Between 2006 and 2009, he played with the brett hull blues jersey c 9 Tigers and A’s before spending two seasons in Japan. He posted records of 15-8 and 11-9 with Hiroshima of the Japan Central League.

He’s not on the 40-man roster, but Leesman was one of 14 non-roster invitees to spring training. He’s an organizational favorite-also the best pitching prospect in the organization not named sale jerseys, but that’s also not saying much-who posted a nice 3.05 FIP with double-A Birmingham in 2010. Unfortunately, that success has a red flag. Leesman actually had worse results with single-A Winston-Salem before being bumped to Birmingham last season, posting a 5.37 FIP for the Dash in 84.2 innings.
