Minnesota Twins Catcher to Have Surgery

The Minnesota Twins will be without Sandy Leon for the remainder of the season, as the veteran catcher is set to have right knee meniscus surgery.

Leon was traded to the Twins from the Cleveland Guardians on deadline day. It was a bit of a strange move at the time, as the AL Central foes were close in the standings at the time of it. Yet, the Twins needed a catcher, and the Guardians had an abundance of them. Following the move, Leon played in 25 games as a Twin, where he had zero home runs, four RBIs, and a .179 batting average.

Leon will now be spending the offseason recovering. It will be intriguing to see if he can find a home in 2023, but given his solid defensive play, it is certainly possible he inks a deal.
