Marlins, Carlos Marmol agree to terms

The Marlins….is that still a thing?

The Marlins and veteran reliever Carlos Marmol have come to terms on a contract for 2014, reports’s Jon Heyman. According to Heyman’s sources, the deal is a major-league contract.

Marmol, 31, is coming off a 2013 season in which he pitched to a 4.41 ERA, 87 ERA+ and 1.48 K/BB ratio in 49 innings for the Cubs and Dodgers. For his career, Marmol owns a 125 ERA+ across parts of eight major-league seasons. Marmol is still capable of effectiveness in spurts, but control has always been a concern. As well, his stuff has diminished in recent seasons, and he hasn’t had a standout year since 2010.

So I guess Miami is where headcase Cubs pitchers with formerly good stuff are put out to pasture?

Farnsworth never pitched for the Marlins.
