Cubs cut struggling Marmol
CHICAGO (AP) — The Cubs designated former All-Star Carlos Marmol for assignment on Tuesday, parting ways with the struggling reliever.
Chicago has 10 days to trade or release him or send him outright to the minors if he clears waivers. The 30-year-old Marmol was 2-4 with two saves and a 5.86 ERA in 31 appearances this season, striking out 32 while walking 21 batters.
“He did a good job in all the other roles besides closer (this year). There is something there that can still help people. Maybe a change of scenery will help,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.
