Another Update

The club has released a statement:

I’m doubting the ‘the Club will not comment further on the matter’. I’m expecting when all the facts come out they will be commenting again.

Update:

Osuna has been put on ‘administrative leave’. Basically suspended with pay while they figure out what happened. The league’s statement:

MLB takes all allegations of this nature very seriously. We are investigating the circumstances and have placed Roberto Osuna on Administrative Leave in accordance with the Joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy.

Roberto Osuna has been charged with assault on a woman, early this morning.

Police aren’t releasing details but Hazel Mae tells us it was something that happened with his girl friend.

He is scheduled to appear in court June 18th.

I don’t want to speculate on what happened. We don’t know anything more at the moment.

MLB has a ‘domestic violence policy’ which will be looking into this.
