Some while back, Marlins closer Leo Nunez was found out to be Juan Carlos Oviedo, having used falsified documents to secure a player contract. This was kind of a big deal, and Oviedo flew home to the Dominican Republic, where he cooperated with the ongoing investigation. Because he was so cooperative, it was determined that he wouldn't face charges.
Then, Thursday, reports emerged that Oviedo had been arrested. Was his case taking a turn? Could Oviedo face significant discipline after all?
Turns out, no. That was easy. AP:
Miami Marlins reliever Leo Nunez was arrested Thursday in his native Dominican Republic but then quickly released, with authorities saying he will not face charges stemming from an investigation into his use of false documents to sign a professional baseball contract.
Welp, so much for that. Oviedo is very much still not facing charges. He's currently trying to get a new visa so he can come back to the United States, but whether he's still a Marlin if and when he does has yet to be determined. The Marlins have already signed a free agent closer, and have until next week to decide whether to tender Oviedo a contract. They probably will.
