Dodgers add Carlos Marmol and Edinson Volquez for NLCS

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers are making some changes to the playoff roster for the NLCS, adding Carlos Marmol and Edinson Volquez and removing Chris Capuano and Paco Rodriguez.

Capuano is a surprise removal after throwing three shutout innings of relief against the Braves in Game 3 of the NLDS and Rodriguez has a 2.21 career ERA, although he’s really struggled of late. By dropping left-handers Capuano and Rodriguez the Dodgers now have J.P. Howell as the lone southpaw in the bullpen.

Marmol threw 21 innings for the Dodgers after coming over from the Cubs in July, posting a 2.53 ERA and 27 strikeouts, but he also issued 19 walks and generally wasn’t counted on in key spots. Volquez tossed 28 innings with a 4.18 ERA and 26/8 K/BB ratio after signing with the Dodgers in August following his released by the Padres.
