Detroit dealt Baker on Friday, the same day he was designated for assignment. The Braves will give the Tigers a player to be named later no later than Sept. 30.
Baker hit .200 with four RBIs in 15 games with the Tigers, who got him less than a month ago from the Chicago Cubs for two minor leaguers to be named.
Baker has a career .268 batting average over eight seasons with the Tigers, Cubs and Colorado.
