Description: Marlins reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo has a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.
Insight: Oviedo was preparing to return from a suspension on July 23 but that won't happen now. The right-hander was expected to compete for the Marlins closer role, so this is good news for Heath Bell and Steve Cishek.

Description: Marlins reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo will begin working out at Miami's spring training complex Saturday in preparation for his late July return, according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.
