Latest Update Darwin Barney doubles in a run Mon Aug, 18, 03:21 AM
Is a good contact hitter with doubles power who doesn't strike out much. Can run a little, too. In the field, he's sure-handed and very good overall.
Flaws: : Doesn't have much home-run power, and he doesn't take enough walks to maximize his on-base potential. Overall, he lacks offensive tools.
Barney logged his first two-hit game since joining the Dodgers as he received a rare start shortstop on Sunday. He is now sitting on a .235 average with two home runs and 18 RBI on the season which is not going to earn him either a starting gig or fantasy consideration moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With Hanley Ramirez hitting the disabled list Sunday, the Dodgers will bring Barney up to serve as depth in the infield. How much playing time he actually sees is not yet known, but the bulk of the work should fall on Miguel Rojas.Analyst: Howard Bender
With Emilio Bonifacio being activated from the disabled list and Barney banging a mean .230 with two home runs, it's time to make the swap. With Arismendy Alcantara manning second base anyway, there's no reason for Barney to be hanging around.Analyst: Howard Bender
Barney went on paternity leave Thursday, so he was expected to miss Friday, for sure, and possibly the weekend as well. Arismendy Alcantara is playing second base again.Analyst: Howard Bender
