Tigers get pitcher Greg Ross from Braves

The Detroit Tigers acquired pitcher Greg Ross from the Atlanta Braves, completing the exchange for sending outfielder Jeff Baker to Atlanta on Aug. 31 for a player to be named later.

The 23-year-old Ross has appeared in 25 games for the Single-A Rome Braves this season, starting 21 of those games and going 7-9 with a 4.60 ERA and 106 strikeouts over 131 innings. Ross will be assigned to the Advanced-A Lakeland Flying Tigers.

The Tigers sent Baker to the Braves on Aug. 31 after acquiring him from the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 5. Baker has appeared in 10 games with the Braves, going 1-for-9 with one run and an RBI.

The Tigers still have to send two players to Chicago by Oct. 31 to complete the terms of the Aug. 5 trade with the Cubs.

Tigers Trade Jeff Baker To Atlanta Braves

After designating utility infielder Jeff Baker for assignment this afternoon to make room for outfielder Avisail Garcia, the Detroit Tigers have agreed to trade Baker to the Atlanta Braves, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com:

The Tigers acquired Baker from the Chicago Cubs in early August for a player to be named later. He played in 15 games for the Tigers, hitting .200 with no home runs and four RBIs.

In 55 games at Double-A Erie, Garcia was hitting .312 with six home runs and 22 RBIs. He also played at Single-A Lakeland this season, hitting .289 eight home runs and 36 RBIs in 67 games. The Tigers hope Garcia can boost the offense against left-handed pitching.
