Akil Baddoo is heading back to Triple-A Toledo. It’s a move coming from a struggling Tigers team, looking to reverse their string of losses.

The announcement came Monday (May 9) before the Tigers’ five-game home series with the Oakland A’s.

Baddoo is one of several Tigers hitters who has been struggling this year. The Tigers currently have the worst in the majors, with 78 runs.
