I pushed for the Orioles to sign Baker last season. He would have come at like half the price. I think Baker would be a nice addition to a lot of teams, but I'm not so sure he has a position here in Baltimore. The Orioles already have two LHP mashers on the roster; Danny Valencia and Steve Pearce.
Career vs. LHP- Steve Pearce- 1B, LF, RF- .266/.351/.455
Career vs. LHP- Danny Valencia- 1B, 3B- .329/.367/.513
Career vs. LHP- Jeff Baker- 1B, 2B, 3B, LF, RF- .298/.353/.522
Jeff Baker is versatile, cheap, a lefty killer, and will make a great complementary piece on the a major league baseball team. But does he really fit with the Orioles?
