Darwin Barney dealing with part-time status


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager could play matchups at second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) 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."
