MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Marlins acquired left-hander Wade LeBlanc from the San Diego Padres on Tuesday for catcher John Baker.

LeBlanc went 5-6 with a 4.63 ERA for the Padres last season, winning three of his last four decisions. In parts of four seasons with the Padres, LeBlanc went 17-22 with a 4.54 ERA, starting 52 times and coming in as a reliever twice.

Baker was limited to 16 games last season after having elbow reconstruction surgery in September 2010. He was 2 for 13, all but one of those at-bats coming as a pinch-hitter. In 212 career games with the Marlins, Baker batted .271 with 14 home runs and 89 RBIs.
