Do you have a source on that or just speculation?
isn't he starting games for the Cubs this upcoming spring training? I mean he was a starting pitcher in the minors. Going into the season he'll be in the bullpen but a couple of years from now the Cubs won't resort to using him as a middle reliever no way.
Right now Marshall is the leading candidate for the 5th spot in the rotation.
And I assume that Harden will be limited to 5-6 innings, to keep him healthy, so that really compicates, how the Cubs pen will look like.
Don't know what Lou has in mind, but I would use Gregg and Marmol in the 8-9, dictated by what part of the order comin up to bat.
It would not be a comitee, but could mean about a 70-30 spit toward Marmol to close.
(I'll explane the reasoning behind that if necessary)
yes but he is destined for the rotation
