Mon­day’s game against the vis­it­ing Hous­ton Astros marks the re­turn of for­mer Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna, who was charged with as­sault in an al­leged do­mes­tic in­ci­dent by Toronto po­lice on May 8.

On June 22, Osuna re­ceived a 75-game sus­pen­sion from MLB. He was traded to the Astros on July 30 and is 9-for-9 in save op­por­tu­ni­ties with an ERA of 2.29. Osuna has a court date set for Tues­day, though it’s not known whether he will ap­pear in court.

He was traded for pitch­ers Hec­tor Perez, David Paulino and Ken Giles, who is 24for-24 in clos­ing sit­u­a­tions this sea­son, in­clud­ing 12-for-12 with the Jays.

The game will also mark the first time the Brothers Gur­riel, Lour­des and Yuli, face each other at the ma­jor-league level. The brothers smacked a pair of homers each on Fri­day. Yuli, also an in­fielder, is 34 years old and Lour­des is 24.
