The Chicago Cubs traded Carlos Marmol to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Matt Guerrier, the team announced.

The Dodgers also acquired international signing bonus slot number four from the Cubs.

Guerrier, who is expected to join the Cubs later this week, has gone 25-33 with 112 holds, six saves and 3.54 ERA in 513 major league appearances.

Marmol was designated for assignment on June 25, giving the Cubs a 10-day period to trade him or give him his unconditional release. He had a limited no-trade clause with six teams he could block, including the Dodgers.

Marmol is owed more than $5 million on his $9.8 million for this season, and another source said the Dodgers will absorb some of the money owed. He's ending a three-year, $21 million contract with the Cubs, who are the only team he's played for in the majors.

Marmol can become a free agent after this season.

Not sure if this really helps our bullpen all that much.

Er, unless the Dodgers think they can magically turn him back to the closer-level pitcher for the Cubs from 2007 to 2010, this is another head-scratching deal.... I mean 18 earned runs in 26 innings, lol.

^^Maybe it's to make League look better? I really hope they have better relief pitchers in mind though Dave.

Saw somewhere that if Marmol doesn't play for the Dodgers they can designate him and get more money from the Cubbies.

Sources: Marmol placed on waivers

By Jayson Stark

Immediately after acquiring him from the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers placed reliever Carlos Marmol on outright waivers with the intention of sending him to the minor leagues, sources told ESPN.com.

Dodgers officials declined comment on Marmol's status. But according to major league sources outside the Dodgers organization who are familiar with the situation, the Dodgers want to send Marmol to the minors so he can work on fixing his delivery issues in a setting other than a big league pennant race.

One source said Marmol "agreed to work with them" and go to the minors as a condition of the trade that sent him to L.A. after eight often turbulent seasons with the Cubs. Because he has more than six years of major league service time, Marmol would have the right to decline an outright assignment to the minors. However, the sources indicated he has agreed to waive that right if he clears waivers this week.

Marmol has approximately $4.8 million in salary remaining between now and the rest of the season, and he would receive his full salary, even if he returns to the minor leagues. Sources said the Cubs have agreed to pay nearly $2 million of that amount. The Cubs also took on all of the $2.375 million still owed to reliever Matt Guerrier, who was traded for Marmol.

If the Dodgers decide Marmol can't get back to his form of 2010 and 2011, when he saved 72 games and struck out 237 hitters in 151 2/3 innings, and they then release him and another club signs him, the Cubs have agreed to pay the Dodgers an additional portion of Marmol's salary, sources said.
