The Milwaukee Brewers continued to add pitching, trading for San Francisco Giants’ left-hander Drew Pomeranz and reliever Ray Black in exchange for minor league prospect Mauricio Dubon, according to reports.
Dubon, a middle infielder, was ranked as the Brewers’ third-best prospect, as ranked by MLB Pipeline.
Milwaukee acquired right-hander Jordan Lyles from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday and had a reported deadline-day deal for Tampa Bay Rays reliever Jake Faria.
Pomeranz, 30, is 2-9 with a 5.68 ERA in his first season with the Giants, transitioning well to the bullpen after making 17 starts. He has thrown 5 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing one hit, in four consecutive relief appearances.
He signed with San Francisco in the offseason after two-plus season in Boston, where he posted a career-best 17 victories for the Red Sox in 2017.
The ninth-year veteran has a career mark of 46-57 and a 4.09 ERA, pitching for the Colorado Rockies (2011-2013), Oakland A’s (2014-15), San Diego Padres (2016), Boston (2016-18) and San Francisco.
Black, 29, appeared in two games for the Giants this season, allowing a run in two innings. The right-hander had a 6.04 ERA in 25 1/3 career innings across the past two seasons.
Dubon, 25, made his major league debut on July 7 and played in two games for the Brewers, going hitless in two at-bats. He was hitting .297 with an .809 OPS and 16 home runs in 98 games at Triple-A San Antonio.
