The Tigers, who tried but failed to address their offensive woes before the July 31 deadline, have acquired Aubrey Huff from the Orioles in exchange for minor-league pitcher Brett Jacobson.
Huff was hitting .253 with 13 home runs and 72 RBIs for the Orioles. Huff has slumped in the second half, but his RBI total is still more than any Tiger player has this year.
The Tigers were one of several teams that talked to the Orioles about Huff before the non-waiver deadline. The Giants also showed interest.
