Share Tweet Email

(AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have a little more infield depth following their deal with the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs have shipped second baseman Darwin Barney and cash to the Dodgers for a player to be named. The move comes six days after he was designated for assignment by the Cubbies.

Barney won a Gold Glove in 2012 after tying the major league single-season record with 141 consecutive errorless games. But he hit just .230 with 16 RBIs in 72 games this year.

Also in the majors on Monday:

— The Toronto Blue Jays have traded right-hander Liam Hendriks and catcher Erik Kratz to Kansas City for infielder Danny Valencia. The 29-year-old Valencia hit .282 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 36 games for the Royals.

— Tampa Bay has reinstated reliever Joel Peralta from the 15-day disabled list and designated left-hander Erik Bedard for assignment. Peralta went 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA before missing nine games with an illness. Bedard was 4-6 with a 4.76 ERA in 17 games, including 15 starts.

— The Oakland Athletics have put outfielder Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list because of a broken right hand suffered when he was hit by a pitch Sunday in Texas. The A’s filled the roster spot by promoting outfielder Billy Burns from Double-A Midland.
