      Roberto Osuna: Hits open market

      Roberto Osuna (elbow) passed through outright waivers Friday and elected free agency rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.Osuna is undoubtedly a talented pitcher, posting a 2.74 ERA and saving 155 games through six big-league seasons. Multiple factors make him a less than appealing option, however, including his 2018 domestic violence suspension and the elbow issues that limited him to just 4.1 innings this past year. While he avoided surgery and has resumed throwing, injury concerns will presumably still affect his value on the open market.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Waived by Astros

      Roberto Osuna (elbow) was placed on outright waivers by the Houston Astros on Thursday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.Osuna was expected to make somewhere in the region of $10 million in arbitration this offseason. Elbow issues limited the righty to just 4.1 innings this season, though he's seemingly avoided Tommy John surgery despite previous indications the procedure would be required. Between the elbow worries and Osuna's 2018 domestic violence suspension, the Astros evidently were uninterested in bringing the young righty back at that price. Those factors will likely also reduce his interest if he winds up on the open market, though some team will presumably want a 25-year-old with a 2.74 career ERA and 155 saves.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Resumes throwing

      General manager James Click said Saturday that Roberto Osuna (elbow) recently resumed throwing, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.The Houston Astros were hopeful in early August that Osuna could return to the mound later in the season, but there haven't been many updates regarding his recovery process. While it's encouraging that he's throwing again, it's unlikely that he'll be able to return in 2020. Ryan Pressly should continue to serve as the closer for the Astros this year.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Hoping to return later this season

      The Houston Astros are hoping Roberto Osuna (elbow) can return later this season after rehabbing, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.Osuna has been sidelined all month with an elbow injury. It was originally thought that the right-hander would require Tommy John surgery, but it sounds like he's going to attempt to rehab his elbow after receiving a second opinion. He's still shut down from throwing. Ryan Pressly should continue to serve as Houston's closer in the meantime.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Transferred to 45-day IL

      Roberto Osuna (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Sunday.The move is simply procedural as Osuna likely requires Tommy John surgery to repair an elbow issue that surfaced at the beginning of August. Left-hander Brooks Raley was acquired from the Reds in a corresponding move. Ryan Pressly should continue to serve as the Houston Astros' closer for the foreseeable future.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Likely needs Tommy John surgery

      Roberto Osuna's (elbow) initial diagnosis is that he needs Tommy John surgery, Mark Berman of Fox 26 reports. He is getting a second opinion.Things seemed to be trending in this direction for Osuna, given some quotes earlier in the day from manager Dusty Baker. Even if he does not undergo the procedure in the imminent future, he won't be pitching in games for the Houston Astros anytime soon, so he is a cut in most redraft leagues. Ryan Pressly is the strong favorite to become the Astros' closer going forward. He has the upside to finish the season as a top-10 closer if he holds the role. If Osuna were to get Tommy John surgery soon, he would not be a lock to return during the 2021 season, especially since he previously required the procedure as an 18-year-old.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Outlook not good

      Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker said, "The reality is it's probably not really good news," when asked about Roberto Osuna's elbow injury Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.Osuna underwent an MRI on Monday after leaving Saturday's game against the Angels with what was first called "right arm discomfort" and then "right elbow soreness." Baker's response seemingly indicates that a more serious diagnosis is coming soon, though it's not yet clear what exactly that will be. Ryan Pressly is the primary candidate to close in Osuna's absence.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Heads to IL

      The Houston Astros placed Roberto Osuna on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right elbow soreness, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.The Houston closer will go on the shelf one day after exiting early in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Angels with the injury. Cy Sneed came on to replace Osuna in that contest and blew the save opportunity, but Ryan Pressly -- who returned from an elbow issue Saturday and pitched earlier in the contest -- likely profiles as the top candidate to close while Osuna is sidelined. The Astros sent Osuna in for an MRI prior to placing him on the IL, but the team has yet to offer a timetable for his return.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Heading for MRI

      Roberto Osuna will return to Houston to undergo an MRI after leaving Saturday's game with right arm discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.Osuna recorded one out and allowed an infield hit before exiting Saturday's game. The Houston Astros are already dealing with a plethora of injuries to the pitching staff, so losing their closer for any period of time would be a significant blow. It's unclear if a stint on the injured list will be necessary, but the 25-year-old at least figures to be unavailable for the next few days. Ryan Pressly made his season debut Saturday after dealing with elbow soreness and should be in the mix for saves while Osuna is sidelined.

      Astros' Roberto Osuna: Exits Saturday's game

      Roberto Osuna was removed from Saturday's game against the Angels with an apparent injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.The 25-year-old entered the game to start the ninth inning with a 4-3 lead, and he exited after giving up a one-out infield single to Luis Rengifo, who eventually came around to score. The specifics of the situation remain unclear, but it's a troublesome sign for the Houston Astros given the numerous injuries the pitching staff is already contending with.
