Indians Make Deal with Boston for Veteran Catcher Sandy Leon

The Indians Monday added some depth to the catcher spot, making a deal with the Boston Red Sox for catcher Sandy Leon.

The team sent minor league right-handed pitcher Adenys Bautista to Boston in return for Leon.

Leon has been in Majors for the better part of eight seasons, spending time with both the Red Sox and the Washington Nationals.

Last season in 65 games the 30-year-old catcher hit .192 for the Red Sox.

The veteran is known more for his glove than his bat, as he ranked among one of the top American League defensive catchers in 2019.
