Yankees ship OF/1B Jake Bauers to Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers acquired outfielder/first baseman Jake Bauers from the New York Yankees on Friday for two minor leaguers.

New York received outfielders Jace Avina and Brian Sanchez from the Brewers.

Bauers, 28, batted just .202 with 12 homers and 30 RBIs in 84 games for the Yankees last season.

Bauers has a .211 career average with 39 homers and 140 RBIs in 412 games with the Tampa Bay Rays (2018), Cleveland (2019, 2021), Seattle Mariners (2021) and Yankees.

The trade was consummated shortly before Friday’s non-tender deadline. If New York had offered Bauers a 2024 contract, he would have been on the 40-man roster.

Avina, 20, batted .233 with 14 homers and 50 RBIs in 99 games for Single-A Carolina last season. He was a 14th-round pick in 2021.

Sanchez, 19, batted .297 with no homers and 19 RBIs in 33 games in the Dominican Summer League.
