Carlos Marmol's agent, Paul Kinzer, told CBS Sports' Jon Heyman via text message that he's not sure if his client will pitch again this season.
Marmol, who signed a minor league deal with the Reds in late May, was placed on the restricted list at Triple-A Louisville last week after leaving the team without permission. "A lot has happened in the past year and he decided to go to the Dominican," wrote Kinzer. "We aren't sure when or if he will return this year." Kinzer didn't specify why Marmol left the team, but he indicated that there were "personal" reasons behind it and that he wants to "take a mental break." Jun 17 - 3:43 PM

Carlos Marmol's agent Paul Kinzer said Wednesday that his client has "decided to take a break."

Marmol was placed on the restricted list at Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday after leaving the team without permission. "He decided to take a break and just focus on getting back on track," Kinzer told Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish. "He's still healthy and should still be in his prime. His velocity was still in the mid-90s. I don't believe the Reds want to release him. He wants to get his confidence back and take a break mentally."

Carlos Marmol has been placed on the restricted list at Triple-A Louisville after leaving the club without permission.

It's not clear why Marmol left or how long he plans to be gone, but obviously it's not ideal as he tries to make it back to the majors. The reliever was signed to a minor league deal two weeks ago after being released by the Marlins. Marmol has allowed three runs while walking six over 3 2/3 frames at Louisville.
Jun 11 - 3:30 PM

Reds signed RHP Carlos Marmol to a minor league contract.

Marmol was released by the Marlins last week after giving up 12 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings. We're not expecting much, but he could surface in Cincinnati's bullpen at some point.
May 27 - 12:45 PM

Marlins released RHP Carlos Marmol.

Marmol was designated for assignment by the Fish eight days ago and apparently drew no interest from other teams on the waiver wire. He surrendered 12 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings (15 relief appearances) for Miami. The Marlins will eat whatever remains from the one-year, $1.25 million free agent contract he signed in mid-February.
May 19 - 1:36 PM

Marlins designated RHP Carlos Marmol for assignment.

Marmol got off to a nice start but has really struggled this month, allowing eight runs over 3 1/3 innings. Since Dan Jennings has to spend a few more days in the minors before being recalled, Sam Dyson could be the choice to replace Marmol in the bullpen for now. He has a 2.76 ERA in 16 1/3 innings in relief in Triple-A.
May 11 - 12:41 AM

Carlos Marmol gave up four runs in an inning and took his third loss in relief Saturday against the Padres.

This might bring an end to the Marmol era in Miami. He's given up 12 runs and three homers in 13 1/3 innings, sprinkling in 10 walks along the way. The Marlins can't yet recall Dan Jennings to replace him, but they can find someone else to step in until Jennings' 10 days in the minors are up.
May 11 - 12:29 AM

Carlos Marmol (hamstring) threw without discomfort Friday.

Marmol left Wednesday's game against the Braves with a right hamstring strain, but he's apparently made a quick recovery. He said he'll be available to pitch Friday, but the Marlins are expected to give him a couple more days especially with the cool weather in New York.
Apr 25 - 5:01 PM

Carlos Marmol left Wednesday's game against the Braves with a right hamstring strain.

Marmol tweaked the hammy while he was throwing ball four to Jason Heyward with two outs in the seventh inning. He was able to walk off on his own but did so gingerly. The Marlins are calling him day-to-day for now.
Apr 23 - 2:26 PM

Marlins signed RHP Carlos Marmol to a one-year, $1.25 million contract.

The one-year pact was agreed to last week and finalized Tuesday after Marmol passed his pre-signing physical. The 31-year-old posted an ugly 4.41 ERA and 59/40 K/BB ratio in 49 innings last season between the Dodgers and Cubs. He'll likely pitch in middle relief for Miami.
Feb 11 - 4:21 PM

Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that the Marlins and reliever Carlos Marmol have agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million contract, pending a physical.

Marmol, 31, is coming off a 4.41 ERA and 59/40 K/BB ratio over 49 innings last season between the Cubs and Dodgers. He's a decent enough gamble at this price, but his control remains a major issue.
Feb 6 - 4:48 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Carlos Marmol is talking to three teams and could have a deal soon.

Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors reported exactly one month ago that Marmol was in talks with three teams, but he's still looking for the right fit. The Brewers and Red Sox were mentioned as possibilities earlier this winter. The erratic right-hander posted a 4.41 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 59 strikeouts over 49 innings last season between the Cubs and Dodgers.
Feb 3 - 4:31 PM

Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com reports that Carlos Marmol has discussed a major league deal with three different clubs.

Dierkes says teams are watching Marmol in the Dominican Winter League and there's a "good chance" the reliever finds a new club this month. The enigmatic righty struck out 59 over 49 frames for the Cubs and Dodgers this past season but also posted a 4.41 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.
Jan 3 - 3:34 PM

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Brewers and Red Sox are among the teams interested in free agent reliever Carlos Marmol.

Marmol posted a 2.53 ERA over 21 appearances after joining the Dodgers around mid-season this year and struck out 27 batters over 21 1/3 innings. That's not say that he's fixed, as his control was just as bad as ever, but it's no surprise that teams still see some upside here.

Dodgers activated RHP Carlos Marmol.

Marmol, acquired from the Cubs on July 2 in exchange for Matt Guerrier, posted a 2.53 ERA and 27/19 K/BB ratio in 21 appearances for the Dodgers. He coughed up just one run over his final 19 appearances of the regular season. Marmol wasn't used in Game 1's 13-inning loss to the Cardinals, but five of his bullpen mates were, which means that the right-hander should be prepared to go during Saturday afternoon's Game 2 tilt.
