Osborn ends his minor league managerial career with the Yankees on a high note, winning the 2019 Eastern League championship, leading the Trenton Thunder to a 76-62 record. In addition to managing with the Yankees, he spent three seasons as the manager of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League. In nine seasons as a manager, he owns a career 574-511 record, having made the playoffs in every year except 2018.
Prior to becoming a manager, Osborn played 546 games in the Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros organization, as well as three seasons with Southern Maryland. Om his minor league career he hit .274/.343/.371 with 89 doubles, 11 triples, and 26 home runs while driving in 248 runs. With the Blue Crabs, Osborn hit .299/.373/.449 with 440 hits, 87 doubles, nine triples, 39 RBIs, and 227 RBIs.

The Marlins are of course lead by Derek Jeter and feature many former Yankees in management positions including former Yankees Director of Player Development, Gary Denbo who now holds a similar position with the Marlins.
