Roberto Osuna Signs With NPB’s Chiba Lotte Marines

Reliever Roberto Osuna has signed with the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball, the team announced yesterday. Mexican publication Beisbolpuro first reported the agreement (Twitter link) last week.

Osuna has spent the 2022 season playing in the Mexican League, where he’s appeared in 12 games with the Diablos Rojos del México. He tossed 13 1/3 innings of three-run ball, striking out 15 batters and collecting six saves. That strong work caught the attention of the Marines, who figure to install Osuna at the back end of their bullpen.

The 27-year-old hasn’t appeared in a major league game since 2020, when he was outrighted off the Astros roster. Osuna had missed much of that season with an elbow injury that limited him to four appearances. That malady initially came with a recommendation he undergo Tommy John surgery, but a second opinion suggested he could rehab without going under the knife. He’s spent the past couple seasons pitching in Mexico and seems to have recovered from the elbow issue, considering how effective he’s been for the Diablos Rojos.

Hopefully he gets his butt kicked hard and vanishes from pro ball altogether. Sadly MLB has shown you can beat women as much as you want and still have a job (see Chapman and assorted others).

One of the few pitchers to absolutely dominate Aaron Judge:

Other than being a shithead, it's the one thing I always remember about Osuna.

The Japanese are saying , "Thank God we got Osuna! I'm so f---ing glad we got Osuna!"
