The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired left-handed reliever Tyler Webb from the New York Yankees in exchange for first baseman Garrett Cooper.

Webb, who turns 27-years-old next Thursday, has been assigned to Triple-A Colorado Springs. During two stints with the Yankees this season (6/22-6/25 and 6/27-time of trade), he went 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in 7 relief appearances (6ip, 3h, 3r, 3er, 4bb, 5k, 1hr, .158ba).

He made his Major League debut on June 24 vs. Texas. He also went 3-1 with a 3.24 ERA and 1 save in 21 relief appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre (33.1ip, 33h, 12r, 12er, 3bb, 47k, 3hr, .250ba).

Webb was selected by the Yankees in the 10th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. After being acquired by Pittsburgh in this past winter’s Rule 5 Draft, he was returned to New York on April 1. During his five Minor League seasons (2013-17), he has produced 312 strikeouts compared to only 67 walks in 248.0 innings.

Cooper, 26, was selected by Milwaukee in the sixth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. He was batting .366 with 17 HR and 82 RBI in 75 games at Colorado Springs this season.
