    Yanks trade for 1st baseman

    The Yankees acquired Triple-A first baseman Garrett Cooper from the Brewers on Thursday in exchange for left-handed reliever Tyler Webb.
    The 26-year-old Cooper will enter the Yankees organization as the latest candidate to fill the team's hole at first base. Cooper was hitting .366/.428/.652 with 17 homers and 82 RBIs this season

    Almost 27 years old hitting in the friendlest hitters ball park in the PCL. I'll temper my expectations.

    Greg Bird took BP this week, wonder of the results weren't good and at this point they're just looking for depth.

    Minor move...think the team still wants Bird to fill in.
    We’re pointing out that these statistics breed false narratives, and we value the truth. This isn’t about replacing old numbers with new numbers, or attempting to dissuade anyone from enjoying the aesthetics of the game. It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron

    His splits are crazy. PCL is a very hitter friendly league.

    .300 away
    .443 home

    The Yankees must really like him to give up a left handed reliever, which is also a current need.

    1st base is a major need... Bullpen is very minor at this point... the 3 problems are the stars so they can't replace that... but 1st ... abysmal at best.

    Not much effort involved to say Yankees trade for Garrett Cooper either.

    Garrett Cooper, 6'6" 230, R/R, 26 years old.

    A Brewers blog posted this about him on June 27:

    Garrett Cooper has always produced, even though he has never been a top prospect. He is a former sixth round draft pick from the 2013 class. Cooper has mashed at every level in the Minors, even hitting well in the Florida State League, a notoriously bad hitter’s environment. It’s Cooper’s lack of power that has held him back. However, he has maintained a high average, .303 overall in the minors, and generally made up for a lack of homers with doubles.

    Although everyone would love to see him stay on a 36 home run pace with a .367 batting average, Cooper’s stats at Colorado Springs this year have been greatly aided by the hitter friendly environment. His Isolated Power for the 2017 campaign sits at .256. In 92 games at Double-A, Cooper posted a .120 mark, which is much more in line with his level of production. He clearly enjoys hitting in the thin Colorado air.
