Amid a series of franchise-altering trades, the Cubs sent outfielder Jake Marisnick to the San Diego Padres shortly before Friday's 3 p.m. trade deadline.
In exchange for Marisnick, the Cubs acquired right-handed pitcher Anderson Espinoza. The 23-year-old was San Diego's No. 9 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline.
Marisnick joined the Cubs on a one-year deal last winter. He's a plus defender in the outfield capable of playing all three positions. He's also a threat on the bases.
Marisnick hit .227/.294/.438 in 65 games this season, missing time earlier this season with a hamstring strain.
Espinoza has a 5.09 ERA in 12 starts in advanced-A this season. He holds a 3.59 ERA in 52 career minor-league appearances (51 starts).
He missed the entire 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery for the second time.
