Osuna, 23, has a 2.93 ERA with nine saves in 15 appearances this season.

Police would not give any more details about the alleged incident to protect the identity of the victim.

Major League Baseball released a statement Tuesday, saying it has placed Osuna on administrative leave for now.

The Blue Jays open a six-game homestand Tuesday night against Seattle. "We are investigating the circumstances in accordance with the Joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy".

The club added it would not comment further because of the ongoing police investigation. "According to a police report [he] has been charged with assault and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, June 18, 2018".

Osuna, a relief pitcher who hails from Juan Jose Rios, Mexico, is in his fourth season with the Jays.
