Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu says the charge is for one count of assault, and provided no further details. "According to a police report [he] has been charged with assault and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, June 18, 2018".

In the meantime, Major League Baseball has put Osuna on administration leave.

In a statement to the Canadian Press, Major League Baseball said the league "takes all allegations of this nature very seriously".

The league said it was investigating the circumstances of the charges in accordance with the joint domestic violence policy between the league and the MLB Players Association.

Details of the alleged incident weren't immediately known. The standout relief pitcher was allegedly charged with assaulting a woman. All we can determine is that the incident likely occurred late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

The Blue Jays released a statement of their own on Tuesday.

'As this remains an ongoing investigation by Toronto Police, the Club will not comment further on the matter'. He has 104 saves in his major league career and made the American League All-Star team last season. But he's been a very good arm out of Toronto's pen since 2015.

Osuna has nine saves in 15 appearances this season with a 2.87 ERA and 0.92 WHIP. In the meantime, Major League Baseball will conduct its own investigation into the arrest. Those suspensions spanned anywhere from 15 games for Wright to 51 games for Reyes.

News of Osuna's arrest was reported by The Athletic.

The Blue Jays support that decision. Toronto's bullpen now has the best ERA in the American League.

The 23-year-old Osuna is now in his fourth M.L.B. time, all with the Blue Jays.
