The Detroit Tigers optioned infielder Danny Worth to Triple-A following yesterday’s game, the team announced:
Worth was recently recalled to fill the roster spot left vacant by Ryan Raburn, who hit the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right thumb. On the year, the infielder has hit .206/.321/.250 over 68 at-bats for the Tigers.
It was the second time this season Worth was optioned to make room for an acquisition, as the 26-year-old was also demoted when Omar Infante was activated.
Prior to being traded to the Tigers, Baker had hit .269/.306/.448 with ten doubles and four home runs over 134 at-bats with the Cubs. The 31-year-old has manned first, second and third base as well as both corner outfield positions over the past two seasons.
