Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that the Tigers asked the Cubs about the availability of Darwin Barney a couple weeks ago.

Talks failed to progress and it's not clear if they'll be revisited. Tigers' second baseman have combined for a woeful .198/.272/.266 batting line and a .538 OPS this season, so while Barney is hardly an appealing option, it's no surprise to hear that they are asking around for help.
