Rockies Trade Jeff Baker To Cubs

Signs that Aramis Ramirez' dislocated shoulder might be longer-lasting than expected: the Cubs traded for Jeff Baker, according to Yahoo Sports. Baker was used as a utility infielder last year, amassing a career-high .268/.322/.468 line in 333 plate appearances, appearing mostly at second and first with some time at third and in the outfield. It's unknown what the return will be.

Update: The Cubs have DFA'd Ryan Freel, according to an unsourced report from Al Yellon.

A fan post at Purple Row cites the return as Andy Alburquerque according to a report by Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago.

Probably more accurately interpreted that Ryan Freel and Aaron Miles weren't doing their jobs well, the former was DFA'd today and the latter is on the DL, likely to be moved to the 60 day when Ramirez comes back on Monday. Baker's not much of an improvement, though, so most Cub fans are scratching their heads at this one. Maybe it's a precursor to another deal, or at least I can hope.
