Marlins Place Leo Nunez On Restricted List
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [September 22 at 1:14pm CST]
The Marlins placed closer Leo Nunez on the restricted list and suspended him for undisclosed reasons, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Agent Andy Mota declined to comment on his client, who was headed to the Dominican Republic.

Players on the restricted list do not count toward a team's 25-man or 40-man roster. Teams do not always pay players on the restricted list, so Nunez could be at risk of losing some of his $3.65MM salary depending on the circumstances of the move and whether the MLBPA objects on his behalf.

Nunez will be arbitration eligible for the fourth time this coming offseason and MLBTR's Tim Dierkes projects a $5.8MM salary for the right-hander in 2012, assuming the Marlins tender him a contract. Back in July, Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the Marlins intended to keep Nunez in 2012.

Nunez, 28, has a 4.06 ERA with 7.7 K/9, 2.9 BB/9 and 36 saves in 64 1/3 innings this year.

Oh boy...

Source? I can't see why a family issue would land him on the restricted list...

Leo Nunez was NOT suspended by #Marlins. Was placed on restrictive list & returning to native DR to tend to personal, non-baseball matter.

He has been playing under a fake name and is actually a year older than stated on his I.D.


According to the Associated Press, Leo Nunez was sent back to the Dominican Republic this week because he was found to have been using a fake name.
Nunez was placed on the restricted list Thursday and is not expected to return to the major leagues this season. According go the AP's sources, the right-hander's real name is Juan Carlos Oviedo and he's actually a year older than his listed age of 28. The Marlins have reportedly known about the issue for several months, but it's not yet clear how they plan to resolve it.

I believe once they work out his immigration status (which I believe they will) Nunez will probably come back to the MLB next season as a free agent (non-tendered).

But what name will he go under? Assuming he is invited back.
