Astros reportedly acquire Roberto Osuna from Blue Jays for Ken Giles, more
The Houston Astros acquired reliever Roberto Osuna from the Toronto Blue Jays for reliever Ken Giles and more, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
Rosenthal says the rest of the Blue Jays' yield is unknown. Osuna should provide a significant upgrade to the Astros' bullpen when he returns from his 75-game suspension for domestic violence on August 5. The assumption is Osuna will replace Hector Rondon as Houston's closer upon return.
The 23-year-old right-hander averaged 4.7 FanDuel points and converted 9-of-10 save chances for the Blue Jays this season while recording a 2.93 ERA with 13 strikeouts and 1 walk across 15 1/3 innings (15 appearances) before being suspended.
