Seattle Mariners' manager Lloyd McClendon said had great things to say about Leone "He's a talented young man, capable of multiple innings. I can tell you this. I will not be afraid to put him in impactful situations because he's that good and we feel that good about him. I think he adds a lot to this bullpen."

In two minor league seasons, Leone was 4-3 with 21 saves and had a 1.95 ERA. He was drafted by the Mariners in the 16th round of the 2012 June Draft.
