The quick wingman was drafted after impressing with his development in the NEAFL. He had previously been a member of the Brisbane Lions academy system before being released at 15 years old. He grew 13cm between his time at the academy and being drafted.
Baker was challenging for a spot in the senior side in late 2018 when a hamstring injury late in the season ended his year and kept him out of the Casey Demons finals campaign. He made his debut the next year, playing nine games, then returned for three games in 2020. Baker played a further three times in 2021, twice as unused medical substitute, but was not selected in the senior side at all in 2022. Played in Casey's 2022 VFL premiership side but was delisted at the end of the season. He then joined the Western Bulldogs as a free agent, immediately becoming a regular in their side, playing 18 games in his first season.
Wore a black armband in all his games as a tribute to his mother, who passed away from cancer.
