    Toronto Pitcher Roberto Osuna Arrested for Assaulting Girlfriend Hazel Mae

    Roberto Osuna Arrested, Charged With Assault

    By Jeff Todd | May 8, 2018 at 12:29pm CDT
    Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was arrested early this morning, per John Lott of The Athletic (subscription link). Osuna has been charged with domestic assault of his girlfriend, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet tweets.
    Details are scant at this point, so it’s far too soon to assess the situation. The precise nature of the allegations, possible range of legal ramifications, and potential for league punishment are all completely unknown publicly. Osuna has been released from custody and so will theoretically be available to pitch for the Jays, but otherwise his status is not clear.
    That said, given that this matter reportedly arose in the context of a domestic relationship, it would appear at first glance to fall within the purview of the MLB-MLBPA Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. It is worth reviewing some of the most salient aspects of that agreement, which has been deployed several times since it was implemented in August of 2015.
    Under that policy, commissioner Rob Manfred has the authority to “place a player accused of” such behavior “on paid Administrative Leave for up to seven days while the allegations are investigated before making a disciplinary decision,” though players also have a mechanism to challenge that treatment “immediately.” That provisional authority was exercised in the middle of the 2016 season with regard to Hector Olivera.
    Manfred also has the power to oversee the full-scale investigatory and punitive regime set forth in the policy. Any ultimate punishment is subject to arbitration, with a “just cause” standard applied to any determinations made by the commissioner’s office. Olivera was ultimately convicted of a crime and suspended for 82 games. Other cases have involved quite different fact patterns and generally resulted in less significant suspensions. Most recently, for example, Steven Wright was suspended for 15 games. Following another recent investigation, it was determined that Miguel Sano would not receive punishment given the evidence compiled. Criminal charges or convictions are not required for Manfred to issue discipline, though surely that’s weighed in the balance.

    I think she just reported on the story. The wording was misleading and poor in the lead of the story and I made it worse in the Thread title. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hazel Mae looks hella feisty. She would've probably whooped Osuna's ass.

    Seems like Roberto is a big fan of El Chapo Guzman.

    This kid needs psychological help soon.
