CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs Monday traded infielder Darwin Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later.

Barney, 28, was designated for assignment on July 22 after batting .230 (47-for-204) with 10 doubles, two triples, two home runs and 16 RBI in 72 games for the Cubs this season.  Since making his big league debut with the Cubs in 2010, Barney batted .244 (455-for-1,861) with 88 doubles, 18 home runs and 146 RBI in 542 games.

He won the 2012 National League Gold Glove at second base after tying a major league single-season record with 141-consecutive errorless games at second base.
