Ugly, but factual note: Because of the suspension (where big league time is not accrued), the 23-year-old Osuna became subject to an additional year of team control this season.
Osuna, who is now with the triple-A Buffalo Bisons, has been serving a 75-game suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence policy after being arrested and charged with assault by Toronto police on May 8.
"Perez can blow his fastball by hitters, ranging from 93-99 miles per hour with two-seamers with nice sink and four-seamers with explosive riding life", MLB Pipeline's scouting report says of him. I'll even allow for the possibility that he's completely innocent, and will prove as much once the court proceedings have come to a conclusion. We don't know the whole story. Obviously, I've said some pretty inflammatory things about stuff like this in the past, and I stand by my words. The case is ongoing, and details are not public. But it will be interesting. This comes after the Astros acquired Minnesota reliever Ryan Pressley last week. Vasquez was later released by the organization.
Perez has split time this season between double-A Corpus Christi and single-A Buies Creek. "You deserve all that is coming your way!" In 2016, the Colorado Rockies designated Jose Reyes for assignment soon after he served his suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence policy. "It's always brutal, always sickening". He was an All-Star previous year, when he went 3-4 with 39 saves and a 3.38 ERA. Major League Baseball looks bad because (accused) domestic abusers are eligible for the postseason despite a suspension while players who are suspended for the use of performance-enhancing drugs are not eligible for the postseason.
"We did a lot of background work and whatever we were able to do as third parties". It appears they have one in Osuna.

A crucial pickup at the trade deadline often galvanizes a major league clubhouse, energizing players appreciative that their front office went the extra mile in an effort to win a championship.
Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow described Roberto Osuna as "one of the elite relievers in our game", and "we are excited" to welcome him "to our team".
The 27-year-old Giles is 0-2 with 12 saves and a 4.99 ERA this season, and was now in the minors. The organization and all of baseball have tried to hold themselves to a high standard of personal conduct, and the allegations against the young closer put the Blue Jays in a hard spot. He's expected to join them Tuesday.
"I love my team, but refuse to root for this guy", wrote another fan on Twitter. "Hopefully that happens here". I knew that there would be a section of the fan base that would welcome him back with open arms, but I was also certain there would be some backlash against the club for putting him back on the field this season. The late-game relief was a problem because closer Ken Giles did not perform well this year, and after being pulled from a game July 10, he was perceived to curse out his manager, A.J. Hinch.
The right-hander has 104 saves in 221 appearances over three-plus seasons with Toronto.
"I love the kid. I was very happy with that conversation", Luhnow said. "He's had some issues he's had to deal with. I wish him well but more importantly more so than baseball I hope he gets his life together".
