Braves bolster bench
#Braves just acquired IF Jeff Baker from Detroit for a PTBNL or cash considerations. Former Clemson Tiger.

Baker, a right-handed bat, could get some starts at 2B in place of Uggla. Baker is a career.298 hitter against southpaws, with a .505 slugging percentage.
He’ll fill the roster spot vacated by Jack “of No Trades” Wilson, who was released today.
