Osuna agrees to peace bond

UPDATE: 11:20 a.m.

An assault charge against former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna has been withdrawn.

In exchange, Osuna agreed to a peace bond.

The 23-year-old was charged in May with assault in an alleged domestic incident.

Osuna's lawyer had said his client was remorseful but planned to plead not guilty had the matter gone to trial.

Major League Baseball suspended Osuna without pay for 75 games for violating its domestic violence policy.

The Jays later dealt him to the Houston Astros.

Osuna came on to a chorus of boos as the Astros beat the Jays in Toronto on Monday in the first of a three-series match-up.
