Description: Former Rangers 1B/OF/3B Jeff Baker has signed a two-year, $3.7 million deal with Miami, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Insight: The multi-position eligible Baker hit .279 with 11 HR in 154 at-bats. He'll again be a jack-of-all-trades for 2014 and his fantasy value is limited.
 
8/12/2013 1:13:00 PM
Description: Rangers 1B/OF/3B Jeff Baker has produced some exciting numbers in limited action this season and will start at first base on Monday.
Insight: The multi-position eligible Baker is batting .305 with nine home runs and a .987 OPS in 105 at-bats this season.
 
6/18/2013 4:35:00 PM
Description: Rangers 1B/OF Jeff Baker has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right thumb.
Insight: Baker hurt his thumb when a teammate gave him an over-the-top high-five last Thursday and bent his thumb back. Baker is batting .386 (17-for-44) with eight home runs and a 1.491 OPS against left-handed pitching this season.
 
6/6/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: Rangers 1B/OF Jeff Baker blasted a two-run homer off Jon Lester Thursday against the Red Sox.
Insight: In limited duty, Baker is hitting .333 with seven homers and 13 RBI. He should get more playing time with Mitch Moreland on the DL and is worth a pickup in AL-only leagues.
 
5/5/2013 9:29:00 AM
Description: Rangers 1B/OF Jeff Baker has received more playing time lately due to the struggles of David Murphy, who is also dealing with a stomach virus. He's hitting .333 with three homers in 30 at-bats and has been nearly perfect against Boston starter Jon Lester.
Insight: Baker is 6-for-7 (.857) with a double against Lester, and he'll likely be in the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.
 
4/24/2013 11:21:00 AM
Description: Rangers utility man Jeff Baker (.333, 1 HR, 4 RBI) is questionable for Wednesday after injuring himself while trying to make a sliding catch in the left field corner Tuesday night.
Insight: It appears he avoided anything major, but is likely to sit for a day or two.
 
3/14/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Rangers infielder Jeff Baker is batting .529 (18-for-34) with one homer this spring.
Insight: Baker is a utility player who played with three organizations and hit .239 with four homers in 2012. He's a career .266 hitter with a .744 OPS so his spring line is obviously not a harbinger of things to come.
 
8/31/2012 5:57:00 PM
Description: Tigers outfielder Jeff Baker has been designated for assignment.
Insight: Baker (.254, 4 HR, 24 RBI) will probably find work again soon but he's just a role player. You can ignore him for fantasy purposes.
 
5/28/2010 11:53:00 AM
Description: Carrie Muskrat of MLB.com reports Baker (right eye) was removed from Thursday's game after losing vision in his right eye.
Insight: There is no timetable for Baker's return to action. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/13/2010 10:37:00 AM
Description: Baker went 1-for-4 with a home run on Monday against the Brewers.
Insight: Baker got the start against left-handed starter Doug Davis ahead of Mike Fontenot. This looks like a platoon situation, with Fontenot starting against right-handers. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/13/2010 10:14:00 PM
Description: Baker hit a two-run double on Saturday against the White Sox.
Insight: Baker is battling with Mike Fontenot for the starting job at 2B. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/20/2010 8:57:00 AM
Description: Baker agreed to a one-year, $975,000 contract with the Cubs on Tuesday.
Insight: Baker hit .305 with four home runs and 21 RBI last season after missing a few months with a sprained left hand. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/30/2009 1:14:00 AM
Description: Baker went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Pirates on Tuesday.
Insight: Baker now has three doubles, a home run and four RBI over his last five games. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/25/2009 8:20:00 AM
Description: Baker went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Giants on Thursday.
Insight: Baker now has 13 hits over his last eight games and is batting .306 with four homers and 22 RBI. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady7/12/2009 9:56:00 AM
Description: Baker started at second base for the Cubs and went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI.
Insight: It was his first start and first hits as a Cub. He has nice power potential for a middle infielder, but he'll have to earn some playing time before he becomes fantasy relevant. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady7/3/2009 12:39:00 PM
Description: Baker was traded to the Cubs. He is hitting just .130 this season and hasn't played in the majors since April.
Insight: Baker had 12 homers last year and was a nice piece of the Rockie infield. He replaces Ryan Freel on the Cubs roster as a utility infielder. (SportsBuff.com)
