RP - HOU - IL10
Roberto Osuna was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right arm soreness.
Osuna exited Saturday’s loss to the Angels early with right arm soreness. He underwent an MRI on Sunday, but the results haven’t come out yet. Osuna has no official timetable for his return, but will miss at least the next 10 days. Look for Ryan Pressly to get first crack at the at the Astros’ closer job.
Roberto Osuna left Saturday night's game against the Angels with arm discomfort. He is headed back to Houston for an MRI.
Osuna is one of the few pieces holding up the Astros' bullpen at the moment, so the team and fantasy players alike would suffer immensely if he is to miss a chunk of time. Judging by manager Dusty Baker calling this injury a 'real downer,' don't expect Osuna back soon. More information will be available after his MRI.
Roberto Osuna picked up the save on Monday against the Mariners, striking out two in the ninth to preserve the 8-5 win.
Osuna started to fall in drafts leading up to Opening Day as it was being reported he hadn't thrown off a mound since arriving to summer camp. Still, he was ready to go for the Astros' first save opportunity of the year. Meanwhile Ryan Pressly is dealing with a sore elbow, which makes Osuna's job as safe as can be moving forward.
Astros James Click told reporters that Roberto Osuna threw a bullpen on Monday.
This was supposedly his first mound work since arriving to summer camp. Fantasy players have been wondering what to do about Houston's closing situation considering the circumstances, but it is now sounding as if Osuna won't miss much time at all. Ryan Pressly is expected to fill in for however long Osuna takes to get ready. The 25-year-old was unable to go through his usual routine during the COVID-19 shutdown, which is what caused his late arrival to camp.
Roberto Osuna may not be ready for Opening Day day according to Astros manager Dusty Baker.
Osuna initially reported late to Astros summer camp and still hasn't thrown off the mound. The team has been coy about why Osuna showed up tardy in the first place, although Baker said it was "no fault of his own." Still, the fact he hasn't thrown off the mound is not encouraging. Ryan Pressly would be next in line for save opportunities if Osuna were to miss the opening series and beyond.
