LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Dodgers Monday acquired second baseman Darwin Barney from the Chicago Cubs.

The club got the 28-year-old infielder in addition to cash considerations from the Cubs in exchange for a player to be named later or other cash considerations.

Barney, 28, won a Rawlings Gold Glove Award at second base in 2012 and has a .990 combined fielding percentage at second base, third base and shortstop in five Major League seasons with Chicago from 2010-14.

In 542 career games at the plate, he has a .244 career batting average with 18 home runs and 146 RBI.

Barney was originally selected by the Cubs in the fourth round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft out of Oregon State University.
