Leon was selected in the 25th round of the MLB Draft to the New York Mets, but instead opted to attend Rice University.

He played for the Spokane Indians in 2015 and headed to spring training in 2016 with the Rangers after spending the offseason expanding his versatility and learning to drive the baseball to all fields with his lower half.
