Rays Decline Juan Carlos Oviedo’s Option

The Rays have declined Juan Carlos Oviedo's $2MM 2014 option, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times tweets. They will instead pay a $30K buyout.

The former Marlins closer did not pitch at all in 2013, as he had Tommy John surgery during the 2012 season. The Rays purchased his contract anyway in March, then placed him on the 60-day DL. Oviedo has a 4.34 ERA, 7.3 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in seven big-league seasons.
