Latest Update Cubs designate Darwin Barney for assignment   Tue Jul, 22, 03:20 PM

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

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   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.

    Darwin Barney hits rare home run
  • The expression, "even a blind squirrel finds a nut," should come to mind whenever you hear that Barney hit a home run. The fact that he's already up to two by May 16 should actually blow your mind. But while you can't expect any real power out of the the Cubs' second baseman the fact that he's raised his average to even just .183 is modestly promising considering his painfully slow start. If he can continue this recent 7-for-19 (.368) surge he is on, he just might raise that number above the Mendoza Line and not be the laughing stock at the position anymore. Analyst: Howard Bender
