big contributor out of the bullpen after his dominant stretch in the Puerto Rican Winter League this winter, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

De Leon is out of options this spring, but the team was already excited about his progress at its alternate training camp site last fall. He has former high prospect pedigree but hasn't been able to stay healthy long enough to fulfill his talent expectations.

Reds' Jose De Leon: To IL with groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right groin strain, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

He came into Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader and walked two batters without recording an out before exiting with the injury. Given that there are less than two weeks remaining in the season, this injury likely means the end of De Leon's 2020 campaign.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Suffers groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon suffered a groin injury during Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The Reds have yet to release a timetable for De Leon's return. More details should become known after further testing takes place.

Reds' Jose De Leon: Leaves with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon left Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates due to an undisclosed injury, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

De Leon walked a pair of batters and left the contest immediately after with the team trainer. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

September 11, 2020 07:20 PM
Reds' Jose De Leon: Back on major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled by the Reds on Friday.

De Leon was sent down by Cincinnati on Thursday, but he'll return to the majors just one day later after Tyler Thornburg (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. De Leon has largely struggled out of the bullpen as he's allowed 12 runs on five hits and eight walks while striking out eight over four innings.

September 10, 2020 05:16 PM
Reds' Jose De Leon: Sent down Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was optioned to the Reds' alternate training site Thursday.

He will stick on the taxi squad for the rest of this road trip, which ends Sunday. De Leon has given up 12 earned runs in four innings this season.

September 8, 2020 05:56 PM
Reds' Jose De Leon: Back with big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was recalled by the Reds on Tuesday.

De Leon has had a disastrous time in his three outings this season, allowing 12 runs in four innings while walking eight batters. His career ERA now sits at 9.11, though that comes in a small sample of just 27.2 innings.

September 6, 2020 03:32 PM
Reds' Jose De Leon: Shifts back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds optioned De Leon to their alternate training site Saturday.

De Leon was the odd man out after Cincinnati reduced its roster from 29 men to 28 following Friday's doubleheader with the Pirates. The 28-year-old has made three relief appearances for Cincinnati this season, giving up 12 runs on five hits and eight walks over four innings.

September 4, 2020 12:52 PM
Reds' Jose De Leon: Recalled as extra man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Leon was called up to serve as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Pirates, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

De Leon has made three appearances for the Reds this season but has had very little success, allowing 12 runs in four innings while walking eight batters. He'll likely be limited to low-leverage work while he remains with the team.
