Beetle Posted September 17, 2004 Share Posted September 17, 2004 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.
