MLB extends Blue Jays closer Osuna´s administrative leave

22 May 2018 01:21

The MLB extended Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna's administrative leave through May 28 after he was arrested and charged with assault.

It is the second time the MLB has extended the leave since Osuna was arrested and charged earlier this month, with the All-Star scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on June 18.

MLB placed Osuna on administrative leave on May 8 and on May 14 extended his leave to Monday.

At the time the 23-year-old was initially placed on leave, the Blue Jays released a statement backing the league's decision – in accordance with the joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy – while reviewing the situation.

Because the alleged incident falls under the umbrella of MLB's domestic violence policy, Osuna could face discipline no matter the legal status of the case.

Suspensions under MLB's domestic violence policy includes Jose Reyes (51 games), Aroldis Chapman (30 games), Jeurys Familia (15 games) and Steven Wright (15 games).

Osuna has nine saves in 15 appearances this season with a 2.87 ERA and 0.92 WHIP. He has recorded 104 saves, including 39 last year, in his three seasons with the Jays.
