Josh Osich got credited for a save Sunday, striking out one in one inning against the Brewers.
Osich came in after the Reds took the lead in the top of the ninth. Osich hasn't been, and shouldn't continue to be, in the saves mix for Cincinnati. More likely, other relievers were unavailable for the save situation on Sunday.
Left-handed reliever Josh Osich has been traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for a player to be named later.
The Cubs wanted to add a left-handed reliever and have now added two in Chafin and Osich. In 13 appearances this season, Osich has a 5.74 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings.
Josh Osich (0-1) took the loss Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one over two innings versus the Mets.
Osich served as the opener in Monday's game against the Mets. It looks like the 31-year-old lefty will be used in a variety of roles this season but more than likely will have no fantasy value.
Josh Osich was named to Boston's 30-man roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Osich spent last season with the White Sox where he made 57 appearances and had a 4.66 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 67 2/3 innings. The 31-year-old veteran looks like he will have a middle relief role and will not be in the mix for saves or holds which means he will not have any fantasy value.
Josh Osich agreed to terms with the Red Sox on a one-year deal worth up to $850,000.
Osich is a journeyman reliever who found moderate success with the Giants during the 2019 season. He will attempt to claim a spot in the Red Sox bullpen in 2020.
