Cubs | Carlos Marmol blows another save

Chicago Cubs RP Carlos Marmol blew his first save chance Tuesday, April 23, since he was demoted earlier in the season. He didn't allow an earned run, but he walked two and allowed a hit, which allowed an inherited runner to score.

Fantasy Tip: Really? One has to wonder if the team will put him in another save situation again. Marmol had thrown seven straight scoreless frames, and still, technically, hasn't allowed an earned run since April 6. The Cubbies really have no legitimate option to close down games. They don't have a lot at Triple-A Iowa, either. Journeyman 29-year-old Yoanner Negrin has pitched well for Iowa. He has a 2.19 ERA and 15 strikeouts to three walks in 12 1/3 innings. Could they give him a shot? Maybe. Keep him on your radar.
