Darwin Barney dealing with part-time status
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney was benched Thursday for the fourth time in nine games this season. That marks the first time in his career he has missed that many games in an identical stretch not marred by injury.

"That's the nature of the game," he told the Chicago Sun-Times. "And last year happened. So I have to continue to show that's not who I am."

Barney slipped from .276 to .254 to .208 in the last three seasons. The sizzling start of all-purpose Emilio Bonifacio has also contributed to Barney becoming a part-timer so far this year.

Report: Rangers scout Darwin Barney Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rangers had a major-league scout at Tuesday's Cubs-Angels game to evaluate Cubs infielder Darwin Barney, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Rangers are on the lookout for a viable replacement for second baseman Jurickson Profar, who will miss 10-to-12 weeks with a torn muscle in his shoulder. The Cubs have a plethora of highly-rated infielders coming through the farm system, including Javier Baez, who is expected to join the team at some point this season.

Cubs manager could play matchups at second base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Darwin Barney remains the team's starting second baseman, but his playing time might be reduced as Renteria looks for favorable matchups at times. Luis Valbuena and Emilio Bonifacio are both options to see playing time at second base.

"I think as we go into the season, we have certain guys who we’re going to put into a particular position and the second day you might see a different lineup," Renteria said, per The Chicago Tribune. "The reality is the matchups we have and are looking at throughout the course of the season will determine how we use all our guys.

"I’m fortunate enough to have the flexibility with guys and matchups and different scenarios that could occur during the course of a season. I have the ability to do that with them. I want to put them in the best position to have success."

Tigers targeting two Cubs to fill holes created by injuries
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs outfielder Nate Schierholtz and second baseman Darwin Barney are on the radar of the Tigers, CBS Chicago has speculated. Injuries have sidelined Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks, who was to platoon against right-handers, and shortstop Jose Iglesias.

Barney has rarely played shortstop in the major leagues, but could fill that role with Detroit. He has looked decent at that position this spring in filling in for the injured Starlin Castro.

Darwin Barney to see some action at short
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Darwin Barney will start at shortstop Thursday, according to MLB.com.

With Starlin Castro currently sidelined, Barney will slide over. Barney is regarded as an excellent fielder at second, and has occasionally played short in a pinch the past couple years. He hit .208/.266/.303 in 501 at-bats last season.
