News: Marmol signed a minor league contract with the Indians on Friday.
Impact: Marmol played in 15 games for the Marlins last season but spent the majority of his time at Triple-A Louisville. He'll likely do the same for the Indians and start with Triple-A Columbus, although a promotion in the near future seems unlikely.

News: The Cleveland Indians have signed Marmol to a minor league contract.
Impact: The 32-year-old righty reported Friday to the Indians' player development complex in Goodyear, Arizona. Marmol was 0-3 with an 8.10 ERA in 15 games for Miami last season. He was signed by Cincinnati in May and released in November.
Rotowire: May 7 / 7:10p ET
News: Marmol is in contract talks with the Indians regarding a minor league deal, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.
Impact: Marmol signed a minor league deal with Cincinnati last season, but hit the restricted list after leaving Triple-A Louisville without the club's permission. The deal with Cleveland's organization is not set in stone, but if he does agree to terms, there's no guarantee that he'd crack the major league roster.
