From the MLB Site:

 

Koch's excused absence: Reliever Billy Koch is on an excused absence for personal reasons, and he likely will not rejoin the team this season.

 

The Marlins acquired Koch from the White Sox on June 17 for minor league infielder Wilson Valdez.

 

Seldom used, Koch last appeared for the Marlins on Aug. 26 against San Francisco, when he gave up one run in two-thirds of an inning.

 

Koch lives in the Tampa Bay area, and for undisclosed personal reasons, he asked the organization if he could be with his family. The club agreed. In 23 games with the Marlins the right-handed reliever was 1-2 with a 3.51 ERA. He struck out 25 and walked 20 in 25 2/3 innings with the Marlins.

 

That, plus more on AJ's elbow woes here:

Those numbers he put up as a Marlin weren't bad. A 3.51 ERA is pretty respectable.

Yes. And I think he is capable of much better. I hope he gets everything straight and sticks around for next year. Rosie will help him get on the right track. We have the makings of a nasty bullpen next year...

I hope he's OK, but I'm also glad we won't have to hear of him anymore this season.

He was a good guy in Chicago, a blue collar type of guy, one who listened to the fans and tried to please them. That is where he went wrong, he tried to please them too much and when he started to apoligize for blowing games he was all about done in Chi-town.

 

hope he does return to his Toronto/Oakland days, and hope he is well.

 

I too am glad that I hear less from him, being out of Chicago and all.

He was pretty bad over here with the White Sox. I felt sorry for the guy since he always apologized right after blowing another save. The guy tried his best to improve but he really never did any good here in the south side.
