PHOENIX -- While Blake DeWitt was back playing Saturday, both Darwin Barney and Ian Stewart continued to be on the mend.

DeWitt was in the lineup at third base in the Cubs’ split-squad game at Las Vegas against the Texas Rangers. It was his first action since getting hit on the hand by a pitch in a game Thursday against the Colorado Rockies.

Barney (side strain) and Stewart (tight quadriceps muscle) have both been out of action since early in the week. Neither injury is considered to be serious and both players are expected to return to action next week.

Barney is working through his injury with the team in Las Vegas. Stewart has remained in Arizona as he recovers.

Adrian Cardenas started at second base at Las Vegas and Jeff Baker started at second in Phoenix against the A’s. DeWitt started at third at Las Vegas, while Josh Vitters started at third against the A’s.
