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

Cooper, 26, was selected by Milwaukee in the sixth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.

The New York Yankees acquired first baseman Garrett Cooper from the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday for left-handed reliever Tyler Webb. The rest of the season, Webb has dominated at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 2-1, with a 3.24 ERA in 21 relief appearances.

Webb had worked his way up the Yankee farm system since being drafted by the Bombers in the 10th round in 2013.

The Brewers will decide before they return to action tomorrow night whether to add Webb to their bullpen or assign him to Colorado Springs. He made his major-league debut two days later against the Rangers. The 26-year-old is batting.366/.428/.652 in 75 games this year with 17 home runs and 82 RBIs. A career.305 hitter who never previously had more than nine homers and 69 RBI in a season, Cooper has never had a major-league plate appearance.

Greg Bird's ongoing ankle injury issues have forced NY to hand over the reins to a combination of Chris Carter, who was released Tuesday; Tyler Austin, who's been sidelined with hamstring issues since June 28; Rob Refsnyder, who first took up the position previous year; Austin Romine, the team's primary backup catcher; and Ji-Man Choi, a rookie who's shown promise in his short stint with the Yankees thus far.

Thursday's trade may not be one that ultimately has much of an impact for either team.
