The Rays have re-signed reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo, formerly known as Leo Nunez, reports Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. The right-hander hasn’t pitched in the Majors since 2011 with the Marlins.
Oviedo will turn 32 years old on March 15. He was signed by the Rays prior to the start of the 2013 season even though he was recovering from Tommy John surgery. He missed the entire season and threw all of three pitches in 2012 — 2.2 innings with Single-A Jupiter and 0.1 innings with Triple-A New Orleans.
