Whether the answer to the Yankees' first base riddle is Bird, or Cooper, or the hodgepodge of youngsters that have held the job amid continual injury issues, the team will have to nail down a reliable solution if they want to stay in contention down the stretch. 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). He looks as if he will be merely cheap bullpen depth for Milwaukee.

The New York Yankees did not exactly make the blockbuster move that the Chicago Cubs did, but they made a trade Thursday afternoon.

He was a 10th round pick in 2013 out of SC by the Yankees. 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.

Cooper, meanwhile, is having a terrific season at the Triple-A level for Colorado Springs. 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. He has yet to appear in the majors, although that may be a matter of time with New York's pressing need at first base. It's possible the Brewers viewed Cooper's path to the big leagues blocked by slugging first basemen Eric Thames and Jesus Aguilar - even if the former is 30 and the latter 27 and both are having unanticipated career years.
