Pirates' Jose Osuna: Third start in four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will start in left field and will bat seventh Sunday against the Cardinals.

Osuna will pick up his third start in four games after going 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk Saturday in the Pirates' 5-4 loss. With Adam Frazier manning second base Sunday and likely to see the majority of his time at the position moving forward following Kevin Newman's (knee) move to the 10-day injured list, Osuna could end up seeing regular work in the outfield during the final week of the season.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Called up by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was recalled by the Pirates on Thursday.

Osuna will claim a spot on the active roster after Cole Tucker (concussion) was placed on the 7-day injured list Thursday. Osuna wasn't able to generate much production during his time in the majors earlier this season as he slashed .148/.179/.222 with one home run and seven RBI over 56 plate appearances.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Optioned off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site Wednesday.

Osuna has accomplished very little at the plate this season, hitting .148/.179/.222 in 56 plate appearances. The transaction clears space for the Pirates to activate Bryan Reynolds off the paternity list.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Shifts to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Osuna had made four starts in the previous five games, going 2-for-15 over that stretch. While he still doesn't have a path to an everyday role, Osuna's playing-time outlook may have improved in the short term after the Pirates placed Bryan Reynolds on the paternity list Sunday.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Gets nod against Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will make a rare start in left field and bat fifth against Cleveland on Thursday.

The 28-year-old played left field twice in 95 appearances in 2019. He went 1-for-3 on Wednesday in his first start since Aug. 3. Surprisingly, the right-handed hitter did better against righties (.849 OPS) than lefties (.612 OPS) last season.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
