Oviedo suspended for 8 games--or 8 weeks if we can read

Juan Carlos Oviedo/Leo Nunez
You are probably asking yourself if you are reading this "Who the heck is Oviedo?" For those of us who grew up around the Orlando area, its a small town in Southeastern Seminole county.

But that is irrelevant.

Juan Carlos Oviedo, or as he was formerly known, Leo Nunez received an 8-week suspension for Major League Baseball for using a false name.

Ovideo/Nunez was the former closer for the Marlins. He was found out towards the end of the 2011 season, one where he had saved 36-games.

Though he apparently will be able to participate in extended Spring Training.

Read our original story on Nunez from September RIGHT HERE


We thought he already was suspended. Which...we thought...was why he hasn't played yet this season. Or for that matter emerged from his home, the Dominican Republic. Though admittedly, we think it might have had to do with Visa issues.

Either way, its interesting and we'll be curious to see who decides to take the plunge and make a move on Oviedo to shore themselves up for the stretch run this baseball season.
