Angels | Acquire Carlos Marmol

The Chicago Cubs traded CL Carlos Marmol to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for SP Dan Haren Friday, Nov. 2, a source confirmed. Marmol is entering the final year of a deal that pays him $9.8 million in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Marmol posted 20 saves and a 3.42 ERA in 61 appearances for the Cubs last season, rebounding after a tough start. There are closing options in Anaheim, but Marmol is likely to get first crack. His electric stuff, albeit wild at times, could really keep American League hitters off balance as he changes leagues to face batters less familiar with his stuff.
