Cubs | GM defends Carlos Marmol
Tue, 07 May 2013 07:46:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer was asked why RP Carlos Marmol continues to receive chances to pitch in high-leverage situations. "I think he has a number of more appearances than any other pitcher in baseball over the last four or five years," Hoyer said. "This team has expected a lot out of him for a number of years and ridden him really hard over the last few years. Some of that has probably taken its toll. His fastball and slider aren't what they used to be, but in part, that's because he's been really durable and ridden hard by a number of managers here."
