The Marlins have placed 35-year old righty swinging outfielder Matt Diaz on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19th, due to a left knee contusion. Diaz has played in 10 games for the Marlins so far this year and he is 3 for 18 (.167 avg, .433 OPS) with 1 run scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI. The Marlins have called up 29-year old lefty swinging OF/1B Jordan Brown to replace Diaz on the active roster. Brown played in last night’s game for the Marlins and he was 0 for 1 with a whiff. Brown played in 37 games in AAA-ball for the Marlins earlier this year and he was 31 for 119 (.261 avg, .641 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer and 12 RBIs. Brown’s lone major league experience until last night came in 2010 with the Cleveland Indians. Brown played in 26 games for the Indians in 2010 and he was 20 for 87 (.230 avg, .582 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs.
