Carlos Marmol: To Remain Closer Staff

Update: Cubs manager Dale Sveum said after Monday's game that Marmol will remain the closer, Carrie Muskat of reports. "He's still the closer," Sveum said. "I'm not making any changes or anything like that, he just didn't have it today."

Recommendation: Marmol got yanked from a save situation Monday after hitting a batter and giving up a hit and a walk. Sveum's endorsement is nice for fantasy owners, but it's not a good start to the year for Marmol. Kyuji Fujikawa is there and may see more opportunities to close if Marmol's struggles continue.
