Report: Reds sign Marmol to minor-league deal
MAY 27, 2014 3:47p ET
CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports the Reds have signed the former closer, whose career fell down a cliff in recent years, to a minor-league contract.
Marmol was released by the Marlins after a disastrous start to the 2014 season, in which he compiled a 8.10 ERA and 1.95 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings pitched.
While proving a threat to strikeout batters in his best years in Chicago, control has always been a problem for Marmol. For his career, Marmol has walked more batters than he's allowed hits.
In eight seasons with the Cubs, Marmol earned 117 saves.
