The Los Angeles Dodgeres have recalled infielder Darwin Barney from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Barney, 28, had been seeing time at shortstop while with Albuquerque even though he had been used as a second baseman during his time with the Chicago Cubs.
While Barney is a superb defender he will not provide much at the plate hitting just .230/.265/.328 with two home runs and...
The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Darwin Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. OUCH BABE! Remember when he was relevant? When he was possibly considered “a piece” in “the rebuild?” At least defensively, he was thought to be something, Now this is his fate.
The one AAA leader hits once gave Cubs fans such high...

Survival of the fittest and all, and Darwin Barney has just been naturally selected off of the Cubs 40-man roster. So Emilio Bonificaio is activated and Barney gets DFA'd, with Alcantara and Bonifacio both in the starting lineup tonight. Barney will end his Cubs career with over 2000 PA's (holy ****..really?) and a place in the Hall of Cubs Punch Lines. I'm sure a stand...
For the last four seasons the Chicago Cubs have had the luxury of sending out one of the best defensive second baseman every day. A man that has a career fielding percentage of .989.
The 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove award winner in a year in which he posted a defensive WAR of 3.7 and fielding percentage of .997. Yet this man should be traded if the Cubs are to improve for the future...

It really hasn’t been a banner month for Chicago Cub second baseman Darwin Barney. Barney continues to struggle at the plate, barely hitting his weight by the end of April and ranking last on the team in a couple of offensive categories.
Barney currently ranks last on the Cubs in average with hitters that have had at least 25 at-bats, putting up a merely .122 on his stat sheet...
With Robinson Cano gone to Seattle, the New York Yankees need a second baseman. They recently signed Kelly Johnson, and they heavily pursued Omar Infante, who recently signed with Kansas City. They also turned down a chance at Brandon Phillips because they did not want to part with Brett Gardner or give Phillips a raise. With few other options available, the Chicago Cubs&...
