As the Los Angeles Dodgers continued to be linked to trade rumors involving starting pitchers, the team made a minor deal Monday.

The Dodgers acquired infielder Darwin Barney and cash considerations from the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later or cash. Barney, who was designated for assignment on July 22, is capable of providing infield depth at both second base and shortstop.

The 28-year-old infielder will more than likely be used to spell starting second baseman Dee Gordon, who has played 100 of the 106 games for the Dodgers this season.

In 2012, Barney won the Gold Glove Award while tying a single-season record for not committing an error in 141 consecutive games. While Barney can flash the leather on defense, he is recognized more for his bat. This season, he is hitting .230 and has a .265 OBP.
