Blue Jays place Roberto Osuna on 10-day disabled list, release Melvin Upton

Blue Jays place Osuna on 10-day DL, cut Upton

The Toronto Blue Jays finalized their opening day roster Sunday, placing closer Roberto Osuna on the 10-day disabled list with a sore neck and releasing outfielder Melvin Upton Jr.

Right-hander Dominic Leone was recalled from Triple-A to take Osuna’s roster spot for Monday’s opener at Baltimore, while infielder Ryan Goins will also start the season with the Blue Jays.

Osuna pitched a scoreless inning in Friday’s 1-1 exhibition tie with Pittsburgh. The right-hander, who had 36 saves in 42 chances last season, is eligible to return April 9.

Upton was acquired from San Diego last July 26 and hit .196 with four homers and 16 RBIs in 57 games with the Blue Jays. The Padres are responsible for all but $1 million of his $16.45 million salary.

Toronto selected the contract of catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A and designated right-hander Mike Bolsinger for assignment.
