New York Yankees relief pitcher Tyler Webb throws against the Chicago White Sox during the ninth inning of

Joel Sherman reports that 1B/OF prospect Garrett Cooper will be heading to NY to complete the deal.

Another intriguing and unforeseen development in the Yankees' first base equation is the recent news that NY had shipped out lefty rookie reliever Tyler Webb in exchange for Brewers first base prospect Garrett Cooper, who's been one of the hottest hitters in Triple-A this year. Previous year in Triple-A he struck out 82 in 72 innings with a 3.59 ERA.

The list of nominees for the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards , announced Thursday by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. A broadcast network hasn't fielded a best drama series contender since CBS' " The Good Wife " was nominated in 2011.

Webb was assigned to Triple-A but made his major-league debut last month and has appeared in seven games for the Yankees, including facing the Brewers twice last week, working six innings and allowing three earned runs on three hits. The Brewers contributed to that damage, scoring two of the six runs he allowed and coming back against him to tie and eventually beat NY last Friday.

Webb was selected by the Yankees in the 10th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. He'll report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the meantime. The 26-year-old owns a 15-14 record with a 3.45 ERA in 150 games over five minor league seasons with the organization. But the Brewers already have two first baseman at the Major League level in Eric Thames and Jesus Aguilar.
