Report: Cubs Close to Trading Carlos Marmol to the Dodgers

According to a report from Bruce Levine, the Cubs are close on a deal that would send Carlos Marmol to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Levine’s report has been confirmed by Jon Heyman and Peter Gammons since it hit the wire.

Carlos Marmol has drawn interest from at least three teams since the Cubs designated Marmol for assignment last Tuesday.

According to Bruce Levine, it is “unknown which player or players the Dodgers would send to Chicago.”

Carlos Marmol is owed around $5.4 million of his $9.8 million contract for this season. According to Levine’s source, the Dodgers would absorb some of the money still owed to Marmol.

The Cubs have not commented if a deal is in the works for Marmol or not according to Carrie Muskat.
