Pirates' Jose Osuna: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday.

The 27-year-old was demoted earlier in the week but will return to the active roster with Phillip Evans (concussion/jaw) heading to the injured list. Osuna was 3-for-19 in six games before being sent down and could see occasional starts between first base, right field and designated hitter.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site following Wednesday's loss to the Twins, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Pittburgh needed to trim its roster to 28 players by Thursday's roster deadline, and Osuna is being demoted as a result. The 27-year-old began the season 3-for-8 over the first two games, but he's 0-for-11 in his last five appearances.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Osuna started three of the first four games of the season for the Pirates but has since gone on to start just two of the last seven. He has just three hits on the season, the most recent of which came in the third game of the year.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Not in lineup again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Osuna will be excluded from the starting lineup for the fourth consecutive night Saturday after he appeared in three of the team's first four games of the season. With Colin Moran sliding to the designated hitter spot, Phillip Evans will take over at the hot corner, batting seventh.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Sits for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will sit Friday against the Cubs.

Osuna started two of the first three games this season, seeing action at designated hitter and in right field, but he's since been on the bench for three straight contests. Cole Tucker starts in right field for the third time this season Friday.

July 30, 2020 11:20 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will hit the bench Wednesday against the Brewers.

Osuna started all of the Pirates' first three games but has now been on the bench for two straight. Gregory Polanco starts in right field, while Josh Bell rests his legs as the designated hitter.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Drills home run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Cardinals.

Osuna started the game in right field after getting Saturday off, and he made it count. The 27-year-old slugged a two-run shot off starter Dakota Hudson in the fourth inning to give the Pirates the lead. Even when Gregory Polanco (illness) returns, Osuna should find somewhat regular playing time at first base and DH.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Ready for outfield duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will start in right field and bat sixth Sunday in St. Louis.

He went 2-for-4 with a double Friday, scoring a pair of runs. Osuna has faced Cardinals starter Dakota Hudson only one time, collecting an RBI single. While Osuna is not a plus-defender in the outfield, he could earn added playing time if he shows a strong bat, especially with Gregory Polanco (illness) out for another week or so.

July 18, 2020 05:48 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Will be in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will bat fifth and serve as the designated hitter Saturday against Cleveland.

The 27-year-old hit 10 homers in 285 plate appearances last season, with six of the long balls coming off the bench. Osuna batted .317 through mid-August mostly as a reserve player, but slumped to .217 in 35 starts from Aug. 20 to season's end. There's little question that 2020 represents a huge opportunity for Osuna. He's the team's best defender at first base and should see more action with the addition of the designated hitter.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Versatility is a key
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is expected to start the 2020 campaign as a backup corner infielder and right fielder, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Because of injuries to teammates, the 27-year-old saw plenty of playing time in August and September, starting 44 games over the final two months of the 2019 season. The results were not particularly encouraging, however. Osuna slashed .250/.296/.378 with three homers and 19 RBI in 189 plate appearances. As a result, he might be best suited as a bat off the bench -- he belted seven pinch-hit home runs in 2019. He does have one minor-league option remaining, so there's even a chance he could start the season with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Doubles twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk and three runs scored during Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Giants.

The 26-year-old first baseman hit a leadoff double and scored in the second inning, then led off the fourth frame with his second double of the night, scoring once again. To finish off his hot night at the plate, Osuna drew a walk in the eighth, scoring for the third time. The trio of runs scored marked a season high for Osuna, who is slashing .261/.306/.503 with 18 doubles across 79 games.

September 5, 2019 03:36 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is not in Thursday's lineup against the Marlins.

He has started 13 of the last 16 games, hitting .154 with two home runs in 52 at-bats over that stretch. Melky Cabrera starts in right field and will hit fifth.

August 30, 2019 04:40 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Colorado.

Osuna started four of the last five games but will take a seat after going 4-for-19 with two doubles, a home run and three RBI in that stretch. Melky Cabrera will start in right field in his place Friday.

August 30, 2019 01:36 AM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Slugs ninth homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Pirates' 11-8 victory over the Rockies on Thursday.

The 26-year-old had just one hit in his last 11 at-bats coming into the game, but he snapped out of the brief funk with this multi-hit day that included his ninth home run of the season and his 15th two-bagger. He's now slashing a solid .293/.339/.561 to give him an even .900 OPS across 167 plate appearances.

August 25, 2019 01:16 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Earns third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will start in right field and bat sixth Sunday against the Reds.

He'll crack the lineup for the third straight game, with Sunday's contest marking his second turn in right field during the series. Melky Cabrera currently tops the depth chart at that spot, but the 35-year-old could see his opportunities dwindle over the final few weeks of the season as the 54-75 Pirates prioritize younger options. Osuna would likely be the primary beneficiary if Cabrera is gradually phased out.

August 20, 2019 02:52 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Reinstated to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates reinstated Osuna from Major League Baseball's suspended list Tuesday.

Osuna had been inactive for the Pirates' previous five games while serving a suspension for his role in a July 30 benches-clearing brawl with the Reds. Now that Osuna is back in the fold, the Pirates will have reliever Kyle Crick serve his own three-game ban in connection with the same July 30 incident.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Begins serving suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will begin serving his five-game suspension Wednesday, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Osuna was suspended at the beginning of August for his role in Pittsburgh's benches-clearing incident with the Reds, though he was able to continue playing while appealing the suspension. He'll be eligible to return Tuesday against the Nationals.

August 10, 2019 09:00 AM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Set for more action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will start in left field and bat fifth Friday against the Cardinals.

He's started five of six games since the passing of the trade deadline, seeing time at three different positions. Osuna will play his fourth position (left field) Friday. He's reached base 16 times in his last 31 plate appearances to earn the playing time spike.

August 5, 2019 07:04 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Bat stays hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 2-for-2 with his eighth homer in Sunday's 13-2 loss to the Mets.

He replaced Josh Bell in the sixth inning of a blowout loss and continued his hot hitting. The 26-year-old has eight hits in his last 16 at-bats, including three home runs. General manager Neal Huntington stated at the trade deadline that Osuna will see more playing time over the final two months and he's since started two of three games. Osuna has appealed his recent five-game suspension for his involvement in a fight with the Reds and is waiting for the league's decision.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Opportunity knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna may see additional playing time in the outfield following the departure of Corey Dickerson, who was traded to Philadelphia.

General manager Neal Huntington mentioned Osuna's name first, along with Pablo Reyes and Jason Martin, as young players who could see more outfield action with starter Gregory Polanco (shoulder) not due back for weeks. "It gives us some opportunities to give some young players who are going to be -- or could be -- key parts of our 2020-and-beyond clubs Major League experience," Huntington said. "It clears the deck for us as we look toward 2020." Osuna, a natural first baseman, has struggled defensively in a small outfield sample, but his bat has proven electric. The 26-year-old is slashing .292/.337/.607 with seven homers and 18 RBI in 96 plate appearances. Osuna is also appealing a five-game suspension for his role in the recent Pirates-Reds fight.
