Sany Leon is excited to make his 2019 debut for the Red Sox after Boston called up the catcher from Triple-A Pawtucket while designating Blake Swihart for assignment.

When he got the call to return to the Sox, Leon said the last 24 hours leading up to Tuesday’s game were “crazy” as he rushed to prepare to play against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Leon will resume his role behind the plate with Chris Sale set to take the mound.

To hear more from Leon about his return to the Sox, check out the “Red Sox First Pitch” video above, presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
