Rays decline option for reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo
NOV 04, 2013 10:44p ET
Oviedo, 31, was signed to a minor league deal last January after spending the previous three seasons with the Florida/ Miami Marlins organization. Formerly known as Leo Nunez, he appeared in only three minor league games in 2012 within Miami’s system before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in September 2012.
Oviedo spent the entire 2013 recovering from the issue.
Also Monday, the Rays activated right-hander Alex Colome, outfielder Brandon Guyer and right-hander Jeff Niemann from the 60-day disabled list.
