    The Marlins signed veteran reliever Carlos Marmol to a one-year, $1.25 million free agent contract this offseason with the hope that he might provide good value in a setup role. That experiment is already over.

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Miami Marlins. The Big Question: Can the Marlins lose fewer than 100 games? The Marlins lost exactly 100 games…

  4. The Marlins sign Carlos Marmol

    Carlos Marmol

    ESPN’s Enrique Rojas reports that the Miami Marlins have signed Carlos Marmol to a one-year, $1.25 million deal. Not bad at that price, even though I wouldn’t put too much trust in the guy. I certainly would have a hard time bringing him into a jam given his walk rate, which is easily the worst…

  5. Carlos Marmol has discussed a Major League deal with three teams

    Carlos Marmol

    Teams are expected to watch free agent reliever Carlos Marmol pitch for the Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Winter League playoffs, according to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors. MLBTR reports that Marmol has discussed a Major League deal with three different teams, though it is unclear if any of those offers are still…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  8. 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…

  9. Dodgers’ playoff roster: Ethier and Capuano make it, League and Marmol left out

    Andre Ethier spent the past few days trying to convince the Dodgers and their training staff that he was capable enough of playing through an ankle injury to be an asset in the NLDS and apparently it worked. Ethier has made the opening-round playoff roster, but will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties after sitting…

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

    Jul 4, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    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…

  11. Dodgers acquire Carlos Marmol from Cubs for Matt Guerrier

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    In a swap of relievers who were designated for assignment, Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs have traded Carlos Marmol and about $200,000 in international signing bonus money to the Dodgers for Matt Guerrier. Marmol certainly has a lot more upside than Guerrier, who’s been little more than middle relief-caliber since signing…

  12. Dodgers close to acquiring Carlos Marmol from Cubs

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Dodgers “are closing in on a trade” for Carlos Marmol, who was designated for assignment by the Cubs last week. Marmol is owed about $5 million for the rest of this season, so presumably the Cubs have agreed to eat a significant portion of that money to…

  13. Reds release Mark Prior

    Mark Prior’s latest comeback attempt involved working as a reliever at Triple-A for the Reds, but he’s been on the disabled list with a shoulder injury since late April and today they released him. Since moving to the bullpen full time last season Prior has 47 strikeouts in 35 innings at Triple-A, but that also…

  14. Cubs give Carlos Marmol his walking papers

    Jun 25, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    As expected the Cubs just released Ian Stewart from Triple-A, but they also made an even bigger move by designating Carlos Marmol for assignment. Marmol has been awful this season, making it easy to forget that not so long ago he was one of the most dominant relievers in baseball and his career ERA in…

  15. Alfonso Soriano on Carlos Marmol: “He used to be good”

    Carlos Marmol blew another save yesterday, turning a 3-0 ninth-inning lead into a 4-3 loss to wipe away seven shutout innings from Matt Garza. He was only in the game because Kevin Gregg had pitched four games in a row, but the former closer served up a walk-off three-run homer and afterward teammate Alfonso Soriano…

  17. Play of the Day: the Mets go back to Little League

    Jun 16, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v. New York Mets

    Though they came back in grand fashion against Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol, the Mets had staked the Cubs to a 3-0 lead in the fifth after a litany of errors reminiscent of a Little League game. With runners on first and second and two outs in the top of the fifth against Mets starter Jeremy…

    Florida Marlins v Chicago Cubs

    In today’s series finale against the Mets, Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol allowed four runs and recorded just one out in the ninth inning as the Mets stormed from a 3-0 deficit to walk off as 4-3 winners. Cubs starter Matt Garza pitched brilliantly over seven innings and James Russell tossed a perfect eighth to bring…

  19. Sexual assault civil suit against Carlos Marmol was dropped

    Jun 11, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    This winter Carlos Marmol was accused of sexual assault by a 24-year-old woman in the Dominican Republic and the Cubs reliever in turn accused the woman of blackmail and extortion, filing a counter lawsuit. Marmol said back in February that he was “very pissed off” about the charges, claiming: “I didn’t do anything. The stuff…

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  21. Cubs reliever Kyuji Fujikawa needs Tommy John surgery

    Kyuji Fujikawa Getty

    Kyuji Fujikawa was placed on the disabled list earlier this week with a strained forearm and the Cubs just announced that the 32-year-old reliever will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery. That means Fujikawa will miss the remainder of this season and likely be sidelined well into 2014 as well. After eight seasons as a dominant…

  22. Eric O’Flaherty has torn ulnar collateral ligament in elbow, Tommy John surgery next?

    May 18, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Eric O'Flaherty AP

    UPDATE: It looks like Eric O’Flaherty is facing the worst-case scenario, as David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that he was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. He’ll see Dr. James Andrews next week, but it would be a surprise if Tommy John surgery wasn’t the next step. The…

  23. Cubs activate Kyuji Fujikawa from the disabled list

    May 10, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Kyuji Fujikawa Getty

    Kyuji Fujikawa is back from the disabled list after missing the past four weeks with a strained forearm. The injury cost him a chance to take over for Carlos Marmol as the Cubs’ closer, so he’ll slide back into a setup role in front of new closer Kevin Gregg. Chicago’s ninth-inning situation figures to remain…

  24. Kevin Gregg is officially the Cubs’ closer

    May 8, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Chicago Cubs

    Three weeks ago Kevin Gregg was unemployed. Then he signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs and made his way back to the majors at age 34. And now he’s their closer. That’s been fairly obvious for a while now, as Gregg has saved five games in two weeks, but whether it’s with Gregg or…

    Carlos Marmol

    Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol imploded yesterday, walking two batters and hitting another to load the bases with no outs in the eighth inning attempting to hold on to a 4-2 lead. Manager Dale Sveum replaced Marmol with Hector Rondon, who allowed all three of Marmol’s runners to score and the Reds eventually went on to…
