Major League Baseball announced on Monday that Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna has had his administrative leave extended through May 21.
Osuna, 23, was charged with assaulting a woman last week on a Blue Jays off-day. The league placed him on administrative leave on May 8. He is scheduled for a court appearance on June 18. Major League Baseball continues to investigate the situation. Osuna is likely facing a suspension, regardless of whether or not he is convicted next month.
Prior to the incident, Osuna had racked up nine saves with a 2.93 ERA and a 13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings. Tyler Clippard has recorded the only save for the Blue Jays since Osuna has been absent.
The Atlanta Braves have signed right-hander Josh Tomlin to a minor league contract with an invitation to the team’s major league camp.
The 34-year-old Tomlin, who was released by Milwaukee on Wednesday, had a 6.14 ERA in 32 games, including nine starts, with Cleveland in 2018. Tomlin was 61-53 with a 4.77 ERA in nine seasons with the Indians.
Tomlin was 2-1 with a 4.80 ERA in five games with the Brewers this spring after joining the team on a minor league deal.
