Relief pitcher Carlos Marmol, who finished up 2013 with the Dodgers, has agreed to terms with the Marlins on a one-year deal worth $1.25 million, per Enrique Rojas of ESPN. The contract is pending a physical.

Marmol, 31, can also earn performance bonuses in the deal, per Rojas.

The Dodgers acquired Marmol from the Cubs on July 2 along with $2.5 million in cash and an international bonus slot worth $209,700, for relief pitcher Matt Guerrier in a swap of pitchers designated for assignment.

Marmol put up a 2.53 ERA in 21 games for the Dodgers, including scoreless outings in 17 of his final 18 appearances. He struck out 27 batters in 21⅓ innings in Los Angeles, but also walked 19.

Marmol was added to the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS and pitched in mop-up duty in Games 4 and 6 against the Cardinals, throwing 3⅔ scoreless innings with five strikeouts and just two baserunners allowed.

On the season Marmol was 2-4 with a 5.52 ERA and two saves in 52 games between the Cubs and Dodgers, with 59 strikeouts and 40 walks in 49 innings. Marmol made $9.8 million in 2013.

With Marmol finding a home in Florida, there is only one Dodgers free agent remaining: Chris Capuano. The left-handed pitcher reportedly sought a two-year deal earlier in the winter, per Buster Olney of ESPN, but is now willing to sign somewhere on a one-year pact.
