DOWN ON THE FARM – Trent Baker released
OF Trent Baker has been released by the Cleveland Indians today. Trent, from Brisbane, was signed as a 17yr old OF in 2007 during his time at the MLBAAP but didn’t get to compete in Rookie ball until the 2009 season. He spent most of his two years bouncing around in A ball but never did get his hitting sorted against the pro pitchers and generally had averages in the low 200’s.
He threw left handed and hit right – an unusual combination in an outfielder.
