Another player the Brewers were said to be interested in adding to their club via trade has found a new home. The Yankees have acquired left-hander Zach Britton from the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles for three prospects. Right-hander Dillon Tate is going to the Orioles along with left-hander Josh Rogers and right-hander Cody Carroll. The teams announced the deal Tuesday night. Britton is eligible to become a free agent after this season, which makes him a summer rental for the Yankees in their pursuit of first-place Boston in the AL East.
