Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cubs | Darwin Barney close to returning

Chicago Cubs 2B Darwin Barney (knee) will have the stitches removed from his left knee Friday, April 12, before going on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa over the weekend. He's expected to return to the team for their game Tuesday, April 16. He's eligible to come off the disabled list Monday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Barney doesn't give you much besides a respectable batting average. He should be owned in most NL-only leagues, though, as middle infield depth, but you can ignore him in mixed leagues.
