Texas Rangers Place 12-Year Veteran Catcher On Waivers

The Texas Rangers have made a significant roster move by designating catcher Sandy León for assignment.

This decision comes as the team seeks to shake things up and address León's struggles at the plate, where he posted a batting average of just .146 (6-for-41) this season.

Despite retaining his position following Mitch Garver's return from the injured list earlier in June, León's offensive performance has fallen short, leading to his removal from the active roster.

In his place, the Rangers have called up Sam Huff from Triple-A Round Rock, who will now serve as the backup catcher for the team.

As a seasoned 34-year-old player, León had participated in 21 games this season, contributing four RBI along the way.

Over his 12-year career, Leon has played for six different teams, posting a .208/.276/.311 triple-slash line, with 31 home runs, 149 RBIs, and 158 runs scored across 554 games played.

The Rangers hope that the addition of Huff will provide a fresh spark behind the plate and contribute to their overall performance. Photo Credit: Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports
