Blue Jays prospect Conine says he's motivated after going 52nd overall Article Image 0

Major League Baseball suspended Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna for 75 games following his arrest in May for a charge of assault, MLB Communications announced Friday.

Osuna has agreed to not appeal the decision, and the decision will be retroactive back to May 8, shortly after Osuna's last game played with the Blue Jays. Osuna will wind up missing 89 days, which would cost him about $2.54 million of his $5.3 million salary. He as placed on administrative leave, and has been waiting for the league to investigate the charges.

"As this remains a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time", the Jays statement reads.

Osuna appeared in 15 games this season, claiming a save in nine of those contests.

John Gibbons the Toronto manager said he did not have a reaction other than accepting what the league does and live and trust with that while letting it take its course. "Hopefully that all gets worked out, both sides, and everybody gets the help they need and everything works out fine for all involved".

Osuna's lawyer made a court appearance on the assault charge on Monday.

Asked if it was better the Blue Jays now knew the length of the penalty, Gibbons said: "I guess that helps". Osuna's suspension is the longest one doled out by Manfred under the Domestic Violence policy. The agreement allows Major League Baseball to discipline a player for an incident of domestic violence even if there are no charges or a trial.

Major League Baseball conducted its own independent investigation into these charges and handed down their own suspension, which is completely separate from the criminal case.

Reliever Aroldis Chapman was the sport's first player who was disciplined under the domestic violence policy when he was suspended by the league for 30 games to start the 2016 regular season.
