News: Barney was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. Impact: Barney's demotion likely cements Miguel Rojas into a utility role for the time being, and leaves Justin Turner as the top backup option at second base behind Dee Gordon. The Dodgers completed the trade for Barney by sending 20-year-old right-hander Jonathan Martinez to the Cubs on Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired Barney in a trade with the Chicago Cubs. Impact: 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 RBIs in 72 games this season. (STATS, 7:14pm)

News: Barney was dealt to the Dodgers on Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: It isn't immediately clear if Barney will join the big club, but he'll nonetheless be blocked at second base by speed demon Dee Gordon. Luckily, Barney has 19 games of major league experience at shortstop, and an additional six at the hot corner, meaning he'd provide versatility to an infield that is set in stone. Before he was designated for assignment by the Cubs last week, he slashed an underwhelming .230/.265/.328 in 204 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Barney has been designated for assignment, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports. Impact: Emilio Bonifacio has been activated from the 15-day DL to take Barney's place on the roster. After winning a Gold Glove in 2012, Barney may draw some interest as a utility infielder from other clubs, so the Cubs may wind up moving him in a minor trade in the coming days. Barney is hitting .230/.265/.329 with two homers, 16 RBI and 18 runs scored.(RotoWire, )
Tue. July 22, 2014
News: The Chicago Cubs took another step toward the future, designating Barney for assignment. Impact: The 28-year-old Barney won a Gold Glove in the 2012, when his 141 consecutive games without an error tied a major league record. But he regressed noticeably at the plate and, with the recent promotion of Arismendy Alcantara and other infield prospects on the way, he no longer fit the master plan.(STATS, 7:51pm)
Sun. July 20, 2014
News: Barney had two hits Saturday. Impact: Barney is a .230 hitter with little future in the big leagues.(STATS, 2:22pm)
Fri. July 11, 2014
News: The Chicago Cubs activated Barney from the paternity list and recalled left-handed reliever Zac Rosscup from Triple-A Iowa. Impact: Barney is hitting .224 with two home runs and 16 RBIs for the Cubs this season. (STATS, 6:10pm)
