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.
