HOUSTON – Carlos Marmol was impressive enough during a simulated game at Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday that the Cubs are thinking about moving up his return to game action by a day.

Acting manager Jamie Quirk said that Marmol could pitch for Iowa on Friday instead of Saturday, but didn’t know of a timetable when the right-hander might return to the major leagues.

Marmol has been out since May 12 with a right hamstring strain. He had already been pulled from his closer role before the injury.
