The Chicago Cubs continue to trade everyone off their roster, this time moving centre fielder Jake Marisnick to the San Diego Padres for right-handed pitcher Anderson Espinoza.

Marisnick, 30, will likely serve in a bench role for the World Series-contending Padres. He has hit .227/.294/.438 with five home runs and 22 RBIs this season.

The move comes at the end of a busy week for the Cubs, who have moved Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Ryan Tepera, Craig Kimbrel and Javier Baez in separate trades.
