Roberto Osuna placed on outright waivers by Houston

Roberto Osuna has been placed on outright waivers by the Houston Astros. Per beat writer Jake Kaplan, this move is essentially an early non-tender, assuming Osuna clears waivers and elects to become a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

Osuna was expected to make $10 million in arbitration this winter and given the fact he barely pitched in 2020 (4 1/3 innings with one save) before going down with an elbow injury, the Astros have decided to cut him loose. He's still rehabbing his elbow and that will certainly play a role in his free agency negotiations this winter.

Roberto Osuna (elbow) resumes throwing

Astros GM James Click says Roberto Osuna (elbow) has resumed throwing.

Fantasy Impact

Osuna is trying to rehab his elbow injury as opposed to undergoing Tommy John surgery. There remains a chance that he'll eventually have to have the operation anyways, but for now he's playing catch again.

Roberto Osuna (elbow) could possibly return this season

Astros manager Dusty Baker says Roberto Osuna (elbow) could return this season.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported last week that Osuna was going to undergo Tommy John surgery, but it now sounds as if he'll try rest and rehab first. He still isn't worth owning in fantasy right now unless you have an open IL slot.

Roberto Osuna transferred to 45-day IL

The Astros transferred RHP Roberto Osuna to the 45-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

It's a procedural move as Osuna is lost for the season. He's expected to undergo Tommy John surgery soon, which could sideline him until 2022.

Roberto Osuna reportedly recommended for Tommy John surgery

Roberto Osuna has reportedly received a diagnosis that he needs to undergo Tommy John surgery to address his injured elbow.

Fantasy Impact

Osuna is currently getting a second opinion, but there's obviously been some damage to his UCL. Therefore, it seems highly unlikely that Osuna could pitch again this season even with conservative treatment. Ryan Pressly should be the unquestioned closer in Houston going forward. To the extent he is somehow available in your league, add him immediately.
