Arnold Leon has agreed to a contract with the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization.
Leon was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays in mid-April after yielding two earned runs in 2 1/3 innings of relief at the major league level. The right-hander had been posting very good numbers at Triple-A Buffalo -- the Jays' International League affiliate -- and he should fare well over in the KBO. May 18 - 9:28 AM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Arnold Leon from the Athletics for cash considerations.

Leon saw 26 2/3 innings (19 relief appearances) of work with the A's during the 2015 season. He allowed 14 runs in that space with a 19/9 K/BB ratio.

Barring a nice spring, he could open the season in the minors.
