Oviedo gets $1.5 million, 1-year deal from Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays have re-signed reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo to
a $1.5 million, one-year contract.
The deal, which could be worth up to $2.9 million if he reaches

known as Leo Nunez.
In addition to his base salary, Oviedo could earn $50,000 for
appearing in 30 games, $150,000 each for 35 and 40 games, $200,000
each for 45 for 50 games and $350,000 for 55 games.
The deal also calls for Oviedo to receive $50,000 for 35 games
finished and $100,000 for 40 games finished.
