Right-hander Roberto Osuna, the Blue Jays' No. 2 prospect, pitched a perfect inning on Tuesday in the Gulf Coast League. It was his first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery last July.

Osuna, ranked No. 75 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, struck out the leadoff batter, induced a groundout and finished the inning with another strikeout. While Osuna's day was over after one inning, the Blue Jays went on to defeat the Phillies, 10-3.

Before undergoing surgery last year, Osuna made 10 starts with Class A Lansing. He went 3-5 with a 5.53 ERA and struck out 51 batters in 42 1/3 innings. At 18 years old, he was the youngest player in the Midwest League on Opening Day 2013.

In addition to Osuna's return, the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays got a lift Tuesday from two members of the 2014 Draft class. Max Pentecost, the 11th-overall pick, went 5-for-5 with two doubles, two runs and two RBIs in the second game of his professional career. He served as the designated hitter after catching Monday in his debut.

Right-hander Sean Reid-Foley, the Blue Jays' second-round pick this year, pitched two scoreless innings in the second game of his career. He struck out three batters, walked none and allowed one hit. It was a more successful outing than his debut June 27, when the 18 year old gave up two runs and got just two outs.
