The Miami Marlins are close to acquiring pitcher Carlos Zambrano from the Chicago Cubs, according to a report.
The Miami Marlins are in the market to pick up a starting pitcher via a trade, and they may have just found their answer. According to a report by Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins are on the verge of trading for Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano.
Zambrano has spend his entire career with the Chicago Cubs, making his debut in the 2001 season. The 30-year old pitcher has dealt with anger issues in the past, including being relegated to a role in the bullpen some in the 2010 season. For his career, he has accumulated a 125-81 win-loss record with the Cubs and a career 3.60 ERA. Zambrano also has 23 home runs in his career as a hitter, providing at least somewhat of a bat as a National League pitcher.
