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.

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.

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.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Suspended five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was suspended five games for his role in Tuesday's benches-clearing incident with the Reds, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Osuna has decided to appeal the suspension, so he'll be eligible to play while the appeal is being heard.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Slugs pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna smacked a three-run, pinch-hit home run Tuesday in the Pirates' 11-4 win over the Reds.

After logging three consecutive starts, Osuna moved back to the bench Tuesday but was still able to make an impact when he was summoned to hit for the pitcher's spot in the ninth inning. Osuna has now provided two of his seven home runs on the season in the past three days, but the minor surge is unlikely to result in him earning more playing time. All-Star Josh Bell is locked in as the Pirates' everyday first baseman, and Osuna is probably fifth in line for work in the outfield, at best.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Hits homer in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in an 8-7 loss against the Mets on Sunday.

The 26-year-old brought the Pirates to within a run in the ninth inning with his blast, but the Mets still held on for a one-run win. Osuna has received more opportunities to play this month, but he is batting .231 with four extra-base hits in 39 at-bats during July. Overall, he's hitting .274 with six home runs, 15 RBI and 15 runs in 84 at-bats this season.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Getting infrequent work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

Osuna has started in only three of the Pirates' 13 games since the All-Star break. With Josh Bell and Colin Moran locked into everyday roles at either corner-infield spot, Osuna is unlikely to see his opportunities increase unless an injury strikes.

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

Osuna is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers.

Osuna started the last four games for the Pirates and tallied seven hits and four RBI over that span, but Pittsburgh had the DH spot available the last three games while playing by AL rules in Houston. Osuna will be squeezed out Friday with the Pirates resuming divisional play in Milwaukee.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 3-for-6 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Padres.

Osuna doubled and scored in the third inning before adding a run-scoring single in the fourth frame. The 26-year-old has performed well in a bench role since returning from the injured list at the end of May, slashing .290/.333/.677 with three homers and nine RBI in 34 plate appearances. A natural first baseman, he started two of three weekend games at third base.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Draws start at hot corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna is starting at third base and hitting sixth in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Osuna was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday morning and made a pinch-hit appearance later in the day against the Dodgers, though he failed to record his first big-league hit of the 2019 season. He's played primarily in the outfield while in the minor leagues this season, but he did make two starts at third base while with Indianapolis.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Osuna started the season on the injured list and was optioned to Triple-A at the conclusion of his rehab assignment at the start of May. The 26-year-old was solid through 19 games for Indianapolis with a .268/.361/.479 slash line in 83 plate appearances. Osuna should provide depth at first base and the corner outfield spots for the Pirates.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Activated, optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Osuna had already been with Indianapolis on a rehab assignment. There's no room for him on the big-league roster at the moment, and his career .231/.263/.417 line in 155 games at the highest level means the Pirates are unlikely to go out of their way to clear a spot for him.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna (neck) had his rehab assignment moved up to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Osuna had gone 4-for-20 in five rehab games for High-A Bradenton. It's not clear how long he's expected to remain in Indianapolis, or whether or not he'll head straight to the big leagues once fully healthy.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna (neck) has gone 1-for-8 at the plate while drawing starts in right and left field during the first two games of his rehab assignment with High-A Bradenton.

The pair of games marked Osuna's first competitive action since the Grapefruit League season, which came to an early end for the 26-year-old due to lower neck discomfort. After a month-long hiatus, Osuna will likely need to play at least a few more minor-league games before the Pirates feel comfortable activating him from the 10-day injured list.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Cleared for full activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna (neck) has been cleared for full baseball activities, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Osuna has been on the shelf all season with a neck injury. He's expected to ramp up his activity at extended spring training over the next week before being cleared to play in simulated games.

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

The Pirates placed Osuna (neck) on the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's game against the Reds.

Osuna dealt with lower neck discomfort coming out of spring training, an injury that ended his chances of breaking camp with the Pirates. It's unclear if Osuna will have a spot waiting for him on Pittsburgh's 25-man roster once he's activated from the IL.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Will begin 2019 on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna (neck) is set to start Opening Day on the injured list, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

The severity of Osuna's injury isn't known, but it's bad enough for him to begin the season on the IL. Even when healthy, the first baseman/outfielder has no clear path to playing time. He hit just .154 in 39 spring at-bats after batting .226 in 106 at-bats for Pittsburgh last year. Osuna slashed .321/.378/497 in 302 Triple-A at-bats in 2018, but he's at risk of becoming known as a Quad-A talent.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Doesn't travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna didn't make the trip to Houston due to neck discomfort and will be evaluated in Pittsburgh later in the week.

Osuna was reportedly dealing with side discomfort after exiting Sunday's exhibition, but it appears his neck is the area of concern at the moment. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day until more information on his injury is revealed, although this latest development is certainly concerning with the regular season scheduled to begin Thursday in Cincinnati.
