Cubs deal Darwin Barney to Dodgers
Chicago unloads former Gold Glove infielder for player to be named
The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired second baseman Darwin Barney in a trade with the Chicago Cubs.
Barney won a Gold Glove in 2012 after tying the major-league single-season record with 141 consecutive errorless games.
But he was designated for assignment last Tuesday after hitting .230 in 72 games with 16 runs batted in this season.
The last-place Cubs sent Barney and cash to National League West-leading Los Angeles for a player to be named.
The trade was announced on Monday.
Barney, who turns 29 in November, is a .244 hitter overall with 18 home runs and 146 RBIs in 542 MLB games.
