Marlins release OF Mike Cameron

The Florida Marlins have released outfielder Mike Cameron.

The 38-year-old Cameron was let go after Monday’s victory over

the Atlanta Braves. Manager Jack McKeon said the team wanted to

finish out the season using younger players.

Cameron started the season with Boston, hitting .149 with three

homers and nine RBIs before he was dealt to Florida in early July

for a player to be named. He batted with .238 with six homers and

18 RBIs for the Marlins.
