The Astros enter play Monday with a four-game lead in the American League West division.

Osuna took the mound for the first time since serving a 75-game suspension under the league's domestic violence policy, a penalty outranked by just two previous bans in severity.

Roberto Osuna has been added to the Astros roster as the corresponding move for McCullers Jr. hitting the Disabled List. McCullers said Saturday night he is "hopeful" that the ailment is not serious. "I'm looking forward to an opportunity to help the team again, whenever the time comes again". He returned to Houston from Los Angeles ahead of the team to be examined by team doctors.

There was initial concern that the injury could be more serious, but it appears the defending World Series champions will get their All-Star back well before the end of the regular season.

Osuna offered few details about the meeting Sunday morning in the Astros' clubhouse at Dodger Stadium and did not discuss the case pending against him.

"Our decision to acquire Roberto was based on the entirety of information that we gathered during our extensive evaluation".

Reliever Roberto Osuna, acquired last week by the Astros in a controversial trade-deadline deal, showed no signs of jitters Monday in his debut against the Giants in San Francisco. The information regarding this specific incident weighed heavily on our decision but when evaluating the entirety of the information, we felt that Roberto deserved a second chance.

He had a 2.93 ERA and nine saves this season before the suspension.
