Cubs trade Carlos Marmol to Dodgers
The embattled Carlos Marmol is reportedly headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for Matt Guerrier.
It's not the biggest trade the Cubs made on Tuesday, but it's still notable: The maligned Carlos Marmol has been dealt to the Dodgers along with international signing-bonus slot No. 4 in exchange for fellow reliever Matt Guerrier. The Cubs made the announcement on Tuesday.
According to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat, the Cubs will pay about $500,000 of the $5 million left on Marmol's contract. This season, Marmol is lugging around an ERA of 5.86, but he owns a strong 125 ERA+ for his career. A lack of control will always be the concern with him. The Cubs designated Marmol, age 30, for assignment last week.
As for Guerrier, 34, he has a 3.54 ERA in 513 major-league appearances, all but three of which have come in relief. This season, he pitched to a 4.80 ERA before being DFA'd by the Dodgers.
