Astros release statement defending Roberto Osuna trade, activation

The latest addition to the disabled list is outfielder George Springer, who was put on the 10-day DL with a sprained thumb, suffered Sunday while sliding into second base while playing the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

McCullers left Saturday's game after tossing some warmup pitches in the bottom of the fifth inning. He returned to Houston from Los Angeles ahead of the team to be examined by team doctors.

Roberto Osuna addressed the Houston Astros for roughly 10 minutes on Sunday during a closed-door meeting. Lance has ten wins so far this season.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has met privately with the team's owner and general manager ahead of reliever Roberto Osuna being activated following a 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. McCullers said Saturday night he is "hopeful" that the ailment is not serious.

"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.

Osuna was traded July 30 from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for closer Ken Giles and minor league pitchers Hector Perez and David Paulino.

Osuna has appeared in 23 games this season, turning in a 2.93 ERA and 9 saves in 15.1 innings of work.
