Player Outlook
Acquired from the Dodgers in August in exchange for cash, Eddys Leonard looked pretty good with his new organization. The 23-year-old reported to Triple-A Toledo and posted a .302/.374/.530 slash line with eight home runs across 40 games for the Mud Hens. Prior to the trade, Leonard popped 12 home runs in 92 games with Double-A Tulsa. The youngster had 15 long balls a season earlier at the High-A level, which gives him some upside as a player who has primarily played in the middle infield. Last year, Leonard made 107 starts at shortstop across his two stops while also making 13 appearances in the outfield. Javier Baez is currently the starting shortstop in Detroit, though the veteran has quickly worn out his welcome due to a few poor seasons after signing a large contract. Baez is clearly not the long-term answer up the middle, and Leonard could be in the mix to replace him when the time comes. The latter will likely start 2024 back at Triple-A and look to put together a strong full season at the level, though an MLB promotion at some point isn't out of the question.

  • Tigers' Eddys Leonard: Goes back on IL

    Triple-A Toledo placed Leonard on its 7-day injured list Wednesday with an unspecified injury. Leonard was placed on Toledo's IL in early April with an oblique strain and missed just under two months of action before returning to the Triple-A lineup June 4. However, he appeared in just 16 games for Toledo before getting shut down again with a new injury. Leonard -- who possesses a spot on the Tigers' 40-man roster -- is without a clear timeline for a return from the IL.

  • Tigers' Eddys Leonard: May resume baseball activities soon

    The Tigers announced Tuesday that Leonard (oblique) will be re-evaluated next week and could begin a baseball progression program, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Leonard, who is a member of the Tigers' 40-man roster, was placed on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list on April 9 after straining his left oblique. He's been able to complete daily rehab since being shut down with the injury, but Leonard has yet to get back on the field for hitting, fielding or running.

  • Tigers' Eddys Leonard: Sent down to minors

    The Tigers optioned Leonard to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Leonard entered camp seemingly with a shot to win a bench job and fared well this spring with a .984 OPS, but he'll nonetheless head to Toledo for now. The 23-year-old was acquired from the Dodgers last August.

  • Tigers' Eddys Leonard: In running for final bench spot

    Leonard is one of several players who figure to compete for Detroit's final bench spot this spring along with new acquisition Keston Hiura, Ryan Kreidler and others, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Leonard has yet to make his MLB debut, while Kreidler played with the Tigers some last season and Hiura has appeared in 284 games at the MLB level, so Leonard may be third in the pecking order to begin the regular season. However, he has some defensive versatility and posted a .904 OPS in 40 contests with Triple-A Toledo last season, so the youngster could be on the verge of cracking the big-league roster soon. Leonard's cause would be boosted if Kreidler and Hiura struggle at the plate in camp or early in the regular season.

  • Dodgers' Eddys Leonard: Rewarded with 40-man roster spot

    Leonard was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster Friday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Leonard forced the Dodgers to protect him from the Rule 5 draft after slashing .299/.375/.530 with eight home runs in 41 games as a 20-year-old at High-A. The Dodgers will always have a crowded infield, but he might bring enough offensive impact to the table to get a look in a couple years.
