As expected, the Cubs have managed to sign closer Carlos Marmol to a
one-year deal, avoiding the ugliness of arbitration that lies ahead

According to Carrie Muskat, the two sides agreed to a $2.125 million
salary, which is approximately the midpoint of what the Cubs had
offered and what Marmol had requested.
