2018

2017

Leone bounced between Triple-A Reno and the majors last season, and he posted ugly numbers when he was with the Diamondbacks. He is only entering his age-25 season and has a solid four-pitch mix as a reliever, so he could develop into a quality big league reliever. In 2014 with Seattle, Leone looked promising while striking out 70 across 66.1 innings. He has failed to maintain that level of success in the two seasons since his debut, but Leone continues to intrigue big league teams seeking a young reliever with growth potential. Claimed off waivers by the Jays in November, Leone will be in the mix for a bullpen job during spring training, competing as a dark horse to replace Brett Cecil.

2015

Leone was a nice addition to the Mariners' bullpen last season after his callup in early April. The hard-throwing right-hander mixed as many as four pitches, averaging 94.6 mph on his fastball. He led the bullpen in ERA, though his FIP was nearly a run higher (3.07). Leone had a strong strikeout rate, and excluding his intentional walks drops his walk rate to 3.0 BB/9. He'll be back again this season to pitch in middle relief.
