Darwin Barney will miss season opener after gashing knee

The Chicago Cubs will be without Gold Glove winner Darwin Barney when Opening Day rolls around. Brent Lillibridge will start at second base in his place.

Barney suffered a deep cut while trying to reach a foul ball.

Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun Times reports that Barney needed five stitches and that team doctors will wait to decide if a trip to the disabled list is needed.

Barney compiled a .254/.299/.354 line last season for the Cubs.
