LeBlanc played and started in 100 games for the Panthers from 2015-16. He had a career .432 on base percentage, .471 slugging percentage, 136 hits, 21 doubles, six triples and five home runs.
LeBlanc saw the most success as a sophomore in the 2016 season, hitting .405, which earned him the ACC batting title. His 79 hits in the season are the eighth most in Pitt history and he made the All-ACC First Team, the first Pitt player to do so.
The Texas Rangers selected him as the No. 129 pick in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB draft. He stayed in the Rangers organization for six seasons, before the Marlins picked him off waivers in December.
At Triple-A, he played 87 games with the Jumbo Shrimp, and had career-highs with a .381 on base percentage, .503 slugging percentage, .884 OPS and a .302 batting average. He also amassed 96 hits, 14 home runs, 45 RBIs and 20 doubles.
