Florida Marlins closer Leo Nύñez will not face charges in the Dominican Republic


Despite using false documents to sign a professional baseball contract, Florida Marlins closer Leo Nύñez will not face charges in the Dominican Republic authorities said.

Tuesday, Central Electoral Commission President Roberto Rosario urged other athletes in similar circumstances to contact authorities and help them identify whoever provides false documents.

In Nύñez case, Hector Pena Diaz is suspected to be the person that falsified the documents that was in Nύñez possession at the time Dominican authorities questioned him.

A person familiar with Nύñez’s immigration status told The Associated Press last week that his real name is “Juan Carlos Oviedo” and that he is 29, a year older than listed in the team media guide.

Nύñez is currently on the Major League Baseball’s restricted list.
