Sandy Leon, C, BOS

News: Leon will start behind the plate Tuesday against the Tigers after Ryan Hanigan was scratched due to illness, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Leon will bat eighth while catching knuckleballer Steven Wright during Tuesday's contest. Wright has normally been caught by Hanigan throughout the season, but Leon will slide back into the lineup after going 2-for-4 with an RBI on Monday.

Ryan Hanigan

Ryan Hanigan, C, BOS
7/26/2016
News: Hanigan (illness) was a late scratch to the lineup Tuesday, going down with flu-like symptoms, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Hanigan was originally slotted to catch knuckleballer Steven Wright, which he has done most of this season when he's been healthy. In his place, the Red Sox plugged in Sandy Leon behind the plate against the Tigers on Tuesday. Hanigan will be considered day-to-day.

Analysis: 

Juan Centeno
Twins' Juan Centeno: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Juan Centeno, C, MIN
7/26/2016
News: Centeno is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

After starting three consecutive games, Centeno is out of Tuesday's lineup as Kurt Suzuki returns from his recent chin injury. Although Centeno went 6-for-12 during Suzuki's absence, there's no reason to believe he'll be used in a greater capacity going forward.

Kurt Suzuki
Twins' Kurt Suzuki: Returns to lineup Tuesday
Kurt Suzuki, C, MIN
7/26/2016
News: Suzuki (face) is back in the lineup Tuesday, batting eighth and starting at catcher.

Just days after receiving eight stitches for a lacerated chin, Suzuki will draw back in behind the plate for Tuesday's interleague matchup with the Braves. His return will bump Juan Centeno back to the bench. Suzuki has slashed .319/.347/.468 with eight RBI in 47 July at-bats.

Analysis: 

Jason Castro
Astros' Jason Castro: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Jason Castro, C, HOU
7/26/2016
News: Castro will sit out Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

Castro will take a seat as the Yankees send southpaw CC Sabathia to the mound. His future role behind the plate remains a question mark following the Astros' promotion of Alex Bregman, potentially leading to Evan Gattis playing more behind the dish to open up the DH spot. With all bodies healthy, his playing time could shrink moving forward.

Analysis: 

Matt McBride
Athletics' Matt McBride: Optioned to Triple-A
Matt McBride, C, OAK
7/26/2016
News: The A's optioned McBride to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

McBride was sent back to Nashville to clear a roster spot for the returning Stephen Vogt. He will garner consideration next time the A's need to bring up a catcher from the minors.

Analysis: 

Matt Wieters
Orioles' Matt Wieters: Back in lineup Monday
Matt Wieters, C, BAL
7/26/2016
News: Wieters (foot) is back in the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Wieters took a foul ball off the foot last Monday and missed the last six games while dealing with swelling and discomfort. As expected, he'll return to action Monday, slotting in at catcher and batting sixth in the order against Colorado's Jorge De La Rosa.

Analysis: 

Salvador Perez
Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers in win over Angels
Salvador Perez, C, KC
7/26/2016
News: Perez hit a two-run home run in a 1-for-4 game in a loss Monday against the Angels.

Perez was just 3-for-24 with eight strikeouts and no extra-base hits over his last seven games, so he badly needed something to get him out of that slump. Sunday marked his first day off since the All-Star break, and the rest might have been exactly what he needed.
