In 2017, Baker made 13 relief appearances with Double-A Akron, going 0-1 with a 2.84 ERA (4 ER/12.2 IP) and struck out 10 against just one walk. He also appeared in four games (two starts) with Rookie-level AZL Indians going 1-0 and allowed just two runs (one earned) in 4.0 innings. Baker was claimed off waivers on November 27, 2017 by the Brewers.

Baker was originally selected by the Indians in the fifth round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Western Nevada College.

The Dodgers now have 40 players on the 40-man roster.
