The Tigers pulled the trigger on a deal that’ll bring Aubrey Huff to the team for pitching prospect Brett Jacobson. This is basically the left handed bat the Tigers were looking for a couple of weeks ago at the trade deadline, just Huff’s power is all but sapped. He’s hit just 13 home runs this year and his OPS against right handed pitching is just .767 soI’d hardly call this is a high impact trade.
Jacobson was the Tigers fourth round draft pick last season. He was having a fair season for Lakeland after a lights out short season with the Whitecaps last season.
