RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Leon was an emergency acquisition late in spring training when the Red Sox learned of Christian Vazquez’s need for Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Leon paired with Ryan Hanigan in a catcher combination that was not expected to do much at the plate, but could handle the staff until Blake Swihart was ready. When Hanigan went down in May with a broken knuckle, the Red Sox chose to promote Swihart to be their starting catcher, keeping Leon in a backup role. He eventually emerged as the go-to catcher for Clay Buchholz. Leon hit .184/.238/.202 with two extra-base hits and three RBI in 128 plate appearances (41 games). The Red Sox signed him to a major-league contract this offseason and then outrighted him to Triple-A Pawtucket, where he’s expected to start the season and serve as organizational depth should injuries hit Swihart or Vazquez.

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.
