Dodgers Designate Carlos Marmol For Assignment
By Steve Adams [July 3 at 10:35am CST]
The Dodgers have designated Carlos Marmol for assignment, according to Peter Gammons of the MLB Network (on Twitter). Gammons reports that the Dodgers were only interested in the international bonus slot they acquired in the deal, not in retaining Marmol as a member of their bullpen.
The Dodgers made what appeared to be a puzzling trade yesterday, dealing the recently DFA'ed Matt Guerrier to the Cubs in exchange for Marmol and an international bonus slot worth an additional $209,700. The Dodgers spent about $500K of actual money to acquire just under $210K of pool money, which makes sense, as international spending dollars carry more value than standard dollars because of bonus pool limitations.
In the end Marmol was property of the Dodgers for less than 24 hours. The 30-year-old, who posted a 5.86 ERA with 10.4 K/9, 6.8 BB/9 and 2.0 HR/9 in 27 2/3 innings this season, drew interest from multiple teams, so perhaps yet another club will inquire on his services.
Gurnick said he hasnt been dfa'd but we'll see
PWEEEG The Gawwd
Carlos Marmol = Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez
Sounds good to me
I don't know why but I found this hilarious.
Something big is coming our way.
Troll move if true
This isn't true
I think the Dodgers will try to work with Marmol in the Minors for a month and see if he can regain some of his control. If he shows he is serviceable, he will be called upon in an open NL West down the stretch. If not, he doesn't see the field. No big loss. I hope we make a move for Utley if it doesn't cost any great prospects. The trade deadline will be interesting!

Part of the deal was that Marmol agreed to go to the Minor leagues and sort out his ***** before being called up to the dodgers.. He still however has to go through waivers and can be claimed by another team. So essentially being DFA was true however the intention is to keep him and fix him. Chances he gets through waivers again are good.
