Osuna tossed a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his 21st save of the season in a 4-3 win over the Rangers.
The Houston closer is now 4-for-4 on save chances in July, and his 2.21 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 43:8 K:BB through 40.2 innings remain excellent. The club may well add bullpen help at the trade deadline, but Osuna's job appears to be secure.

The right-hander still has solid numbers on the year, posting a 2.33 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 40:8 K:BB through 38.2 innings while converting 20 of 23 save chances, and barring a complete collapse his hold on the closer role appears secure.
