    The Cubs just named Kyuji Fujikawa as their closer last Sunday, but they’ll now have to go back to the drawing board for the ninth inning. According to Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago, Fujikawa has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a muscle sprain in his right forearm. Rafael Dolis has been called…

  2. Cubs activate Carlos Marmol, send Rafael Dolis to minors

    Carlos Marmol

    Rafael Dolis‘ reign as Cubs closer was short and ugly, and today the 24-year-old rookie was demoted back to the minors after being stripped of ninth-inning duties. Dolis’ departure coincides with Carlos Marmol‘s sooner-than-expected return from a hamstring injury, as the Cubs deemed him ready to come off the DL after he tossed back-to-back scoreless…

  3. Cubs place Carlos Marmol on disabled list with strained right hamstring

    Carlos Marmol

    Carlos Marmol‘s miserable start to the season just took another unfortunate turn. The Cubs announced this morning that Marmol was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. The erratic right-hander was pulled from last night’s game against the Brewers due to the injury and traveled back to Chicago to undergo an…

  4. Carlos Marmol has lost his job

    Carlos Marmol

    Darn. Mere hours after I started a push to get closer implosions called “Marmols,” the new stat’s namesake loses his job.  David Kaplan of CSNChicago.com reports: Marmol officially informed by Dale Sveum that he is out as Cubs closer. No defined role as of yet. — David Kaplan (@thekapman) May 4, 2012 I guess they…

  5. Carlos Marmol implodes again

    UPDATE: The bullpen choke is complete. Rafael Dolis stayed on to pitch the 10th and the Reds won it on a sacrifice fly. After a Dolis throwing error, of course.  Bad day for the Cubbies. 3:29 PM: As this post goes up the Cubs-Reds game is still going on.  But it shouldn’t be. And for…

  6. Kerry Wood, Carlos Marmol ugly it up again

    Carlos Marmol

    In the Cubs’ first game Thursday, Kerry Wood took a blown save in the eighth and Carlos Marmol got the loss in the ninth. In the second game Saturday, Wood took the loss in the eighth and Marmol got tagged with a blown save in the same inning. Wood got the call to start the…

  7. Kerry Wood shows us his best Carlos Marmol

    Kerry Wood

    Entering a 1-0 game with one on and two outs in the eighth, Kerry Wood walked three straight batters to tie up Thursday’s matinee between the Cubs and Nationals. It wasn’t a case of Wood completely losing the strike zone, but he did keep just missing after getting to two strikes on both Adam LaRoche…

  8. Running down the rosters: Chicago Cubs

    Starlin Castro, Darwin Barney, Marlon Byrd

    Forget about 2012 and probably 2013 as well; the Cubs are thinking long-term after luring Theo Epstein from Boston as their new showrunner. This year’s club won’t necessarily be one of the worst in baseball — the pitching depth could help it avoid that fate — but there’s also little in the way of upside…
