White Sox's Josh Osich: Finishes up blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich allowed a home run in one inning in Thursday's 11-5 loss to the Tigers.

It's no surprise to see Osich make a low-leverage appearance or give up a long ball. The 30-year-old left-hander has appeared in 25 games, 18 of them when the White Sox have lost. He has a 5.28 ERA and has given up eight homers over 29 innings (2.5 HR/9).

White Sox's Josh Osich: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

The lefty is up to replace Caleb Frare, who was optioned to Charlotte on Wednesday. Osich threw 120.1 major-league innings over parts of four major-league seasons with the Giants, recording an unimpressive 5.01 ERA.

White Sox's Josh Osich: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

Osich had a shot to break camp with the big-league squad, but he won't get his chance right away. The 30-year-old lefty has a career 5.01 ERA in 120.1 innings at the highest level.

White Sox's Josh Osich: Claimed by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was claimed by the White Sox on Monday.

Osich had been designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday. He allowed 11 earned runs in 12 innings for the Giants last season. Michael Kopech (elbow) was place on the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Josh Osich: DFA'd by Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Osich was booted off the 40-man roster to make room for Dwight Smith, who was acquired from the Blue Jays on Friday. Osich spent the majority of the 2018 season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he posted a 4.96 ERA over 45.1 frames, and he figures to end up at Triple-A Norfolk, assuming he goes unclaimed.

Orioles' Josh Osich: Claimed by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Tuesday.

Osich will join the Orioles after being designated for assignment by the Giants last week. The southpaw spent most of the 2018 season with Triple-A Sacramento, posting a 4.96 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 45.1 innings for the River Cats. Osich owns a career 5.01 ERA across parts of four big-league seasons (120.1 innings), so he doesn't figure to make much of an impact at the major-league level in 2019. Hanser Alberto was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Osich.

Giants' Josh Osich: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was designated for assignment by the Giants on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Jose Lopez, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday, will take Osich's place on the Giants' 40-man roster. Osich spent most of his time in 2018 with Triple-A Sacramento, notching a 4.96 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 45.1 innings. He also made 12 appearances for the big club, but allowed 11 earned runs on 20 hits across 12.0 innings in those appearances.

Giants' Josh Osich: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants optioned Osich to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Osich was promoted from Triple-A on Tuesday and allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and a strikeout in his lone appearance this week. The 29-year-old has a 8.25 ERA and 2.25 WHIP over 12 innings this season, and was demoted to make room for the return of Mac Williamson (concussion) from the disabled list.

Giants' Josh Osich: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Osich will get another crack at big-league action after hitting the disabled list with a hip injury and then being optioned down to the minors. He'll look to turn around after a poor start to the 2018 season, as he allowed a 8.10 ERA and 2.20 WHIP over his first 11 games of the season out of the bullpen with the Giants.

May 10, 2018 10:52 AM
Giants' Josh Osich: Activated; optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day DL and optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Osich has fully recovered from right hip tightness that forced him to spend a couple weeks on the disabled list, but will resume his 2018 season at the minor-league level as the Giants called up Jose Valdez to take his place in the bullpen. During 11 relief appearances with San Francisco this year, Osich has posted an 8.10 ERA and 2.20 WHIP over 10 innings.

April 28, 2018 07:21 PM
Giants' Josh Osich: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Osich on the 10-day disabled list with right hip tightness Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Osich had a blow-up appearance against the Nationals on Wednesday -- allowing four runs on four hits over 1.2 innings -- and now heads to the disabled list. The injury doesn't appear to be overly severe, but there remains no official timetable for his return.

Giants' Josh Osich: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich gave up a pair of runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.2 innings Sunday.

The southpaw looked to have figured things out after firing 11 scoreless innings with 16 strikeouts this spring, but his production came back down to earth when the games began to count. Osich now sports a 6.14 ERA through 7.1 innings after posting an ugly 6.23 ERA over 43.1 innings last season.

Giants' Josh Osich: Continues scoreless spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich shut out the Rockies over 1.1 innings while allowing one hit and striking out three in a spring victory Sunday.

Osich has yet to allow a run through 8.1 innings while striking out 10 batters this spring. His strong play allowed the Giants to send fellow lefty Steven Okert to the minors earlier this week, all but assuring Osich's spot as the club's second southpaw reliever behind Tony Watson to begin the regular season.

Giants' Josh Osich: Throws clean inning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich gave up one hit and struck out a batter over a scoreless inning in Friday's win over the Padres.

It was a rare clean outing for the 28-year-old, who has struggled mightily in the majors this season. The Giants lack left-handed bullpen arms, so Osich has been given a much longer leash than the team would like to give a pitcher with a 6.23 ERA. He has recorded just six holds and no saves in 54 appearances, so there have been no redeeming qualities from a fantasy perspective.

Giants' Josh Osich: Tosses scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich allowed one hit while striking out one over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

Osich has strung together five scoreless appearances after going through an ugly stretch at the end of July. While he didn't pick up a hold Wednesday, the 28-year-old had successfully converted three in his previous five outings. Osich's 5.25 ERA holds him back from even having value in holds leagues, but he should continue to see late-inning opportunities against lefty-heavy portions of the lineup as the only southpaw in the Giants' bullpen.

Giants' Josh Osich: Picks up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was the winning pitcher of record after tossing 1.2 shutout innings and striking out three batters in Saturday's extra-inning win over San Diego.

The strong showing lowered Osich's ERA to 3.77 through 31 innings this season. The 28-year-old's inconsistent play and high walk rate (4.6 BB/9) make him an afterthought in standard formats. That said, Steven Okert's demotion to the minors leaves Osich as the lone southpaw in the Giants' bullpen, which could lead to increased hold opportunities against lefty-heavy lineups.

Giants' Josh Osich: Fires two scoreless innings Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich struck out two batters over two scoreless innings Friday.

The southpaw was asked to finish two frames after Matt Moore got another early hook. Osich has been subpar as a reliever this season, posting a 4.33 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 27 innings. He may run into the occasional hold as one of just two lefties in the Giants' bullpen, but even those in holds leagues could probably find an upgrade over Osich at this point.

Giants' Josh Osich: Getting chances despite poor control
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich's ERA sits at 3.31 with a 1.29 WHIP this season through 16.1 innings.

After starting the season with Triple-A Sacramento, Osich has provided a left-handed pitcher out of the bullpen for San Francisco. He's struck out 17 but has struggled with his control and has walked 10 this year. He recorded his first hold of the year in an early June game against Milwaukee, and followed that up with his first win a couple days later. He's currently the sole lefty reliever for the Giants, making him a safe bet to get consistent chances, but he'll have to tighten the control on his pitches if he wants to get the call in more high-leverage situations.

Giants' Josh Osich: Fires scoreless inning Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich struck out two batters over a scoreless inning in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Cubs.

Tuesday's clean frame brought Osich's ERA down to 4.00 through nine innings. The hard-throwing lefty has struck out a batter per inning, but walks continue to be an issue after he posted a sub-par 4.7 BB/9 last season. He will continue to be used in low-leverage situations until he displays more control on the mound.

Giants' Josh Osich: Promoted from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osich was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

Osich was promoted to the Giants to offer another left-handed arm out of the bullpen against the predominantly lefty-hitting Dodgers after San Francisco's sole lefty reliever (Steven Okert) tossed 1.2 innings during Monday's contest. Osich struggled with Sacramento this season, posting a 7.71 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 9.1 innings (nine games), though he holds a career 3.60 ERA across two major league seasons (65 innings). It's unclear how long his stint with the Giants will last, but he could earn his stay if he pitches well.
