Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna charged with assault in Toronto

Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna charged with assault in Toronto

Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna has been put on temporary leave from the team after being arrested and charged with a single count of assault.

The club added it would not comment further because of the ongoing police investigation.

The Toronto Blue Jays are off to a decent start (19-16).

Osuna, 23, has appeared in 15 games this season for Toronto, saving nine games and posting a 2.93 ERA.

That league-wide policy covers cases of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse, and has been in place since 2015. The police report notes that Osuna, who was released from custody, has a court appearance on June 18.

The 23-year-old Osuna is in his fourth Major League Baseball season, all with the Blue Jays. But really in society in general there's got to be zero tolerance.

The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Jake Petricka from triple-A Buffalo to take Osuna's spot on the roster.

The Blue Jays are scheduled to give away 15,000 Osuna t-shirts prior to Thursday's game, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. The commissioner has the discretion to place any player accused of domestic violence on paid leave while the allegations are investigated.

Details surrounding the incident have not been released just yet. Days later, shortstop Jose Reyes was suspended for the first 51 games of the 2016 season for an alleged incident.
