The Cubs sent second baseman Darwin Barney and cash consideration to the Dodgers for a player to be named later on Monday.

The 28-year-old Barney was designated for assignment on July 22 after hitting .230 with two homers and 10 doubles in 72 games this season. Since his Cubs debut in 2010, he has hit .244 with 18 homers in 542 games.

Barney earned a Gold Glove in 2012 after tying a major league single-season record with 141 consecutive errorless games at second.
