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.
