Analysis: Leon was the third catcher on Washington's depth chart. In 34 major league games with the Nationals over the past three seasons, Leon hit .189 with three doubles, one homer and five RBIs. He is a career .236 batter in the minors. The Red Sox said Leon will be assigned to major league camp. They put catcher Christian Vazquez on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain, a move that made room for Leon on the 40-man roster.
