Marmol did meet with his agent, Paul Kinzer, on Wednesday, but denied they were talking about finding a way to get the pitcher out of Chicago. Marmol lost his job as the Cubs closer after the first week of the season.
"I'm not going nowhere," Marmol said. "I'm very happy here. I can't wait until they do something so I can stay here. I always talk about how I love Chicago, I love being here, I love my teammates, I love everybody here."
It would be understandable if Marmol was upset considering his role has changed.
"I'm ready in the first inning," Marmol said. "I always put that in my mind. It's not easy [to not be the closer], but I can handle it. I'll pitch whenever."
Is he bothered by the false report?
"That didn't come out of my mouth," Marmol said. "I feel good here. I'm here, and I'm not going nowhere."
