The Tigers have acquired Aubrey Huff from the Orioles in exchange for right-handed Brett Jacobson, John Paul Morosi is reporting. The Tigers has been looking for additional power since early July, but have been unable to work a deal until now.

The move will likely keep Guillen in the DH spot, allowing Jim Leyland to try multiple lineups with the versatile Huff, who can play first, third, and the corner outfield spots. The Tigers are eleventh in average and runs scored in the AL and hope Huff, who is second in RBIs and fourth in runs scored with the Orioles, can improve some of the quieter bats in the Tigers lineup.
