|Carlos Marmol wants to stay in Chicago|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Responding to an Internet report in which someone overheard him saying he wanted out of Chicago and a fresh start, Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol refuted that claim on Wednesday.
"I don’t know who that guy is and why he tweeted that," Marmol told MLB.com.
The right-hander admitted that he met with his agent, Paul Kinzer, on Wednesday but said the two did not discuss leaving Chicago.
"I'm not going nowhere," Marmol said. "I’m very happy here. I can’t wait until they do something so I can stay here. I always talk about how I love Chicago, I love being here, I love my teammates, I love everybody here."

(5/5/13) Cubs relief pitcher Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless inning of relief during Sunday's series finale against the Reds.
Marmol, who relieved Edwin Jackson in the sixth, needed just 11 pitches to retire the side in order. He struck out one during the 7-4 loss.
Marmol, who allowed three runs without recording an out the previous night, is just happy to be back on the mound.
"I'm glad he gave me the ball," Marmol said of manger Dale Sveum. "It didn't matter what inning. I told him I want to pitch, no matter what. He gave me the ball. He trusts me and I went out there and had a good inning today."

|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(5/4/13) Carlos Marmol's milestone appearance Saturday was painfully similar to the performances the Cubs reliever has turned in recently. Marmol appeared in his 453rd game with Chicago to move past Lee Smith for the franchise record, but allowed three runs in the eighth inning without getting an out in a 6-4 loss to Cincinnati.
The hard-throwing righty replaced James Russell to begin the inning and walked the first two batters he faced before plunking Brandon Phillips with a pitch to load the bases. Hector Rondon then took over, allowing all three inherited runners to score and Marmol was pinned with his second loss of the season while his ERA swelled to 6.17. He had posted 10 consecutive scoreless appearances before Saturday.
"I feel very good and that's it," Marmol said. "I didn't throw strikes today. That's what happened."
|Sveum chooses closer based on matchup|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) Cubs manager Dale Sveum told MLB.com on Monday that he does not tell his relievers beforehand who will serve as closer before each game. He added that he goes by best the matchup to decide who to throw in the ninth inning.
“It’s been working,” Sveum said Monday. “I’m not going to say it’s a fix-all and that you don’t want to name a closer. You definitely don’t want to rock the boat when things are going good in the back of the bullpen when everybody is healthy and ready to go that night. It could be one of four guys. It depends on the matchups.”
Carlos Marmol, Kevin Gregg, Shawn Camp and James Russell are the "four guys" Sveum was referring to.
|Carlos Marmol picks up shaky save|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/25/13) Cubs relief pitcher Carlos Marmol was tabbed for a save opportunity Thursday against the Marlins with his team up 4-3 and converted it for his second save of the year. Marmol put the first two guys on base with a walk and a single but came back to get the next three, stranding the tying run on second base.
Marmol hasn't allowed a run since his first three outings of the season, lowering his ERA to 4.35. He should remain in the mix for saves in Chicago until Kyuji Fujikawa returns, and maybe longer.
|Carlos Marmol continued his descent of the Fantasy ranks last season as he struggled again in the closer's role for the Cubs. He converted 2 of 4 save chances with a 6.23 ERA over his first 12 appearances before being taken out of the role and missed time in the first half due to a hamstring injury. The right-hander was more effective after returning and regained his role in the ninth inning. He finished the year 20 for 23 in save chances and posted a 3.42 ERA in 61 appearances. While he struck out 72 in 55 1/3 innings pitched, it was the third straight campaign his strikeout numbers dropped. The Cubs tried trading the 30-year-old in the offseason to the Angels, but since the deal broke down, Marmol heads into 2013 as the closer again. It's beginning to look like Marmol's dominant 2010 campaign was more of an aberration and he has not shown much over the last two seasons to indicate he will be a dominant closer again. Owners should plan on targeting Marmol as a late-round option in most formats on Draft Day. (Updated 12/11/12)|
