2019 Fantasy Outlook
An arrest on an assault charge in May and the subsequent suspension sidelined Osuna for an extended period of time. Though the assault charge was ultimately withdrawn after the complainant said she would not travel to Toronto to testify, the incident still casts a shadow over his 2018 season. While serving the 75-game ban, Osuna was traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros. He achieved great results for Houston over the final two months, quickly taking over the closer role and converting all 13 of his save opportunities down the stretch and into the postseason, although the strikeouts weren't really there (7.5 K/9). The skills were still strong -- 95.2 mph average fastball velocity, 16.9% swinging-strike rate, 3.5% walk rate with Houston -- and there's little reason to think the Astros will bring someone aboard in 2019 specifically to take over the ninth inning.
