• Miguel Olivo has cleared waivers, and he's elected to take free agency. The veteran catcher was placed on the restricted list by the Marlins on June 15 after he walked out on the team before a game the previous day. Olivo sought more playing time and asked for his release, and when that wasn't immediately granted on June 14, he packed up and left. The Marlins removed the catcher from the restricted list on Wednesday and designated him for assignment.
• Infielder Chris Valaika, recovering from a broken left wrist, is playing rehab-assignment games at Class A Jupiter. Top prospect Christian Yelich has been playing in rehab games at Jupiter since Wednesday. Yelich is on the Minor League DL with an abdominal strain. He went deep on Friday, marking his second straight game with a home run.
