TORONTO – The next step in Roberto Osuna’s disciplinary process with Major League Baseball looms with Monday marking the seventh and final day of an initial period of paid administrative leave for the Toronto Blue Jays closer.

League officials have been probing the circumstances around a charge of assaulting a woman laid by Toronto police last week, and under terms the joint domestic violence policy agreed to with the players association in August 2015, the commissioner’s office has five options:

• Reinstating the player from leave;

• Imposing immediate discipline;

• Requesting that the players association extends the leave;

Richard Griffin: Roberto Osuna’s arrest for assault brings necessary repercussions

I love the kid not for what he’s done for us on the field, but because of who he is and my relationship with him over the years.

• Defer discipline to a later date;

• Impose a paid suspension pending resolution of legal proceedings.

Much will depend on what officials have learned in the week since Osuna’s arrest last week, although given that the 23-year-old’s first court date is June 18, it’s hard to imagine him being reinstated before then.

Some precedent may be found in how baseball dealt with Jose Reyes on Feb. 23, 2016. The infielder, then of the Colorado Rockies, was placed on paid leave pending completion of criminal proceedings against him in Hawaii, with the commissioner’s office reserving judgment on the incident until after the legal process had wrapped up.

On April 11, a Hawaii judge approved the dismissal of a domestic abuse charge against Reyes after Reyes’ wife refused to speak with prosecutors. Still, on May 13, 2016 baseball suspended him through May 31 retroactive to Feb. 23, covering all of spring training plus the first two months of the season.

By Jeff Todd | May 8, 2018 at 12:29pm CDT. Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was arrested early Leave for up to seven days while the allegations are investigated before making a disciplinary Maybe not, but in that case MLB may end with a lot of egg on face and encourage more false claims

Reyes also agreed to contribute “a total of $100,000 to one or more charitable organizations focused on preventing and treating survivors of domestic violence,” commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement at the time.

Outfielder Hector Olivera, then of the Atlanta Braves, was dealt with similarly in April 2016.

He was placed on leave right after he was arrested when a women told authorities she was assaulted at the team hotel. Once the seven days were up, the leave was extended and on May 26 he was handed an 82-game suspension without pay before his case had been adjudicated.

That September he was sentenced to serve 10 days in jail after being found guilty on a misdemeanor domestic assault charge.

The two cases suggest the Blue Jays aren’t likely to have Osuna available to pitch any time soon and once he is eligible to return, the club will have a difficult decision to make.

The Colorado Rockies released Reyes, although he signed with the New York Mets shortly afterwards and remains with them now.
