According to a report from Bruce Levine, Darwin Barney will be placed on the 15-day DL Wednesday with a Grade 1 PCL strain in his right knee. Barney suffered the injury Monday night sliding into home with the eventual winning run.
Barney does not think he needs more than a week to be back at full strength but feels it is best for him and the team to spend the next two weeks on the shelf. Alfonso Soriano is expected to be activated from the DL before Wednesday night’s game against the Brewers. With Barney headed to the DL, the roster decisions should be a little easier for the Cubs on Wednesday.
Darwin Barney will join the long list of players that have been placed on the disabled list this season.
