Aubrey Huff has been dealt to the Detroit Tigers for single A pitcher Brett Jacobson.

According to Roch Kubatko of, Jacobson is a “6 foot 6 reliever who was 1-3 with a 3.74 ERA in 35 games at Single-A Lakeland. He was drafted in the fourth round last year.”

If I had to guess, I’d say this move is strictly just a loan to the Tigers. Huff’s contract is up after the 2009 season and based on what they acquired in the trade I would think that the O’s would bring Aubrey back for the 2010 season.

Luke Scott is starting at first base tonight for the Orioles. With the Orioles outfield set with Reimold, Jones, and Markakis and Felix Pie filling in as the fourth outfielder, I believe that Scott would serve the team much better at first base.
