Osuna on the other hand has a slider in his arsenal already, it's just a matter of learning to use it effectively.
I understand that but it really seems like he dropped off pretty sharply in the rankings. That would make me assume they don't have confidence in his ability to develop that third pitch and he may end up relegated to the bullpen. I just thinks it's a little too early to count out an ability for him to develop it but I think this year will be very important in that aspect. Maybe that's why AA was willing to move him. Sell high on him if they've lost that faith as well. I guess time will tell now.
