Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna reveals struggles with anxiety off the field

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 12:53

Prior to Friday's series opener between the Blue Jays and Royals, Morales popped into the Royals clubhouse.

Unless you've watched this team before.

The 22-year-old Osuna has 19 saves with 37 strikeouts in 29 innings pitched this season. Tepera was then asked to go through an up-down: throwing, sitting, then throwing again.

The article touches mostly on Eric Hosmer's draft process and then Moore turning the team into a World Series victor over the last few years.

The Royals had every reason to be exuberant on Friday. "It's a big outfield out there (Kauffman Stadium), especially if you're hobbling, too", Gibbons said of not playing Pearce.

When he's at his best, Roberto Osuna gives the impression that he is as sharp mentally as he his physically, required tools of the trade for one of baseball's best relief pitchers.

And it all happened while Osuna looked on from the dugout rather than doing his thing on the mound, where he has converted 18 consecutive save attempts. And rookie outfielders have to learn to track a ball with an upper-deck crowd in the background.

The Royals regained the lead in the bottom of the inning when Alex Gordon's first triple of the year scored Escobar.


Erick Aybar hit a tying home run in the sixth inning, Luis Torrens walked with the bases loaded against Koji Uehara in the eighth and the San Diego Padres stopped a three-game losing streak by beating the Chicago Cubs 3-2. Escobar singled home Salvador Perez with the first run of the inning.

Ike Opara scored on a bicycle kick in Sporting Kansas City's 2-1 victory over the LA Galaxy on Saturday night.

When batters put Loup's first pitch in play they hit.383; when Gordon puts a first pitch in play he hits.351.

He started at second base and batted seventh against the White Sox.

Marco Estrada allowed three runs in seven innings and was charged with a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Eric Hosmer homered and Whit Merrifield drove in Escobar with a sacrifice fly for the other Royals runs.

The winning run came off a 93 mile per hour fastball offered up by Grilli that was well over the head of Jays left fielder Dwight Smith Jr. Nevertheless, it's always nice to see a guy who's spent almost six years in the minors finally get his chance on the big stage.
