The Miami Marlins have released relief pitcher Carols Marmol.
It comes as little surprise that Marmol generated no interest while on waivers. Now the Marlins are left to pay the remainder of the $1.25 million on his contract.

Marmol appeared in 15 games this season producing a 8.10 ERA and a 1.95 WHIP. In his last 3 1/3 innings of work he allowed eight runs, four of which came in his last outing.
Someone could roll the dice with him on a minor league deal but with a declining strike out rate and poor control he’s a longshot to ever be used in high leverage situations again.
