Greg Ross acquired from Braves as PTBNL in Baker trade … no, the second Baker trade

The Player to Be Named has been named in the Jeff Baker trade — not the deal that sent him from the Cubs to the Tigers in early August, but the deal that sent him from Detroit to Atlanta a few weeks later. It’s Class A right-hander Greg Ross, who went 7-9 with a 4.60 ERA this year in the South Atlantic League.

Ross made 25 appearances for Rome in the Sally League, 21 of them starts. He allowed 146 hits over 131 innings while striking out 106.

Ross was an 18th-round draft pick in 2011 from Frostburg State University in Maryland. He has been assigned to high Class A Lakeland.

Still to be announced are the two Players to Be Named Later that the Tigers are set to send to the Cubs for the first Baker trade.

JL recently referred to this year as “confusing” and noted the pitching has been solid and the offense okay. JL added that he thought the Tigers would wear out 4 and 5 staters, which obviously hasn’t happened. That last thought pretty much sums up why the team’s record is not what was expected coming out of spring training.
