Carlos Marmol left the Reds’ Triple-A team without permission

Carlos Marmol, who’s pitching at Triple-A for the Reds affiliate, has been placed on the restricted list because he “left the club without permission.”

Marmol signed a minor-league contract with the Reds after being released by the Marlins, but was struggling with a 7.36 ERA and six walks in 3.2 innings for Louisville.

Considering the Reds’ minimal investment and Marmol’s recent ineptitude on the mound it seems odd that they wouldn’t just release him. He’s still just 31 years old, but Marmol’s career has gone off the rails in a hurry.

    maybe he’s going to walk the earth like cain or Samuel L.

    I’m guessing that they didn’t just release him because they don’t want to pay a player who seemingly walked out on his team, regardless of how much he’s making.

      He’s on a minor league deal. They don’t have to pay him if they release him.

    Now I have an image of Cain throwing a knuckle ball, and I’m not sure who’s to blame.

    It’s okay, Carlos. A lot of Reds player haven’t seemed to be showing up this season, either.

    if they release him that would mean jocketty was wrong about him and he will never admit that. he believes that whoever he signs will turn their careers around upon signing with the reds. this is why they have guys like bernidina and santiago as their bench players.

    Can he come pitch for the Cubs again?

    The dude might need help. Maybe the club should find out if he’s got an issue.

    It is a good thing that Dusty is not managing . He would already be in Cincinnati. I could hear Dusty’s pressed right now. “He was a little wild but we still believe in him “.
