MIAMI -- Miami Marlins catcher Miguel Olivo left the team without permission and was placed on the restricted list, manager Mike Redmond said Saturday.

Olivo, who had seen little playing time recently as the Marlins' No. 3 catcher, departed Friday after batting practice and before the team's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

"I've never been involved in something like that -- to have somebody just leave after batting practice," Redmond said. "I think everyone was kind of in shock. I know it wasn't an ideal situation for him, not getting to play a lot, but at the same time the team relies on you."

Olivo had a .203 average in 33 games this year with the Marlins. He became the No. 3 catcher when Jeff Mathis was activated from the disabled list May 14 and had only 15 at-bats since then.

Outfielder Jordan Brown was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday to take Olivo's roster spot.
