It's not the biggest trade the Cubs made on Tuesday, but it's still notable: The maligned Carlos Marmol has been dealt to the Dodgers along with international signing-bonus slot No. 4 in exchange for fellow reliever Matt Guerrier. The Cubs made the announcement on Tuesday.

According to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat, the Cubs will pay about $500,000 of the $5 million left on Marmol's contract. This season, Marmol is lugging around an ERA of 5.86, but he owns a strong 125 ERA+ for his career. A lack of control will always be the concern with him. The Cubs designated Marmol, age 30, for assignment last week.

As for Guerrier, 34, he has a 3.54 ERA in 513 major-league appearances, all but three of which have come in relief. This season, he pitched to a 4.80 ERA before being DFA'd by the Dodgers.
