Closer Roberto Osuna has lost his arbitration case with the Toronto Blue Jays and will make $5.3 million in 2018, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY.

Osuna and his agent had filed at $5.8 million.

The 22-year-old right-hander still earned a hefty raise from last year’s $552,400 base salary.

Osuna was an all-star in 2017, pitching to a 3.38 ERA and 1.74 FIP in 66 appearances. He registered 39 saves on the year, but also blew an MLB-high 10.

Toronto figures to lean heavily on Osuna once again this year, especially after trading reliable bullpen arm Dominic Leone to the St. Louis Cardinals as part of the Randal Grichuk trade.

Starting pitcher Marcus Stroman is the only other Blue Jays player currently waiting for the arbitration process to play out. Stroman filed at $6.9 million while Toronto countered at $6.5 million.

Toronto’s Marcus Stroman and Tampa Bay’s Jake Odorizzi went to hearings to begin the final week of what could be the busiest salary arbitration season since 1990. Stroman asked for a raise from $3.4 million to $6.9 million on Monday in a hearing before arbitrators Edna Francis, Elizabeth Neumeier and Gary Kendellan. The Blue Jays argued he should be paid $6.5 million. Odorizzi requested a hike from $4.1 million to $6.3 million instead of the Rays’ $6.05 million offer in a case heard by Dennis Archer, Phillip LaPorte and Matt Goldberg.
