Carlos Marmol taken deep for the loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Marlins reliever Carlos Marmol capped off a team-wide meltdown Wednesday, earning the loss in a 10-7 defeat to the Nationals.

Marmol allowed four runs in one inning of work, all of which came off the bat of Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. Werth's grand slam proved to be the game-winning hit, as Marmol took to loss after allowing four runs on two hits and a walk.

Marmol had opened the season with four scoreless outing, but now has a 7.2 ERA with five hits and two walks in five innings of work. 


Carlos Marmol to debut Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Marlins pitcher Carlos Marmol is set to debut Sunday, according to the Miami Herald.

Carlos Marmol believes he's fixed flaws in delivery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Marlins reliever Carlos Marmol said his past command issues have been more mechanical than mental, according to The Miami Herald.

"It was a lot of things, the mechanics and my stuff," Marmol said. "What can you say? Bad year. When you have a bad year, things happen. For any pitcher, when you don't do your job, it makes it frustrating for everybody.

"But that's in the past. I don't even think about it anymore. I'm positive. I'm here with a new team and will try the best I can."

Marmol said the Dodgers coaches worked with him last season on ironing out his mechanical flaws, and he continued to work on his delivery over the winter.
"It was simple," Marmol said of his mechanical issues, which he feels have been corrected. "I wouldn't say it was my confidence."

Dodgers add Carlos Marmol to NLCS roster


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2013) The Dodgers have added reliever Carlos Marmol to the NLCS roster, MLB.com reports.

Marmol had a rough year, as he finished with a 4.41 ERA over 49 innings between Chicago and Los Angeles. However, he was much improved with the Dodgers, as he posted a 2.53 ERA with 27 strikeouts (but 19 walks) over 21 1/3 innings. His stuff is still unhittable, but the control makes every appearance an adventure. He replaces Paco Rodriguez on the roster.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Carlos Marmol placed on outright waivers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2013) Dodgers reliever Carlos Marmol, who was acquired in a trade with the Cubs Tuesday, has been placed on outright waivers, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Report: Carlos Marmol still with Dodgers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dodgers don't take long to DFA Carlos Marmol


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Carlos Marmol no threat to Kenley Jansen


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2013) I have no idea why the Dodgers acquired Carlos Marmol. I don't know why they think they need him, with all the bullpen depth they already have. Just wanted another right-hander, I guess.

But I know he's no threat to Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. When Jansen blew his first save after inheriting the closer role June 15, manager Don Mattlingly didn't even consider going back to Brandon League, saying he didn't "want to start that up again." If League's all-to-frequent ninth-inning meltdowns wore Mattingly down, why on earth would he turn to Marmol?

League is practically Dennis Eckersley, by comparison.


Carlos Marmol moving to Los Angeles


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2013) Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol has been traded to the Dodgers Tuesday.

Marmol will attempt to fix a struggling bullpen. Brandon League has not performed well in a closer role, and could be replaced. Marmol has also struggled, blowing three games. He has a 5.86 ERA in 27 2/3 innings. 


Dodgers close to acquiring Carlos Marmol


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2013) The Dodgers are close to acquiring reliever Carlos Marmol from the Cubs, ESPN Chicago reports. The Cubs designated Marmol for assignment June 25, and as such they have until Friday to trade or release him. 

Marmol has a 5.68 ERA over 27 2/3 innings with Chicago this year. He is striking out 10.4 batters per nine innings, by far his lowest since his first season as a reliever in 2007. Additionally, he continues to struggle with control, walking 6.8 batters per nine innings. But Marmol did have a 3.42 ERA in 61 games in 2012 and a 2.55 ERA in 77 games in 2010, so the Dodgers may hope to capture some of that magic.

According to ESPN Chicago, Marmol has included the Dodgers on his six-team limited no-trade clause list, although it's unclear if he would exercise his right to block the deal. It's also unclear who the Dodgers would be trading, but it's likely to be a low-level minor league player or cash.


Cubs designate Carlos Marmol for assignment


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2013) The Cubs have designated Carlos Marmol for assignment Tuesday.

Marmol has struggled, with a 5.86 ERA in 27 2/3 innings. Marmol notched just two saves, but had five opportunities. He walked 21 hitters in 27 2/3 innings. The team called up outfielder Brian Bogusevic to take Marmol's roster spot. 


Carlos Marmol won't receive save opportunities


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2013) Cubs relief pitcher Carlos Marmol will no longer receive save opportunities, even when regular closer Kevin Gregg is unavailable, MLB.com reports.

"[Marmol] has pitched well in the seventh and eighth, and even pitched well in some tie games in the ninth and the 10th inning, too," Cubs manager Dale Sveum told MLB.com Monday. "Obviously, he’s having difficulty with the last three outs and a save. We have our closer [in Gregg] when he has his rest. [Marmol] is back in the same role he was in."

Marmol received a save opportunity Sunday for the first time in almost two months and blew it, giving him a 40 percent success rate in his five save opportunites.


Alfonso Soriano says Carlos Marmol 'used to be good'


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2013) Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol has struggled this year, and now his teammates are starting to express their frustrations with the former closer, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Cubs outfilder Alfonso Soriano had some harsh words for the reliever. "[Marmol] used to be good. I think he's good, but he's lost a little bit of his confidence, and this game is all about confidence. … I hope he gets it back and becomes the Marmol I know," Soriano said.

Soriano's comments came after Marmol gave up four runs in just one-third of an inning Sunday.

Marmol has a 6.08 ERA and a 6.36 FIP in 26 2/3 innings this year. 


Carlos Marmol blows another save


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2013) Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol blew his third save in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Marmol allowed a three-run walk-off home run to Kirk Nieuwenhuis to cap a four-run ninth for the Mets. Marmol allowed three hits and a wak in 1/3 of an inning. His ERA balloned to 6.08. But with Kyuji Fujikawa out for the season and the Cubs likely looking to deal Marmol at the trade deadline, it wouldn't be surprising if he retains his closer's job.


Carlos Marmol tagged for third loss


by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2013) Chicago Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol gave up four earned runs on two hits and three walks Saturday as Arizona clubbed its way to a 12-4 win.

Marmol managed just one out after coming into the game in the eighth inning. Paul Goldschmidt smacked a go-ahead grand slam off him and that was all she wrote.

The beleaguered Marmol actually had recently been effective, allowing only one earned run in his previous nine appearances dating back to May 5. During that stretch he had 10 strikeouts and just two walks.

On the season, Marmol has a 5.48 ERA with 21 strikeouts and 17 walks in 21 1/3 innings pitched.
