Unclaimed on waivers, Carlos Marmol accepts Dodgers’ assignment to Triple-A

As soon as the Dodgers acquired Carlos Marmol from the Cubs earlier this week they placed him on waivers and predictably no other team wanted anything to do with the $5 million or remaining on his contract.

Marmol passed through waivers unclaimed and was outrighted off the 40-man roster, accepting an assignment to Triple-A.

By swapping Matt Guerrier for Marmol the Dodgers picked up about $200,000 in international signing bonus money, so regardless of whether Marmol ever joins Los Angeles’ bullpen they got some value out of the deal. And if he can put together a good stretch in the minors Marmol certainly still has enough upside to think he can contribute in the second half as a middle reliever.

    Wow. I’m really surprised the Tigers didn’t pick him up just to see if they can work with him, with the state of their bullpen. He’d probably be better than Valverde at this point.
