Tigers get Ross as PTBNL in Baker trade

The Tigers announced Tuesday they'd acquired right-handed pitcher Greg Ross from Atlanta as the player to be named later in the Aug. 31 trade that sent utility player Jeff Baker to the Braves.

Just turned 23 this month, Ross was originally an 18th-round draft pick out of Frostburg State, an NCAA Division III school in Maryland, the third player ever selected from the school. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder had good strikeout numbers at Class A Rome this summer, going 7-9 with 4.60 ERA in 131 innings pitched, striking out 106, and walking 40. He posted a WHIP of 1.420 and a hits-per-nine ratio of 10.0.

The Tigers still have to send two players to be named later to the Cubs in the original trade that brought Baker (pictured at right) to Detroit.
