Tribe Acquires Boston’s Leon, Cuts Ties with Plawecki and Hoyt

December 2, 2019 |

Ahead of Monday’s deadline for tendering contracts to arbitration-eligible players, the Cleveland Indians made some moves.

Early in the day, word broke that the Indians acquired backup backstop Sandy Leon from the Boston Red Sox for 21-year-old minor league pitcher Adenys Bautista, who spent last season in the Dominican Summer League and the Arizona Rookie League. Leon was expected to be non-tendered by the Red Sox. The move may have been curious earlier in the day, as Leon joined three other catchers on the team’s 40-man roster, but that issued cleared itself up as the day progressed. The Tribe announced ahead of the 8 PM arbitration deadline that reliever James Hoyt and catcher Kevin Plawecki were not going to be tendered contracts, making the pair free agents.

After the handful of transactions Monday, the Indians’ 40-man roster sits at 39. Read More
