Diaz opted out of the 2020 season Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Diaz was considering opting out amid the Marlins' COVID-19 outbreak, but he was officially placed on the restricted list Saturday. He becomes the 15th player to opt out during the shortened 2020 campaign in which many players have concerns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Once the Marlins resume play, Jonathan Villar and Sean Rodriguez should handle most of the duties at second base.
