Analysis: 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. Marmol is still with the Cubs, and his status is still unclear. Marmol is entering the final year of a three-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.
