Diamondbacks activate C Jarrod Saltalamacchia


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) The Diamondbacks announced Monday they have activated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the 15-day disabled list and optioned pitcher Dominic Leone to Double-A Mobile, per The Sports Xchange. 

Saltalamacchia has been on the disabled list since July 17 (retroactive to July 11) due to a strained muscle in his neck. He was hitting .213 with one home run in 20 games with the team.

Leone is 0-5 with an 8.40 ERA in 13 appearances with the Mariners and D-Backs this season. 


Diamondbacks RP Dominic Leone tossed out after HBP


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Diamondbacks reliever Dominic Leone was ejected from the game Wednesday for what home plate umpire Vic Carapazza believed to be throwing at Marlins hitter Christian Yelich, who was beaned.

The hit-by-pitch was likely a response to Miami starter Jose Fernandez planting a 97 mph fastball onto the helmet of Arizona batter David Peralta the previous inning.


D-Backs recall RP Dominic Leone from Double-A; option Danny Dorn


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) The Diamondbacks have recalled right-hander Dominic Leone from Double-A Mobile on Tuesday. Leone, who as acquired from the Mariners earlier this season, has made one relief appearance for the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on four hits in one inning on June 4.

In Double-A, Leone is 1-1 with a 4.58 ERA in 17 2/3 innings. 

To clear room for him on the roster, outfielder Danny Dorn was optioned to Triple-A Reno. 


Diamondbacks option RP Dominic Leone to Double-A


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) The Diamondbacks have optioned relief pitcher Dominic Leone to Double-A, the team announced after their 2-1 win over the Mets on Saturday.

Leone (0-5) has a 8.03 ERA in 12 1/3 innings this season, and has allowed more walks (9) than strikeouts (7).


D-Backs' Stewart hopeful Dominic Leone can return to 2014 form


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Newly acquired Diamondbacks reliever Dominic Leone has struggled this season, going 0-4 with a 6.35 ERA in 10 relief appearances. However, Arizona is banking on him finding the form he had last season, when he went 8-2 with a 2.17 ERA in 57 relief outings for the Mariners.

"Last year, you look at his numbers and he's 8-2 with a 2.17 [ERA], and we believe that that is the pitcher that we're going to get," Arizona manager Dave Stewart said, per MLB.com.


Diamondbacks trade Mark Trumbo to Mariners in six-player deal


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) The Mariners have acquired outfielder Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuno from the Diamondbacks for catcher Welington Castillo, pitcher Dominic Leone, infielder Jack Reinheimer and outfielder Gabby Guerrero.  

Trumbo is hitting .259/.299/.506 this season. Trumbo figures to add power to a Seattle lineup that has been about average this year as the Mariners have a collective .395 slugging percentage.

"You look where we're at offensively and we're not doing exactly what I thought we'd do or what most people thought we'd do, and Trumbo is a guy that brings an awful lot to the table," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said, per MLB.com. "He's a big power hitter that will bat somewhere in the middle of the lineup and will be very good insurance for the ballclub." 

Late last week, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported the Diamondbacks were potentially interested in dealing Trumbo, who has nine home runs and 23 RBI this season. 

Zduriencik said Trumbo can play either corner-outfield spot, as well as designated hitter and first base.

"We'll have a rotation system where he'll get his ABs along with Nelson Cruz and the other corner players," Zduriencik said. "That will still unfold. More than anything else, to bring the bat to this organization is what we're desiring to do."


Mariners reliever Dominic Leone walks three, including go-ahead run


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Mariners relief pitcher Dominic Leone struggled to find the strike zone in Seattle's 6-3 loss to the Indians in 12 innings on Saturday.

Leone walked leadoff man Lonnie Chisenhall in the 12th before giving up a double to Jose Ramirez with one out. After intentionally walking Jason Kipnis, Leone got Carlos Santana to pop out to third. But again, Leone couldn't find the zone as he walked Michael Brantley on four pitches to give up the go-ahead run. 

"What else is there to say? Unfortunately it was just one of those days where I didn't have it," Leone said to MLB.com. "I told [catcher Welington Castillo] thanks for sticking in there for me because everything was flying out."

David Murphy would plate two more in the inning on an RBI single. Leone, now 0-4, moved his ERA to 7.71 in 9 1/3 innings of work.


Mariners recall LHP Dominic Leone from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) The Mariners have recalled left-hander Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, according to the Tacoma News Tribune. Leone had two previous stints with the Mariners this season and owns a 5.40 ERA through 8 1/3 innings of relief so far.

Leone is taking the place of starter James Paxton, who is heading to the disabled list with a finger injury. 


Mariners activate RP Tom Wilhelmsen, option RP Dominic Leone


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) The Mariners activated reliever Tom Wilhelmsen (elbow) off the 15-day disabled list Friday. To clear a spot on the roster, reliever Dominic Leone was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners P James Paxton strikes out seven in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Mariners pitcher James Paxton pitched seven solid innings and earned a no-decision in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Astros in 10 innings. 

Paxton struck out seven batters and walked two. He allowed two earned runs, five hits and now has a 5.74 ERA. His next start is projected for May 5 against the Angels. 

Reliever Dominic Leone earned the loss after giving up a walk-off single to Jose Altuve in the 10th inning. 


Mariners' Dominic Leone pitches well, takes loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Mariners pitcher Dominic Leone was stuck with a loss Monday after giving up one earned run on one hit and two walks in 2 1/3 innings of relief in his team's 6-5, 10-inning loss to the Dodgers.

Leone was recalled Monday after Tom Wilhelmsen was placed on the disabled list, and with the bullpen stretched thin due to three straight extra-innings games as well as a short start by Taijuan Walker, Leone gave the team seven big outs in his 36-pitch performance.

"He did a tremendous job for us," manager Lloyd McClendon said after the game, per MLB.com. "He knew going in he'd be stretched tonight if he came in. He was up for the challenge."

Leone struggled this spring, leading to him starting the season at Triple-A.

"I thought tonight was a huge step for me getting back to where I was last year and years past," Leone said. "I felt really good out there. I was throwing strikes and keeping the ball down. I'm taking a positive out of tonight despite the loss."

Leone went 8-2 with a 2.17 ERA and 70:25 K:BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings last season.


Mariners recall pitcher Dominic Leone, place Tom Wilhelmsen on DL


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) The Mariners have recalled pitcher Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma and placed Tom Wilhelmsen on the disabled list, according to The News Tribune.

Wilhelmsen is dealing with a hyperextended elbow and will be placed on the 15-day DL. He has thrown 2 2/3 innings this season with a 6.75 ERA and three strikeouts. Wilhelmsen injured his elbow while trying to loosen up and swinging his arms. He slammed his arm into Dann Farquhar when he was running by.

Leone posted an 8-2 record with a 2.17 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings in 2014.


Mariners P Dominic Leone optioned to Triple-A Tacoma


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Mariners relief pitcher Dominic Leone was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, according to mlblogs.com.

“I’ve had a lot better days, I’ll tell you that,” Leone said after exchanging hugs with many of his teammates as he packed up his locker. “This is one of the toughest days I’ve had. Last year was different because I kind of came in not expecting anything and when they optioned me down, it was disappointing. But not like this. Not after the season I had last year.

“I understand I didn’t have the greatest of springs, I’ll always have stuff to work on. But it’s tough when it kind of blindsides you like that.”

Leone struggled this spring, posting an ERA of 12.86 with 17 hits in only seven innings. Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon wants Leone to get things worked out in Tacoma.

“I think the world of the young man,” McClendon said. “He just wasn’t throwing very well. He needs to get some things straightened out. In good conscious, I just couldn’t take him north with me.

“There are a lot of things that go into it. This isn’t something that just happened overnight. As a manager, you have a certain amount of loyalty to players, particularly when they pitched so well for you the year before. But it just was such a rough spring that we felt we had to make this move.”
