Chicago • The Chicago Cubs have designated former All-Star Carlos Marmol for assignment, parting ways with the struggling reliever.

The Cubs announced the move Tuesday. They have 10 days to trade or release him or send him outright to the minors if he clears waivers.

He was 2-4 with two saves and a 5.86 ERA in 31 appearances this season, striking out 32 while walking 21 batters.

An All-Star as a setup man in 2008, Marmol became the team's closer in late 2009 and compiled 117 saves, third on the team's all-time list. He was 23-32 with a 3.50 ERA in 483 appearances over eight seasons with Chicago, and he was booed at Wrigley Field during his recent struggles.

The Cubs also selected the contract of outfielder Brian Bogusevic from Triple-A Iowa.
