Jays acquire reliever to complete trade with Rockies for Oh
TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays acquired right-handed relief prospect Bryan Baker from the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday in a move that completes last month’s trade of reliever Seunghwan Oh. The Blue Jays traded Oh to Colorado on July 26 in exchange for prospects Chad Spanberger, Forrest Wall and now Baker, who was listed as a player to be named later in the initial deal.
Baker, 23, made 43 relief appearances this season for the single-A Lancaster JetHawks of the California League, posting a 4-2 record with one save and a 3.80 earnedrun average.
He was an 11th-round pick by the Rockies in the 2016 draft.
