Juan Carlos Oviedo (Leo Nunez) Likely To Be Suspended Upon Return To Marlins

Juan Carlos Oviedo, nee Leo Nunez, hasn't shown up in Miami Marlins camp yet this year because of visa issues. Turns out the United States government frowns upon borrowing someone else's identity and pretending you're someone you're not. But from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, we have worse news for Oviedo:

Even when he’s finally able to resolve his visa issues, more bad news awaits Oviedo when he returns to the United States. According to a source, Major League Baseball intends to suspend him for six weeks after his removal from MLB’s restricted list. Several people already have been informed of the suspension.

I had a girlfriend put a relationship on hold for a while in college because she said she needed to "Find out just who she is." This must be exactly like that!

Still, a six-week suspension isn't exactly prohibitive, and there's a chance that Oviedo can return to be the Marlins' setup man by this summer, if not late in the spring.
