Red Sox | Sandy Leon keeps on producing

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:47:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Sandy Leon was 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Inexplicably, Leon keeps hitting. He has started the team's last four games behind the dish and is 5-for-14 with two home runs and six RBI in that stretch. There's no way he can keep this up, but unless you're pressed for roster space or have a stud backstop there's no reason not to use Leon until he cools down.
