The Miami Marlins have activated Juan Carlos Oviedo from the restricted list and have placed the right-hander on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, reports Joe Frisaro of MLB.com:

While Oviedo’s eight-week suspension for falsifying his identity is up, the right-hander suffered an injury during his time in the minors and isn’t expected to pitch again this season. The injury is a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, and while this is usually a precursor to Tommy John surgery, it’s not yet known if Oviedo will require the procedure.

Prior to sustaining his injury, Oviedo logged three minor league innings this season, surrendering a run on two hits and a walk. Last season, Oviedo, under the name of Leo Nunez, appeared in 68 games for the Marlins, logging an ERA and WHIP of 4.06 and 1.212 while compiling 36 saves.
