The former Cubs closer signed with Miami in February and has thrown 13 1/3 innings for the Marlins this season with a 8.10 ERA, 9.5 K/9 and 6.8 BB/9.
Marmol has always posted very high walk numbers, but free passes have become especially problematic for him with his declining strikeout ratE (16.0 K/9 in 2010 to 10.8 in 2013).
He’s still just 31, though, and has good velocity, so teams will undoubtedly continue to be curious about him.Marlins Designate Carlos Marmol For Assignment by Matt Stein
