Miami Marlins C Miguel Olivo has been placed on the restricted list after the team refused his request to be released and he walked out on the team Friday, June 14. "I told them I wanted to be released and they wouldn't give it to me," he said. "I don't understand why they don't release me. I told them I wanted to be released because I have 30 days of not playing. I need to play." Olivo, who claims he has asked for his release on three separate occasions, has started just once since May 12, and has been limited to pinch-hitting duties. In a corresponding move, OF Jordan Brown has been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans to fill the vacancy on the 25-man roster.

The Miami Marlins placed OF Matt Diaz (knee) on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee bone bruise Monday, May 20, and recalled OF Jordan Brown from Triple-A New Orleans. Diaz was hitting only .167 (3-for-18) in 10 games this year. Brown can play first base and left field, but he last played in the majors in 2010. Brown was batting .261 with one homer and 12 RBIs in 37 games for New Orleans.
Fantasy Tip: Brown could have value in deep NL-only leagues he he splits time at first base with Greg Dobbs. Otherwise, he'll likely just serve as outfield depth.
