The Braves sent low-A right-handed pitcher Greg Ross to the Tigers to complete the August 31st trade for utility-man Jeff Baker.
Ross was drafted in the 18th round last year out of Frostburg State University in Maryland. He spend this season in the single-A Rome Braves starting rotation, throwing 131 innings, while putting up a 4.60 ERA and a 1.420 WHIP. He's never been considered a prospect, more of an organizational arm.
Since being acquired from Detroit, Jeff Baker has played sparingly for the Braves. He's make it into only 10 games, compiling only 10 plate appearances and just two starts. He has only played left field for Atlanta.
We haven't seen enough of Baker to get a good read on him. He seems like a capable utility guy and pinch hitter, and I suppose he's doing about as good as our other pinch hitters, which is not good.
