Baker has been in Major League Baseball since 2005, bouncing between the Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs and Detroit, primarily playing first and second base.

This is Baker's second trade in a month, having started August with the Chicago Cubs before being traded to Detroit. Baker has batted .254 between the two teams, including 13 extra base hits and four home runs.
