"I feel good," he said through the help of a translator. "I thought it was a successful season last year and I want to have another good season this year.
"I feel good about improving in all of the fundamentals last year. Everything went good and I just want to continue working for this year."
He went 2-0 with a combined 2.27 ERA and 49 strikeouts in 43 2/3 innings between short-season Bluefield and Vancouver, and showcased three plus pitches with his fastball, slider, and changeup.
Hell-bent on improving even more, he enters his second full season armed with a brand new curveball.
"I learned it this offseason because I think I'm going to need it for this season," he said. "It will just depend on what situation I'm in. It's just going to be a different offering that I want to show.
"I'm very confident in my curveball right now. I have a lot of confidence to use it in any situation and it's going to surprise a lot of hitters."
The recently turned 18-year old feels like he still has a lot of room for improvement, especially further developing his current arsenal.
"Just perfecting all of my pitches is going to help me get where I need to be and that comes with better concentration and dedication to improve, that's the main goal."
A tireless worker, the fact he is arguably caught his opponents by surprise last year but now he has a reputation that precedes him and he says it doesn't bother him one bit.
"I feel the same," he said. "I'm very happy for the opportunity and I'm ready to go, and do even better this year."
And that is what perhaps separates Osuna from most young pitchers lucky enough to experience his level of success at such a young age -- he simply wants to keep getting better.
"I'm very relaxed actually. I'm just confident and ready to go for a successful year. To achieve even better results this year and to make the fans and people in Toronto even happier, that's my goal," he concluded.
DUNEDIN, FL - Right-hander Roberto Osuna jumped on to the national prospect scene with a breakout performance in his professional debut season last year. As dominant as he was, however, he says he's looking for even better results in 2013.
