Rays add Oviedo, Wright, Duncan & Sandoval
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays have added their second pitcher with a new name.
The Rays agreed Tuesday on a minor league contract with right-hander Juan Carlos Oviedo, who played under the fake name Leo Nunez before an eight-week suspension by Major League Baseball last year for age and identity fraud.
Last month the Rays agreed to a $3.25 million, one-year deal with right-hander Roberto Hernandez, who previously drew a three-week suspension from MLB for playing under the name Fausto Carmona.
