Roberto Osuna: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After a successful 20-save campaign in 2015, Osuna began his sophomore season with the newly acquired Drew Storen threatening to take the closer role. By the end of 2016, the latter was no longer on the roster and Osuna had locked down 36 saves in 42 chances. Among AL relievers, the right-hander finished sixth in saves and tied for fourth with 72 appearances. He demonstrated elite command by averaging more than a strikeout per inning and 1.7 BB/9. The 22-year-old's average fastball (95.8 mph) is the real deal, while his 0.93 WHIP ranks among the best in MLB. His Achilles heel was a tendency to give up the long ball. After serving up three home runs over 39.2 innings prior to the All-Star break, Osuna surrendered six in 34.1 second-half innings. Needless to say, his post-break ERA of 3.15 was significantly worse than the 2.27 he posted before the Midsummer Classic. Osuna has the tools to be a perennial top-10 closer.
Osuna relieved all of three games in recent years entering last season, so naturally he would become one of the better relievers in baseball, saving 20 games last season with a 2.58 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. The big question is, "where does he go from here?" He wants to return to being a starter, and the Blue Jays seem inclined to oblige him, having acquired Drew Storen from the Nationals in January. He's 21, and one would imagine the Jays would limit his innings in 2016 if he were to indeed return to starting, as large workloads at that age -- and large jumps in workloads -- are risky plays for young pitchers. As a reliever, he’s rosterable in all formats. As a starter, his value is at least cut in half because it is tough to envision him amassing more than 150 innings.
After undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2013, Osuna surprisingly made seven starts for High-A Dunedin in the final month of the 2014 season. He continued to build his arm strength after the season, pitching in the Arizona Fall League, and he should be ready to pitch without significant restriction in 2015. Osuna shows significant polish for a 19-year-old, and before his surgery he had better control of his pitches than former Jays farmhand Aaron Sanchez. In his brief run at High-A to finish the season, Osuna had no problem missing bats, punching out 30 in 22 innings, but his control is clearly not all the way back. Following Tommy John surgery, control and command are often the last things to return, and this will need to be the primary area of focus for the young righty in 2015. Rather than return Osuna to High-A Dunedin, the Jays have opted to make him a part of their bullpen to begin the season. If he pitches well, it's not out of the question to think that he may obtain a high-leverage role by the end of the year.
Osuna's ascent up the Toronto organization was stalled in 2013, as he underwent Tommy John surgery in late July. Prior to the procedure, he held an ugly 5.53 ERA for Low-A Lansing, albeit with excellent peripherals (10.9 K/9, 2.3 BB/9). Assuming he makes a full recovery, Osuna is still one of the better pitching prospects in the Toronto organization. At best, he'll return to minor league action late in the 2014 season.
