Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs long-range plan for Carlos Marmol includes returning him to the closer's role.

Marmol was replaced by Kyuji Fujikawa as closer on Saturday after blowing a save, but the Cubs haven't ruled out him eventually returning to the job. "We want him to be our closer," pitching coach Chris Bosio said. "He understands the position he's in right now. We are going to put him where he can succeed."
