Sandy Leon clears waivers, outrighted to Pawtucket

The team has announced Leon has cleared waivers.

On Sunday, the Red Sox placed Sandy Leon on waivers after reportedly shopping the veteran catcher days prior. A team had 48 hours to claim Leon or he could then have the option to accept a minor league assignment from the Red Sox.

The Red Sox just announced that Sandy Leon has cleared waivers and that he was out-righted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Leon has yet to make a decision, reports Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham. He has 48 hours to do so. The whole situation is a little confusing, but Chris Hatfield from Sox Prospects explained it pretty well in this tweet:

This situation could play out pretty well for the Red Sox, who could have catcher depth in the minors in case something happens to Swihart or Vazquez. However, I feel for Leon, who has had a roller coaster week. I wish him nothing but the best.
