Another minute and another trade.

The Chicago Cubs have traded outfielder Jake Marisnick to the San Diego Padres for prospect Anderson Espinoza on Friday according to multiple reports including ESPN's Jeff Passan.

The deal is pending a physical.

Good move by the Padres to get the veteran outfielder than can hit and play solid defense in the outfield.

For the season, Marisnick hit .227 in 65 games this season.

This was the fourth trade for the Cubs on Friday, along with Javy Baez, Kris Bryant, and Craig Kimbrel.

Best of luck to Marisnick in San Diego!
