Jeff Baker was released as a disciplinary measure

Former Miami Marlins infielder Jeff Baker was released last month for "spreading a negative message in the clubhouse." He has yet to catch on with any other teams.

Fantasy Impact

There were several negative quotes that came to light around the trade deadline, most of which can now likely be attributed to Baker. A useful player in small doses, his attitude and injury recovery may be keeping him off the radar of other teams.

Jeff Baker activated from 15-day DL, then released

Jeff Baker was released after recovering from an intercostal strain.

Fantasy Impact

His slash line is a poor .208/.288/.375, but the 34-year-old specializes in terrorizing lefties so he'll find a job with some team.

Jeff Baker starts in Justin Bour's stead again

Justin Bour will be on the bench in Saturday's game and Jeff Baker will get the start at first base.

Fantasy Impact

Baker has started in three of the last four games after Bour started 30 games. Baker will bat fifth and this will be his 12th start at first base this season.

Jeff Baker struggling at the plate this spring

Although Jeff Baker knocked in 2 of the 9 Marlins' runs against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, it's been a rough spring for Baker. He went 1-for-4 in the game and is batting an anemic .154 this spring. Baker hit .264 with a .701 OPS in 208 at bats last season.

Fantasy Impact

Baker has been a solid backup, who has played for six Major League teams during his ten-year career. He has never reached 300 at bats in a season and doesn't excel in any one statistical category. Baker is at best a decent fantasy replacement in deeper leagues.
