Darwin Barney has been traded by the Dodgers to the Blue Jays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Barney has a .293 on-base percentage in his MLB career but with the Dodgers, it was .429 in 49 plate appearances, all but four of them in 2014. He began 2015 on the Opening Day roster, but was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City April 14 and unlike others, never made a return trip.
The Dodgers designated him for assignment June 12 after acquiring Ronald Torreyes, though Barney cleared waivers and remained for the remainder of the season in Oklahoma City, where he had a .325 OBP and .380 slugging percentage.
