The 32-year old heads to Miami on a one-year, major league deal.

The Miami Marlins have reached agreement on a one-year, $1.25 million contract with reliever Carlos Marmol, as Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com first reported. Marmol will take his physical on Friday, and the deal will become official once he passes.

Marmol, 32, also drew interest from the Brewers and Red Sox this offseason, but heads to Miami as the team's likely setup man in front of closer Steve Cishek. He closed for the Cubs for much of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons, but struggled early last season and was shifted to a middle relief role. After posting a 2-4 record and 5.86 ERA in 26 games with the Cubs in the first half of the season, he was shipped to the Dodgers in a July trade, and was successful in the season's second half. In 21 games with Los Angeles, Marmol posted a 2.53 ERA in 21.1 innings of work.

In eight major league seasons with the Cubs (2006-2013) and Dodgers (2013), Marmol has posted a lifetime 23-32 record and 3.46 ERA in 563.2 innings. He has posted 117 saves since 2007, with his best season coming in 2010, when he notched 38 saves and a 2.55 ERA in 77 appearances.
