Dodgers acquire Barney in trade with Cubs

The Dodgers have acquired Darwin Barney from the Cubs.


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 with 16 RBI in 72 games 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 career hitter with 18 homers and 146 RBI in 542 games.
