Breaking New: Former Chicago Cubs' second baseman Darwin Barney, who was designated for assignment earlier in the week, has been acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cubs will receive a player to be named later as part of the deal.

Barney hit .230 in 217 plate appearances for the Cubs this spring and was just beginning to shake off his ice-cold start but due to the emergence of Arismendy Alcantara and the return of Emilio Bonifacio from the disabled list, there was simply no room for Barney on the roster.

It may feel like the Cubs are dumping Barney for nothing but you never know, sometimes players to be named later can turn into fine ball players (See's top 'players to be named later').
