Closer Marmol, Cubs close to multi-year deal
 
Quote:

Carlos Marmol underwent his physical Saturday at Fitch Park, and the Cubs were expected to announce a long-term deal with their closer this week.

Marmol, 28, who is the team's only arbitration-eligible player still unsigned, wouldn't comment on Saturday.

Asked if a deal was done, Marmol said: "Not yet."The two sides have exchanged arbitration figures, with the Cubs submitting an offer of $4.1 million, while Marmol is seeking $5.65 million. However, all signs indicate the two sides could settle on a multi-year contract. If Marmol and the Cubs agreed to a three-year deal, he would be giving up his first year of free agency. He has one more arbitration year, then would be eligible for free agency in 2013.

Marmol converted 38 of 43 save opportunities last season, and averaged a Major League-record 15.99 strikeouts per nine innings.

Cubs pitchers and catchers report on Sunday to Fitch Park, although many have already been working out in camp, including Matt Garza, Carlos Zambrano and John Grabow. The first workout will be Monday.
