Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Indians are in the process of signing free agent right-hander Carlos Marmol to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old posted a troublesome 8.10 ERA over 15 appearances with the Marlins in 2014 before being released. He's always had a live arm, but the likelihood of him positively contributing to the Tribe's bullpen this season is low.
May 7 - 9:29 PM

Robert Murray of reports that Carlos Marmol has offers from teams in Asia but prefers to sign with a contending major league club.

Marmol probably should be able to land a minor league offer somewhere, but he might not be able to be picky about which team it comes from. The 32-year-old held an 8.10 ERA over 15 appearances with the Marlins last season before being released and then quit three appearances into a stint at Triple-A with the Reds.
Feb 24 - 8:58 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Carlos Marmol is "serious" about a comeback attempt.

He's pitched both in the Dominican and Venezuelan Winter Leagues this offseason. Marmol, 32, posted an 8.10 ERA over 15 appearances with the Marlins last season before being released. He then made three appearances for the Reds' Triple-A affiliate before leaving the team without permission. While he's a poor bet to ever be an impact bullpen arm again, someone will be willing to give Marmol a shot on a minor league deal.

Reds released RHP Carlos Marmol.

It was basically a paperwork move. Marmol signed a minor league contract with the Reds in May but he left Triple-A Louisville a few weeks later without permission, returning home to the Dominican Republic for the rest of the summer. It's not clear if the 32-year-old right-hander plans to pitch in 2015.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Apr 23, 2014 02:26:00 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.
