Fantasy Tip: Get ready to get Barney back in your lineups tomorrow. He's mainly middle infield depth in mixed formats but should be owned in most NL-only leagues.

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.

Chicago Cubs 2B Darwin Barney (knee) will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list. INF Alberto Gonzalez will take his place on the roster.

The Chicago Cubs will wait until Monday, April 1, to determine if 2B Darwin Barney (knee) needs to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. INF Alberto Gonzalez would likely take Barney's spot on the 25-man roster if he begins the season on the DL.
Sat, 30 Mar 2013 16:51:18 -0700
Chicago Cubs 2B Darwin Barney (knee) will not be able to play Monday, April 1, because he suffered a deep cut on his knee that needed five stitches. Barney may have to go on the 15-day disabled list if the doctors do not think the cut can heal while he plays. OF Brent Lillibridge likely will start at second base on opening day.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the situation over the next day to see if Barney only misses a few days or needs to be placed on the disabled list. Lillibridge and 3B Luis Valbuena could fill in at second base if Barney misses time but both likely would only be short-term options in National League-only leagues.

Chicago Cubs OF David DeJesus is projected as the team's leadoff hitter, with SS Starlin Castro batting second. 2B Darwin Barney is expected to serve as the team's eighth hitter ahead of the pitcher.
