Osuna 'in good spirits'

According to the league, Osuna agreed not to appeal the suspension. He is also participating in a confidential and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program supervised by the joint policy board of the league and players' association.

Osuna earns some $5.3 million per year, but will forfeit the salary he would have earned during his suspension.

While Osuna won't be eligible to return to the big league mound until August 4, he will be allowed to get back in shape with a minor league affiliate starting this weekend.

"He's in good spirits, he's looking forward to coming back and playing," Basile said. "He loves the Toronto Blue Jays, he loves Blue Jays fans."
