TORONTO — Ontario’s privacy commissioner is looking into two potential privacy breaches involving police, including one that concerns a surveillance image of Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna.

Information and Privacy Commissioner Brian Beamish says in a statement that the incidents under investigation involve the Peel regional and Toronto police forces.

A spokeswoman for the commissioner later provided more details in an email to The Canadian Press.

Andrea Corlett says the incident involving Toronto police concerns the "alleged unauthorized disclosure of a CCTV image of Roberto Osuna."

The Blue Jays relief pitcher was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball Tuesday after being charged with assault.

Corlett says the incident involving Peel police is about the "alleged unauthorized disclosure of police documents obtained from the Police Information Portal."

That case concerns three people who were arrested for cocaine possession in 2016.

Blue Jays All-Star Roberto Osuna could face significant suspension .
Toronto Blue Jays All-Star closer Roberto Osuna remains on paid administrative leave after he was arrested and charged with assaulting a woman in Canada earlier this month. While a ton of details have not come out regarding the situation in question, this one report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports suggests that Osuna could be facing a “significant suspension” from MLB.“MLB has taken such incidents with the utmost seriousness, and has suspended players even in cases where there was no physical contact alleged,” Heyman noted.
