Marlins | Trust Carlos Marmol in big spots
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 13:56:57 -0700

Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond said he still trusts RP Carlos Marmol, the team's primary eighth-inning setup man, in big late-game situations despite the fact that Marmol blew the lead against the Washington Nationals by allowing a grand slam. "It's easy to second guess now. I still felt good about having Marmol out there. This guy has closed out a lot of games and pitched in a lot of big situations over the course of his career. That's why we signed him, to come in and take over for the guys we lost. We're going to need this guy to pitch in some big situations and some big games," Redmond said. RPs A.J. Ramos, Mike Dunn and Arquimedes Caminero could be used in the eighth inning if Marmol continues to struggle.
