#Tigers announce they've traded Jeff Baker to Braves for PTBNL.
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.
