Dodgers send Jonathan Martinez to Cubs to complete Darwin Barney trade

Great Lakes Loons

Barney was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Wednesday completed their trade for infielder Darwin Barney, sending Class-A pitcher Jonathan Martinez to the Cubs as the player to be named later. The Dodgers also optioned Barney to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Barney was acquired from Chicago on Monday, with the Dodgers paying $500,000 of the roughly $780,000 remaining on his 2014 salary.

Martinez was 7-5 with a 3.47 ERA in 19 starts with Great Lakes this season, with 91 strikeouts and 19 walks in 106... innings. He won Midwest League pitcher of the week honors for the week of June 16-22. Martinez was slated to start on Monday afternoon in Peoria but was scratched in the middle of the first inning, before even throwing a pitch.

"Martinez was healthy, said Jordan Hershiser, his last-minute replacement," wrote John Parker of MiLB.com on Monday. "His teammates surmised that, with the MLB trade deadline looming, perhaps Martinez was part of a deal or was being promoted, but nothing had been announced."

The 20-year-old right-hander was signed by the Dodgers out of Venezuela on May 31, 2011.
