Astros' Roberto Osuna reinstated from restricted list


Lance McCullers Jr. was placed on the 10-day Disabled List after leaving Saturday's game against the Dodgers with elbow discomfort.

Osuna served a 75-game punishment stemming from his involvement in a domestic violence case and violation of MLB's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

Roberto Osuna addressed the Houston Astros for roughly 10 minutes on Sunday during a closed-door meeting. Osuna's attorney has said he hopes for a resolution to his case leading up to or shortly after that September 5 court date in Ontario. McCullers returned to Houston on Sunday morning to get a more detailed examination from team doctors. "I'm looking forward to an opportunity to help the team again, whenever the time comes again".

The defending World Series champion Astros begin a two-game series with the Giants on Monday night. Hinch said he doesn't have any details about Osuna's domestic violence accusation, but takes the situation seriously.

"Our decision to acquire Roberto was based on the entirety of information that we gathered during our extensive evaluation". I don't know. I'm hopeful that it's going to be good news.

Osuna was traded July 30 from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for closer Ken Giles and minor league pitchers Hector Perez and David Paulino.
