The Giants have traded for Cubs infielder Mike Fontenot for minor-leaguer Evan Crawford.

San Francisco put shortstop Edgar Renteria on the disabled list right before the team announced the trade. Renteria has a right biceps strain and hopes to be back for the pennant race, he told the San Francisco Chornicle 's John Shea .

Fontenot has played second base, third base and shortstop for the Cubs this season. He's hitting .284/.332/.402 with a home run and 20 RBI. Renteria was hitting .278/.342/.364 with two home runs and 21 RBI.

The Cubs are in San Francisco to play the Giants, so Fontenot -- who had a two-run, pinch-hit double in Tuesday night's Cub victory -- will be able to join his new team rather quickly.

UPDATE: The Cubs will call up infielder Darwin Barney on Thursday. The Cubs head to St. Louis after tonight's game in San Francisco.
