Just after he completes his work with the Tigers in the Caribbean Series, Carlos Marmol will set his compass to south Florida.
The Miami Marlins agreed for one season and $1.25 million.
The deal is pending a physical examination, which is expected to travel on Friday from Isla Margarita, Venezuela to the Sunshine state.
The 31-year-old right-hander pitcher is 23-32 with 117 saves in a career spanning eight seasons in MLB with the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Marmol said that the Marlins did not grant him the closer role, a role Steve Cishek has in Miami, who recorded 34 saves in 36 chances, in the 2013 season.
However, the Dominican could work in the eighth inning and prepare the field for Cishek for closing where AJ Ramos and Carter Capps and lefty Mike Dunn can work also if the game is not right.
Last campaign for Marmol alternated with the Cubs and Dodgers and finished with a 2-4, with 4.41 ERA with two saves.
His main problem in recent years has been his control.
"I feel good, I thank God for always put me in a good way,'' said Marble on its agreement with Miami.
"There were many options, but this team gave me a chance I deserve,'' Marmol said.
