Carlos Marmol left the Reds’ Triple-A team without permission

Carlos Marmol, who’s pitching at Triple-A for the Reds affiliate, has been placed on the restricted list because he “left the club without permission.”

Marmol signed a minor-league contract with the Reds after being released by the Marlins, but was struggling with a 7.36 ERA and six walks in 3.2 innings for Louisville.

Considering the Reds’ minimal investment and Marmol’s recent ineptitude on the mound it seems odd that they wouldn’t just release him. He’s still just 31 years old, but Marmol’s career has gone off the rails in a hurry.
