Marmol happy to still be with Cubs

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Chicago Cubs closer Carlos Marmol thought he was headed to the Los Angeles Angels.

That was three months ago, when the Cubs asked Marmol to waive his limited no-trade clause because they were close to finalizing a deal to acquire Dan Haren from the Angels.

"They told me I was traded," he said. "The next day I was told, 'No, you're not going there.'"

Marmol is still with the Cubs, and his status is still unclear.

Marmol is entering the final year of a 3-year, $9.8 million. The 2008 All-Star is certain to be trade bait for the rebuilding organization near the July 31 trade deadline if the Cubs are out of contention.

"He's our closer," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

But for how long?
