On Monday, the Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros completed a trade that sends former Jays closer Roberto Osuna to Houston and Ken Giles, Hector Perez, and David Paulino back to Toronto in return. Currently, Osuna is serving a 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. According to ESPN, this is the longest such suspension, for a player who violated that policy, since MLB implemented it. The Astros and their "zero-tolerance policy" are in question today as they give Osuna a shot to be in their clubhouse.

Osuna has been retroactively been suspended since May

The last time that the former Blue Jays right-hander threw for the club was May 6 when he tossed one inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. Soon after that, Toronto suspended him following allegations of Osuna assaulting a woman on May 8.

The details of the case surrounding Osuna have not been made to the public, and his lawyer said at the time of his official suspension, which occurred in late June, that the acceptance of the suspension what not an admission of guilt.

Osuna has not put out any public response that included responsibility or an apology.

As he serves this suspension, Osuna will attend to the case hearings, where his next court date is on Wednesday in Toronto.

After all of this, on top of a zero-tolerance policy, the Astros are ready to accept Osuna. But why?

Houston's zero-tolerance policy has one important catch

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow was very excited to have Osuna join the team. After all, he is a talented young arm. But the questions he received weren't about his new player's ability to close out a game or stay healthy, it was why did they accept a player when the organization has a zero-tolerance policy in matters like the one surrounding Osuna?

"We are confident that Osuna is remorseful, has willingly complied with all consequences related to his past behavior, has proactively engaged in counseling, and will fully comply with our zero-tolerance policy related to abuse of any kind," Luhnow made in a statement.

Luhnow also said in relation to the policy that Osuna's action occurred while he was under contract with another team, therefore, the Astros are allowed to acquire players with history as long as it did not happen while apart of the Houston Astros organization.

It sounds like a dirty loophole in their policy for the ability to acquire a talented arm.
