MILWAUKEE GETS Webb in trade with the NY Yankees.
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired left-handed reliever Tyler Webb from the New York Yankees for minor league first baseman Garrett Cooper.
The trade was announced Thursday. Webb had a 4.50 ERA in seven appearances this year season with the Yankees without recording a decision.
Webb made his big-league debut June 24 after going 3-1 with a 3.24 ERA in 21 games at Class AAA. He turns 27 next week.
The Brewers say they haven’t determined whether he’ll be assigned to the minors or join the big-league team. He could eventually join a bullpen that has been inconsistent at times except for All-Star closer Corey Knebel.
