Matt Diaz Released

After hitting .200/.250/.200 in Spring Training, which wasn't enough to make the team want to keep him around, Matt Diaz has been released. It already looked like a long-shot that Diaz would make the big-league squad, even before the team brought in Ben Francisco and Brennan Boesch, so this isn't much of a surprise. Even if you were to say Matt just had a bad spring, that doesn't make up for the fact that he only hit .220/.280/.333 in 118 plate appearances with the Braves last season, and .263/.302/.323 in 268 plate appearances in 2011.
