Kotchman (oblique) was recalled from his rehab stint and subsequently released, the Palm Beach Post reports.
The Marlins have opted not to bring back Kotchman, who went 0-for-20 in six games with the team. In 18 High-A rehab appearances, Kotchman slashed .295/.377/.361 with eight RBI. A team in need of a veteran first baseman could pick him up for the remainder of the season.
