Edgar Osuna Outrighted To Minors

LHP Edgar Osuna, Kansas City's first-round pick in the Rule 5 Draft last December, was outrighted to the Royals' Northwest Arkansas Double-A team today.  Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star says (via Twitter) the move was made possible since Atlanta, Osuna's original team, declined their option to bring Osuna back.  The southpaw then passed through waivers without being claimed.

Osuna posted a 3.37 ERA and 4.15 K-BB ratio over his four years in the Braves' organization, getting as high as the Double-A level last season.  The 22-year-old has made 76 appearances, 48 of them starts.

Nice move for the Royals. He wasn’t ready for the majors, but still has potential, and now can develop in a better environment. Seems like the Braves did Dayton Moore a solid here.

Wren shouldn’t be ding anyone a solid. I’d rather Osuna taking up a roster spot than the likes of that crappy Marek.

Osuna seems to have potetential, at the very least as a solid lefty reliever, wonder why the Braves didn’t want him back.

Another former Atlanta Brave for the Royals. What is this, number 23?

I’m a bit surprised the Braves didn’t want him back and that he made it through waivers, given the little bit of hype he has received this offseason. Still, I’m glad we retained him without even having to trade somebody.
