Dominic Leone was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Marlins for hitting Christian Yelich with a pitch.

The previous half-inning Leone's teammate David Peralta was hit in the helmet by a Jose Fernandez pitch, so Leone exacted revenge on the Marlins outfielder. He'd pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings prior to being ejected.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Dominic Leone to Double-A Mobile.

Leone allowed three runs over an inning of work in his lone appearance for the D'Backs after arriving in Arizona via trade last week. He's struggled in his brief time in the majors this season but was excellent last year and remains an interesting long-term relief arm.

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Dominic Leone, C Welington Castillo, INF Jack Reinheimer and OF Gabby Guerrero from the Mariners for OF Mark Trumbo and LHP Vidal Nuno.

Leone has had a rough start to 2015, but the right-hander posted a 2.17 ERA and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings last season with the Mariners. Still just 23 years old, Leone could immediately join the mix for the closer job in the Diamondbacks' beleaguered bullpen.

Mariners recalled RHP Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma.

He'll take the place of James Paxton on the active roster. Leone owns a 5.40 ERA and 4/6 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings out of the Mariners bullpen on the season. He'll likely hang around until the team decides how best to replace Paxton in the rotation.

Mariners optioned RHP Dominic Leone to Triple-A Tacoma.

Leone was really good for Seattle last season but has struggled this year with a 5.40 ERA and 4/6 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 relief innings. He'll be back later this season.

Mariners recalled RHP Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma.

He's taking the injured Tom Wilhelmsen's (elbow) spot in the bullpen. Leone was a surprise cut late in spring training given how well he pitched for the M's last season. He'll work in middle relief for now.

Mariners optioned RHP Dominic Leone to Triple-A Tacoma.

It comes as a surprise move, as the 23-year-old was expected to earn a spot in the Mariners bullpen to begin the season. He has struggled with his command throughout the spring though, and manager Lloyd McClendon wants him to get back on track before he trusts him at the big league level. Leone registered a 12.86 ERA and 2.86 WHIP over seven frames in Cactus League play.

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma.

Leone is a hard-thrower and owns an impressive 1.95 ERA with 103 strikeouts over 97 innings in his one-and-a-half seasons in the minors. He'll work the middle innings for now but could possibly move into a later inning role at some point.
Fri, Apr 4, 2014 05:42:00 PM

Mariners promoted RHP Dominic Leone to Double-A Jackson.

Leone posted a 2.50 ERA and 12 saves at the High-A level. A 16th round pick in 2012, he should continue to move quickly through the Mariners' minor league system.
