Astros release statement defending Roberto Osuna trade, activation

Roberto Osuna is slated to join the Houston Astros on Sunday

Lance made it through four innings before his outing ended.

The Astros activated Roberto Osuna from the restricted list Sunday following his 75-game suspension for violating MLB's domestic abuse policy. He returned to Houston from Los Angeles ahead of the team to be examined by team doctors.

Elon Musk tweets he may take Tesla private
If Musk can't prove the allegedly secured funding at $420 per share, he may be accused of market manipulation or market fraud. He added that he hoped all shareholders would remain and that all Tesla employees would "remain shareholders of the company".


In his first action since coming off a 75-game suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence policy, Osuna used only five pitches to record a flawless eighth inning and then picked up the victory thanks to a ninth-inning Marwin Gonzalez home run. McCullers said Saturday night he is "hopeful" that the ailment is not serious.

Osuna still faces a court case in Toronto, stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident earlier this season, and after Monday's appearance hinted that a change of scenery and the game itself offered a respite.

Hail at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado kills 2 animals
Reports say that medical personnel set up a triage at the entrance to the zoo due to the amount of people injured from the hail. Some of the largest hail fell on the southern side of Colorado Springs with hailstones measuring almost as large as softballs.


Osuna offered few details about the meeting Sunday morning in the Astros' clubhouse at Dodger Stadium and did not discuss the case pending against him. That included as much information as we could gather about the specific incident and the charges that were filed but it also included as much information as we could gather about his actions before and after the incident, as well as his personal reputation among his former teammates and coaches.

"At this point, we don't know what's happened, what's going to happen and we have to wait for that to play out", Osuna said through a translator. He posted 39 saves and a 0.86 WHIP a year ago.
