The Atlanta Braves acquired utility player Jeff Baker from the Detroit Tigers for a player to be named later or cash, MLB.com reported Friday.

The Tigers designated the 31-year-old Baker for assignment earlier in the day.

Baker is hitting .254 with four home runs this year. He was traded to Detroit by the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 5. Baker was just 7-for-35 for the Tigers.

Baker has mainly played in right field this season but has also played at first base, second base, third base and left field.
