Player Profile: Aaron Baker

I have one card of Aaron Baker, from 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: First baseman Aaron Baker was the Pirates eleventh round draft choice in 2009. Two years later, he was sent to the Orioles in the Derrek Lee trade. In 2012 he hit .266 with 22 HR and 72 RBI in the Orioles A team in Frederick.

Where he is now: In 17 games at AA Bowie he is hitting .265 with 3 HR and 4 RBI.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Aaron Ba, between Aaron Barrett, singer for the band Reel Big Fish, and Aaron Basha Prices, referring to a jeweler. The first result is not the ballplayer but a personal trainer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be James Baldwin III.
