RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Back in 2012, Leon seemed like he might have a future behind the plate. He hit better than .300 across three minor league levels and didn't look out of place during a big league callup. Given Wilson Ramos' inability to stay healthy, the door was open for him to establish himself as Ramos' top backup and a potential Francisco Cervelli-like modest fantasy asset. Two years later though, following a .177 showing at Double-A and .229 performance at Triple-A, Leon's status has dropped to that of pure organizational depth, a guy you call up when you have no other options. He's got a decent defensive reputation, but unless Leon finds those base hits he lost after 2012, that status isn't going to change.

2013

Entering 2012, Leon figured to be a future backup, a catcher with solid defensive skills but not much of a stick, but after hitting .322 across three minor league levels he might have changed that perception. With Wilson Ramos and Kurt Suzuki ahead of him on the depth chart he will likely get a full season at Triple-A to prove that performance was not a fluke.
