Brewers trade Triple A first baseman for Yankees LHP Tyler Webb

Share

The New York Yankees acquired first baseman Garrett Cooper from the Milwaukee Brewers for left-handed pitcher Tyler Webb. In 2015, he pitched in 72 2/3 innings for New York's affiliate in Scranton, posting a 3.59 ERA, 1.239 WHIP and 10.2 K/9.

Webb, who faced the Brewers twice last week, has yet to record a decision with a 4.50 ERA in seven appearances this season with the Yankees. He has never appeared in the majors, but the Yankees have a pressing need at first base. While Cooper has spent time in both the outfield and first base in the minors, he projects as a full-time first baseman in the majors, thanks to his size (6-foot-6, 230 pounds) and his power profile, but he was blocked by Eric Thames and Jesus Aguilar in Milwaukee.

Cooper was leading the Pacific Coast League with a.366 batting average and ranked second with 82 runs batted in and was a sixth round draft pick out of Auburn in 2013.

Originally drafted by NY in the 10th round in 2013 out of South Carolina, Webb - who will turn 27 years old next week - was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Rule 5 draft last season but returned to the Yankees after this past spring training. During his five Minor League seasons (2013-17), he has produced 312 strikeouts compared to only 67 walks in 248.0 innings. Cooper has yet to make his big league debut, but has been knocking on the door for some time this year.
