The Detroit Tigers made a move Monday to try and bolster their offense, as they acquired first baseman Aubrey Huff from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a minor league pitcher.

The Tigers began Monday leading the Chicago White Sox by 2 1/2 games in the AL Central. The last-place Orioles obtained pitcher Brett Jacobson from Detroit and assigned the right-hander to Class A Frederick.

Huff is batting .253 with 13 homers and 72 RBIs. The 32-year-old Huff recently hit his 200th career homer and should fit in nicely in a Detroit lineup that ranks 11th in the AL in runs and seventh in home runs.

Jacobson was 1-3 with six saves and a 3.74 ERA in 35 games with Class A Lakeland this season.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have established the Tigers’ World Series odds at 14/1 and their American League Pennant odds at 7/1.
