Dan Haren for Carlos Marmol trade dead; Angels decline Haren's option

Jason Miller

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rothenthal, the decision rested with Marmol.

UPDATE: Carrie Muskat of Cubs.com is reporting this trade is dead.

ORIGINAL: Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times tweeted the Chicago Cubs have traded Carlos Marmol to the Los Angeles Angels for Dan Haren.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com says, however, the deal isn't sealed quite yet.

Rosenthal added that Marmol would have to waive his no-trade clause in order for the deal to be finalized.

The Angels have been waiting to make a decision on Haren's $15.5 million option for 2013, shopping him on the trade market in the process. The 32-year-old posted a 4.33 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 30 starts for the Halos last season.

Marmol is set to make $9.8 million next season. The 30-year-old has always had dominant stuff, but struggles with his control. He had an 11.7 K/9, but also averaged 7.3 BB/9 over 55 1/3 innings with the Cubs last season while picking up 20 saves.

The Angels had the third-worst bullpen ERA in the American League last season (3.97).
