Detroit Tigers Add Aubrey Huff...

Timothy DudekContributor IAugust 17, 2009
The Tigers have acquired Aubrey Huff from the Orioles for right-handed pitcher Brett Jacobson.

Detroit had been looking for offense since prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. It's easier for the Tigers to add Huff now that Carlos Guillen, who had been their designated hitter against right-handed pitching, is capable of playing in the field.

Huff batted .253 with 13 home runs and 72 RBI in 110 games for Baltimore this season.

Huff has spent most of the year at first base, with some time at DH. In a statement, Tigers president/general manager Dave Dombrowski said he liked Huff's versatility and "ability to play numerous positions."
