2/4/10 Marmol signs

One down, one to go. The Cubs signed Carlos Marmol to a one-year, $2.125 million contract Thursday, avoiding arbitration with their closer. Marmol, 27, who made $575,000 last year, was asking for $2.5 million while the Cubs offered $1.75 million.

Only shortstop Ryan Theriot remains unsigned of the team’s arbitration eligible players. Theriot, 30, who made $500,000 last season, his third as the starting shortstop, is seeking $3.4 million while the Cubs offered $2.6 million.
