Detroit Tigers president of baseball operations Scott Harris and his former boss, San Francisco Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, have linked up on a trade.
The Tigers acquired outfielder Steele Walker — the No. 46 overall pick in the 2018 draft — from the Giants for cash considerations, the team announced Tuesday. Walker made his MLB debut in June 2022 with the Texas Rangers.
The 26-year-old, a left-handed hitter, projects as organizational depth with upside.
Walker played five games for the Rangers last season, going 1-for-14 with two walks and four strikeouts. He notched his first hit — a solo home run off Cleveland Guardians starter Cal Quantrill — in the second game of his career.
