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.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Exits with side discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna exited Sunday's spring game with side discomfort, Jeff Hathhorn of 93.7 The Fan reports.

Osuna left with a trainer after attempting to run out a grounder. While specifics regarding the issue are not yet known, this is a worrisome development for the 26-year-old with Opening Day less than a week away.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Struggling this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts against the Rays on Monday.

He's hitting .156 in 32 spring at-bats and continues to fight an uphill battle to make the Opening Day roster. Osuna, who played right field Monday, is an outstanding defensive first baseman but has failed to hit at the major-league level. The right-handed hitter holds a career .210 batting average in 167 at-bats against righties. Osuna's minor-league slash line (.282/.335/.445) suggests the potential is there, but at 26 years of age, a change of scenery might be needed to re-energize his career.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Pops third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-inning loss to the Cubs.

It's the 25-year-old's third big-league homer of the year, but his first since May 11. Osuna has been productive when given the chance in September, slashing .303/.351/.515 through 37 plate appearances, but if he does win a regular spot on the major-league roster next season it will still likely be in a bench role.

September 25, 2018 12:08 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Makes seventh start in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles against the Cubs on Monday.

He's made five of his 15 September appearances at third base, as the natural first baseman looks to increase his versatility. Osuna is batting .286 this month, but he's totaled only 28 at-bats. A change of scenery might help his career path, as the organization doesn't appear interested in giving the 25-year-old an extended look. Osuna slashed .321/.378/.497 in 342 plate appearances for Triple-A Indianapolis.

September 2, 2018 12:28 AM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Called up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was recalled by the Pirates on Saturday.

Osuna received 64 plate appearances earlier in the season but didn't do much with them, hitting just .190/.203/.333. He could receive a handful more down the stretch but hasn't done anything to suggest he'll have much fantasy value.

Pirates' Jose Osuna: Optioned to Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was sent down to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Osuna was cast off the active roster in order to make room for Josh Bell (oblique), who was reinstated from the DL in a corresponding move. After being recalled in late July, Osuna went 3-for-17 with one RBI while seeing sporadic opportunities at first base. Look for the 25-year-old to return to the majors when rosters expand in September.

July 28, 2018 03:24 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna will bat fifth and play first base Saturday against the Mets, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Osuna has struggled to a .196 average with two homers and seven RBI through 23 games with Pittsburgh this season, although he'll get another shot after spending nearly a month at Triple-A Indianapolis. Josh Bell (side) will likely head to the disabled list to make room on the 25-man roster.

July 2, 2018 06:36 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was sent back down to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

In order to make room for Monday's starting pitcher Nick Kingham, Osuna was cast off the 25-man roster. Across 23 games with the Pirates this season, Osuna has gone just 9-for-46 (.196 average) with two home runs and seven RBI. Look for him to receive regular at-bats at the minor-league level moving forward.

June 18, 2018 04:44 PM
Pirates' Jose Osuna: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

Osuna, who is hitting .340/.390/.551 through 40 games with Indianapolis, will join the Pirates for a third time this season. The 25-year-old owns a .241/.267/.483 line with two homers in 30 big-league plate appearances this season. He figures to fill a reserve role during his time with the Pirates, offering a right-handed bat off the bench.
