John Lott of The Athletic reported this news on Tuesday, noting the Toronto police have confirmed the news.

A star pitcher for the Blue Jays was arrested by Toronto police on Tuesday on charges of assaulting a woman. Osuna was released from custody Tuesday and has a court appearance scheduled for June 18.

Osuna is playing this season on a one-year contract with a base salary of $5.3million guaranteed, according to Spotrac. Osuna was arrested at the scene and taken to 14 division. But it can extend Osuna's administrative leave beyond the seven-day period. It's at the commissioner's discretion, although subject to challenge before an arbitation panel. Osuna could challenge any discipline before Irvings.

"We are taking the matter extremely seriously, as the type of conduct associated with this incident is not reflective of our values as an organization", the team said in a statement. He's appeared in 15 games this year with a 2.93 ERA and nine saves.

U.S. job openings jump to record in March
With rising vacancies nearly helping to close the gap with the ranks of the unemployed, the job market is increasingly tight. That's not the same as saying, of course, that every unemployed worker out there will qualify for one of these vacancies.

In 2017, he became the youngest player in Major League Baseball history to reach 75 saves and the youngest player in Jays history to represent the team at the all-star game.

Last June, Osuna publicly acknowledged he was dealing with anxiety, saying he was out of sorts mentally and feeling lost. Instead, the club made the quick decision to go with a T-shirt featuring infielder Yangervis Solarte. Tyler Clippard could get the first opportunity to take over the closer's role.

"It depends on the investigation, it depends on the information that comes", Atkins told media before Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners at Rogers Centre. "Hopefully, when it's all said and done, he's back with us, it's behind him and things turn out fine".

Past players that have been suspended for domestic assault have received varying levels of disciplinary leave. No details on the age of the victim were released by police in order to protect their identity, Sidhu said. Those suspensions spanned anywhere from 15 games for Wright to 51 games for Reyes. Major League Baseball says it is investigating. "The punishments have been strong in cases of guilty and not guilty".
