Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna impressing in rookie season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna has been excellent in his first taste of major-league action, posting a 0.98 ERA and 18:5 K:BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings across 14 appearances.

"He’s been impressive since day one, very composed," pitching coach Pete Walker said, per the Toronto Sun. "His mound presence looks like he’s been here for a while doing this, very comfortable in a good way. He attacks the strike zone and is not afraid of any situation. So far he hasn’t backed down from any situation that we’ve put him into. He’s been a real pleasant surprise and out expectations are for him to continue to be really productive up here."

The organization believes the young pitcher could serve as a starter or closer long-term.

"I think he could turn into being a starter right now and be fine," manager John Gibbons said. "Generally starters have three (quality) pitches and he has them so he’s ahead of the game."


Blue Jays' Gibbons credits addition of changeup to Osuna's success


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Blue Jays rookie reliever Roberto Osuna bounced back from his first blown save of the season Monday at Boston to throw 1 2/3 scoreless innings in a 5-1 win Thursday against the Indians. He allowed one hit and had two strikeouts.

The right-hander has been a strong addition to the Toronto bullpen. He lowered his ERA to 1.38 and has 15 strikeouts in 13 innings. Manager John Gibbons credits Osuna's success to his increase in changeup usage, which he said was inspired by catcher Russell Martin.

"He's been great all year," Gibbons said of Osuna, per MLB.com. "For a young kid, he's very poised and has a lot of confidence. You could really start to see in spring training when Russell took over with him and really made him use his changeup a lot. That's really made a big difference in his career to this point. Coming into this year, he was basically fastball/slider. Russ just really made him use it in spring training and it's a big pitch for him. So now he's got three pitches he can go to."


Brett Cecil back in closer's role for Blue Jays


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Blue Jays reliever Brett Cecil is returning to the closer's role, manager John Gibbons announced Thursday. Gibbons added Aaron Loup and Roberto Osuna will serve as the primary setup relievers.

Cecil was removed as the team's closer April 9 after a rocky start to the season. Rookie Miguel Castro was elevated to the closer's role after Cecil was removed from the ninth-inning responsibilities.

Castro initially thrived in the closer's role before running into his own issues. He is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA, two saves and two blown saves in his last five outings. Gibbons said he will use Castro in low-leverage situations to help get him back on track.


Blue Jays' Gibbons continue to show confidence in Castro, Osuna


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Blue Jays rookie relievers Miguel Castro and Roberto Osuna have both endured some struggles as of late

Castro suffered his second loss of the season Monday against the Red Sox, which came two days after he suffered his second blown save. He has allowed at least one run in four of his last five appearances.

Osuna has allowed one run in two straight appearances and suffered his first blown save Monday.

"[Castro has] had a couple of tough ones," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after Monday's loss, per MLB.com. "Maybe we'll back him down a little bit. But same way with [Roberto] Osuna, we have confidence in these guys. We're asking a lot out of them, but it's just the way it goes. You find some things out.

"I love both of them, I think they're both going to be great pitchers when it's all said and done, but we're asking a lot out of them, and I'm not sure how fair that is."

It appears Castro might be pitching his way out of save opportunities, as Brett Cecil could return to the closer's role shortly. Still, Gibbons is hoping the 20-year-old Castro can overcome his recent struggles.

"I hope he understands the reason I'm putting him in there is because I have confidence in the kid," Gibbons said. "I also understand how tough it is in the big leagues, and you take your lumps. He's a tough kid, he really is. He's going to be a [heck] of a pitcher."


Castro, Osuna, Cecil unavailable for Blue Jays on Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Blue Jays relievers Miguel Castro, Roberto Osuna and Brett Cecil will not be available for Friday's game against the Orioles, according to TSN.ca.

All three pitchers threw at least one inning in Thursday's 6-3 win against the Yankees. Castro finished off the win for his first career save.


Blue Jays' Gibbons outlines bullpen roles for Osuna, Castro


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons explained Monday the plans he has in store for rookie relievers Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro, per Sportsnet.ca.

“Osuna, we’re not sure exactly how we’re going to break him in, we’ll let the game dictate that, I’m not afraid to use either one of them in the middle of the game or later,” Gibbons said. “Osuna may be more of a multi-inning guy than Castro, but we envision Castro being in a pretty important role.”

Castro made his MLB debut Monday against the Yankees, tossing 1 1/3 scoreless innings in a 6-1 win. He finished off the game, which included one strikeout.

“He’s a cool cat,” Gibbons said of Castro. “He comes out there, you give him the ball, and he’s just staring at you with a little grin on his face. He’s a special guy. He’s got the arm, he can pitch, but he’s one of those guys with a slow heartbeat.”


Miguel Castro, Roberto Osuna, Devon Travis make Blue Jays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Blue Jays finalized their opening day roster, adding three players to their 40-man, in order to break camp with them on the team.

Non-roster invitees who made the team are: RHP Miguel Castro, who went 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA, RHP Roberto Osuna, who was 2-0, 2.19, and infielder Devon Travis, who hit .359.

To make room, the Jays placed pitcher Marcus Stroman on the 60-day disabled list and designated pitcher Juan Pablo Oramas for assignment.

Outfielder Michael Saunders (knee) and infielder Maicer Izturis (groin) were placed on the 15-day DL.


Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna, Miguel Castro earn spot on roster


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Blue Jays pitchers Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro have both made the Opening Day roster, according to the National Post.

Osuna and Castro were both competing for spots on the pitching staff and the team is unsure if they will go with 7 or 8 in the bullpen, according to the report.

Osuna posted a 2-0 record with a 0.82 ERA in seven spring training appearances while Castro posted a 1.64 ERA with 10 strikeouts and no walks this spring.

"We're roomies, we work together, I'm so glad to have him on the team ... it will be awesome," Osuna said Wednesday to Sports Net.


Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna tagged with blown save Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna last just 1/3 of an inning Saturday in relief against the Braves. Osuna was tagged for one run on three hits with one walk and earned a blown save. Osuna didn't sound to worried about his struggle Saturday, reports MLB.com.

"I'll learn from today and I'm going to try to make those adjustments for the season," Osuna said. "I think it was a good day.

"That's going to happen in the season so I've got to get ready. I think everything was there. I just missed a couple fastballs a little bit up and they hit it."


Jays option Delabar, increase chances of Osuna, Castro making 'pen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) The Blue Jays announced Tuesday they optioned reliever Steve Delabar to minor-league camp. Delabar -- who had a 3.86 ERA, one save, nine strikeouts and one walk in seven spring innings -- said he was shocked by the move, per the National Post.

"They told me that some other guys have stepped up. I’m assuming it’s some of the younger guys," he said.

Manager John Gibbons didn't hold back in his assessment of Delabar's spring performance.

"I’m glad he’s pissed off," Gibbons said. "He should be pissed off. Why wouldn’t he be? We’re all pissed off. We wanted him on the team.

"We need a multiple-inning guy. He’s basically right now a one-inning pitcher. That’s what it came down to."

Delabar's demotion could pave the way for Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro to make the Opening Day roster. Both players have been impressive in camp. Castro has tossed nine scoreless innings, while striking out eight and not issuing a walk. Osuna also hasn't allowed a run in 9 2/3 innings, while striking out eight and walking two.


Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna shines in spot start Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna was a late insertion into the starting lineup Sunday after Marco Estrada was scratched but shined in his opportunity, giving up just two hits and one walk in 3 2/3 innings while striking out two.

"I'm very happy, man, I can't describe it," Osuna said after the outing, per MLB.com. "It's a great experience. It's what everybody dreams. It feels pretty good. ... I've learned more confidence from today, facing those guys, and I feel pretty good."

Osuna missed much of last season following Tommy John surgery but was able to return to action in July. He has delivered 9 2/3 scoreless innings this spring while striking out eight and walking two. Osuna has yet to be ruled out for the team's final 25-man roster.

(6/17/2013) Blue Jays prospect Roberto Osuna returned to action following an elbow injury for Class A Lansing, MLB.com reports Monday.

Roberto Osuna may be facing Tommy John surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2013) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos revealed that starting pitcher prospect Roberto Osuna has a ligament tear in his right elbow.

Osuna could be a candidate for Tommy John surgery, but the team will wait and see how his initial rehab stint goes before making a decision, which should come within a month, according to the National Post. The 18-year-old went 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA through five starts for Class A Lansing before getting hurt.
