The Marlins have placed Matt Diaz on the disabled list with a bruised left knee and called up outfielder Jordan Brown from Triple A New Orleans to take his spot on the roster.
Diaz hasn't played a whole lot since receiving his call-up, going just 3 for 18 overall. But Diaz was 2 for 7 with a RBI as a pinnch-hitter.
Brown, 29, appeared briefly in the majors with Cleveland in 2010, hitting .230. With New Orleans this season, he was hitting .261 with one home run in 119 at bats.
In other news, the Triple A Zephyrs activated third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff, who had been on the DL.
