Tampa Bay Devil Rays rookie outfielder Elijah Dukes? wife said he threatened to kill her, the St. Petersburg Times reported Wednesday, and she has filed for a restraining order against him twice in the past month.

NiShea Gilbert Dukes said that Dukes has sent her a photo of a handgun to her cell phone and she fears for her life, the newspaper reported.

Gilbert Dukes played a voice mail allegedly from Dukes, the Times reported. "You dead, dawg. I ain't even (expletive)," the angry voice said, the newspaper reported. "Your kids, too."

Dukes declined to comment on the allegations, referring only to a statement from the team, the newspaper reported.

"The end of our marriage is a personal matter for my wife and me," the statement read, the Times reported. "Out of respect for my family, especially my children, I wish to keep our proceedings private."

Gilbert Dukes said she lives "in fear," the newspaper reported. "When (the Devil Rays) go out of town, I come home. When they're at home, I go stay with my mother. I shouldn't have to live like that because he's a baseball player."

The Devil Rays declined comment on the matter, saying they knew nothing of the allegations, the newspaper reported.

Dukes, 22, is in his first season with the Devil Rays. He is batting .231 with eight home runs and 13 RBIs.

So let me get this straight his "wife's" name is Gilbert?!? Hasn't he done jail time? Did he meet Gilbert in jail?
Just another heart warming story on Dukes.

I'm assuming they're not his kids, since he calls them "your."
