Jays reliever Osuna ordered to steer clear of alleged victim, booze and condo: Court document

Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was ordered to remain 100 metres away from a building near Lake Shore Blvd. W. and Strachan Ave., a court document stated.

The 23-year-old reliever was also banned from communicating with Alejandra Roman Cota, the woman he allegedly assaulted on May 8.

One of his release conditions also prohibits him from buying, possessing or drinking alcohol and another forbids him from possessing weapons.

After he was charged last week, Osuna was placed on “administrative leave” by Major League Baseball. That leave was extended past seven days and is set to expire on Victoria Day.

Osuna is scheduled to appear at Old City Hall courthouse in domestic violence court on June 18.

On Aug. 21, 2015, Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association announced an agreement on the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy to cover all big-league players.

According to the agreement, the league commissioner may place a player accused of domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse on paid administrative leave for up to seven days while the allegations are investigated before making a disciplinary decision.

The agreement contains procedures for a player to immediately challenge that placement before an arbitration panel.

Jose Reyes (51 games), Aroldis Chapman (30 games), Jeurys Familia (15 games) and Steven Wright (15 games) have all been suspended by the league for domestic violence incidents and a conviction isn’t needed for discipline to occur under the policy.

In 15 appearances for the Jays this season, Osuna has a 2.93 earned run average and nine saves.

Last season was a trying one for the native of Juan Jose Rios, Mexico.

Despite being named to the American League allstar team, Osuna recorded 10 blown saves, the most in the majors and the third highest in club history.

He also suffered from undisclosed personal issues during the season and left the team briefly in September to be present for the birth of his baby.

Osuna finished 2017 with 39 saves, a 3.38 ERA, a 3-4 record and 83 strikeouts in 64 innings.
