  • Josh Osich: Parts ways with Cincy

    Osich was released by the Reds on Friday.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Designated for assignment

    Osich was designated for assignment by the Reds on Wednesday.

    Osich had a strong start to begin his time in the majors this year and put up a 0.87 ERA in 10.1 innings across his first 12 appearances of 2021. However, he was unable to replicate his success after the All-Star break, as he was charged with two blown saves after he allowed eight runs (seven earned) on 10 hits and two walks while striking out two in four innings during five appearances. His removal from the 40-man roster will make room for right-hander Mychal Givens, who was acquired from the Rockies on Wednesday.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Blows lead in eighth

    Osich allowed a game-tying homer to the Cubs' Willson Contreras in Monday's loss. He has now blown leads in two of his last three outings and allowed at least one run to score in four of his last five appearances.

    That Osich was asked to pitch the eighth inning in the first place speaks volumes about the status of the Reds' bullpen right now. With this outing, his ERA climbed to 5.02, and he has served up four homers in 14.1 innings.

    Osich (1-0) retired the only batter he faced to earn the win in Friday's 2-1 win over the Cubs.

    The 32-year-old was called on to relieve Art Warren with one on and two outs in the sixth inning. Osich got Jason Heyward to ground out, and Cincinnati pulled ahead in the bottom of the sixth to put the southpaw in position for the win. He's now posted a 1.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP across six innings since he joined the major-league roster June 19.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Serves up grand slam

    Osich allowed a grand slam by the Padres' Trent Grisham in Wednesday's 7-5 loss. It was the first run Osich has allowed in 5.2 innings since joining the Reds.

    Osich came into the game with the bases already juiced in relief of starter Vladimir Gutierrez with one out in the fifth inning, but he couldn't take advantage of the lefty-on-lefty matchup against Grisham. Though Gutierrez was saddled with three runs and the loss, it was the decisive blow in the game, which ended in the sixth inning due to a thunder storm.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Contract selected by Reds

    Osich's contract was selected by the Reds on Saturday.

    Osich joined the Reds on a minor-league deal over the offseason. The veteran lefty will earn another big-league opportunity despite posting a mediocre 5.40 ERA in 15 innings for Triple-A Louisville. He's thrown 206.1 career innings at the major-league level but hasn't done much of note, posting a career 5.02 ERA overall and a 5.67 ERA over the last four years. Ashton Goudeau was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Reassigned to minors

    Osich was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.

    Osich displayed improved velocity during spring training and posted a 5.63 ERA and 14:5 K:BB in eight innings across eight Cactus League appearances. However, the southpaw won't break camp with the team and should head to Triple-A Louisville to begin the 2021 season.

    Osich is in the Reds spring training camp on a non-roster invite. That he's left-handed works in his favor - only Amir Garrett and Sean Doolittle are lefties in their pen, barring the possibility of Wade Miley not starting.

  • Reds' Josh Osich: Joins Reds as non-roster invitee

    Osich signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Monday.

    The deal includes an invitation to big-league camp. The veteran lefty threw 18.1 innings for the Red Sox and Cubs last season, struggling to a 6.38 ERA. However, his 27.9 percent strikeout rate, 5.8 percent walk rate and 54.5 percent groundball rate were all solidly better than league average, so he has the potential to be a capable relief option this season.

  • Red Sox's Josh Osich: Earns win in relief

    Osich (1-1) picked up the win in Sunday's victory over Washington, allowing a pair of hits across 1.1 scoreless innings. He struck out one and did not issue a walk.

    Boston starter Zack Godley was spotted early leads of 5-0 and 8-2 but could not get out of the fifth inning. Osich picked up the win as a result, collecting four outs while keeping the Nats off the board. It marked the left-hander's first win on the campaign.

  • Cubs' Josh Osich: Traded to Cubs

    Osich was traded from the Red Sox to the Cubs on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Osich has been a bit inconsistent out of the bullpen this season, but he's tossed three scoreless innings over his past three appearances, allowing four hits and no walks while striking out three. The southpaw should continue to serve in a middle relief role in Chicago as he sports a 5.74 ERA and 20:5 K:BB over 15.2 innings this season.

  • Red Sox's Josh Osich: Takes loss as opener

    Osich (0-1) took the loss Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one over two innings versus the Mets.

    Osich surrendered a two-run homer to Michael Conforto in the second inning, and the Red Sox hitters were never able to even the score. This was Osich's second appearance of the year -- he previously pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Orioles. The early usage pattern suggests the 31-year-old southpaw may be in line for a versatile role in 2020.

    Osich will serve as the opener in Monday's game against the Mets, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
