The Kansas City Royals have added to their catcher position. They've signed free-agent Sandy León to a minor league contract. The deal includes an invitation to major league spring training. That gives León a chance to have a good spring training and fight hard for a spot on the MLB roster.

Sandy León is a 12-year MLB veteran. He's has played for Washington, Boston, Cleveland, Miami, Minnesota, Cleveland again, and the Texas Rangers. León hasn't been able to find himself a home for a long period of time, as the team he spent the most time with is just five years when he played with Boston.

Sandy León hasn't had a great year, although he's been reliable. In 554 career games, León has slashed .208/.276/.311, with 31 HR's, 149 RBI's, and a .586 OPS. Although, the season that stands out the most for Sandy León is 2016 when he played for Boston. Sandy León played 78 games, he slashed .310/.369/.476, with 7 HR's, 35 RBI's, and a .845 OPS.

The Royals are hoping Sandy León can give them just some production. It doesn't have to be a lot. He could also serve as a veteran piece in the clubhouse, but he will have to earn himself a spot on the MLB roster. If Sandy León can perform well in spring, he will get his shot on the Kansas City Royals roster.
