  • Osuna addresses new Astros teammates in closed-door meeting

Osuna, who allegedly committed assault, is saying he doesn't know what happened.

The defending World Series champion Astros begin a two-game series with the Giants on Monday night.

He declined to provide specifics about what led to his May 8 arrest in Toronto, citing an ongoing legal matter.

Osuna was officially activated on Sunday after serving his 75-game suspension, and addressed the media for the first time.

Johnny Depp's Notorious B.I.G. Movie Pulled A Month Before Release
It was directed by Brad Furman ( The Infiltrator ) from a script by Christian Contreras , based on the book by Randall Sullivan. Last month, location manager Greg "Rocky" Brooks filed suit against Depp for allegedly hurling obscenities at and punching him.

Osuna was traded July 30 from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for closer Ken Giles and minor league pitchers Hector Perez and David Paulino.

Houston Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. has a strain in his right forearm and manager A.J. Hinch said the right-hander is unlikely to return before September.

Osuna offered few details about the meeting Sunday morning in the Astros' clubhouse at Dodger Stadium and did not discuss the case pending against him.

In a statement, the Astros said their decision to acquire Osuna was based on the information that they gathered during extensive evaluation. The information regarding this specific incident weighed heavily on our decision but when evaluating the entirety of the information, we felt that Roberto deserved a second chance. We believe that Roberto will not let us down. The administrative leave subsequently was extended at least four times as Major League Baseball investigated the alleged incident. He saved 39 games in 2017 and 36 in 2016.
