According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Chicago Cubs will receive 20 year-old right-hander, Jonathan Martinez, as the Player To Be Named Later (PTBNL) in the deal that sent Darwin Barney to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

 

In 2011, the Dodgers signed Martinez out of Venezuela at just 16 years-old. At 6’1” and 170 lb, Martinez is considered to have three average pitches, fastball, slider, and changeup. (Per MLBpipeline.com)

If anything changes we will have an update.

(UPDATE 3:25 PM CST)

The LA Dodgers twitter account has confirmed that the deal is done.
