NEW YORK (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired first baseman Rowdy Tellez from the Toronto Blue Jays for right-handed pitchers Trevor Richards and Bowden Francis.

The 26-year-old Tellez had been with the Blue Jays’ Triple-A Buffalo affiliate after struggling in the majors this season with a .209 batting average, four homers and eight RBIs in 50 games.

The 28-year-old Richards is changing teams for the second time this season.

The Brewers acquired him from Tampa Bay on May 21. Richards was 3-0 with a 3.20 ERA in 15 games with Milwaukee.

Francis has been pitching in the Brewers’ minor-league system.
