Milwaukee Brewers Acquire Tyler Webb From New York Yankees For Garrett Cooper

Fantasy Baseball Breaking News

The New York Yankees traded left-handed pitcher Tyler Webb to the Milwaukee Brewers for first baseman prospect Garrett Cooper on Thursday, as first reported by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. The right-handed hitter went 1-for-3 with 1R and 1RBI in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star Game.

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.

With Greg Bird still injured, the Yankees have not had much luck at first base this year.

After the Chicago Cubs made big waves in the baseball world by trading a package of top prospects to the crosstown-rival White Sox for starting pitcher Jose Quintana, many Milwaukee fans wondered - and some anxious - whether the first-place Brewers would make a counter move to try and stay ahead of the defending World Series champions in the NL Central. He was picked up by the Pirates in the 2015 Rule 5 Draft but was dealt back to NY this year.

Cooper, 26, was a former sixth-round pick in the 2013 MLB Draft out of Auburn University. 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.

Going to NY is a great opportunity for the 26-year-old, as the Yankees are badly in need of a first baseman while they wait for Greg Bird to return from the disabled list.

Webb has allowed three earned runs on four walks and three hits in six innings of relief this season at the major league level, but the 26-year-old southpaw was sporting a promising 3.24 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 47/3 K/BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He was batting.366 with 17 HR and 82 RBI in 75 games at Colorado Springs this season.
