Minnesota Twins New Catcher Set To Make Debut

On trade deadline day, the Minnesota Twins quietly acquired Sandy Leon from the Cleveland Guardians. Now, he is immediately getting his chance with the Twins, as the veteran catcher has been called up to their major league roster.

Leon will provide the Twins with another backup option behind the plate for the remainder of the season. With the Guardians this campaign, Leon appeared in eight games, where he had a .133 batting average. Although he struggles a lot at the plate, he is primarily noted for his strong defensive play. This is likely why the Twins are giving him a shot.

In 508 career MLB games, Leon has 31 home runs, 141 RBIs, and a .211 batting average. Let's see how much these stats change from here.
