Brewers acquire Tellez from Blue Jays for Richards, Francis

Brewers general manager David Stearns addressed a need by trading with a fellow contender for the second time in less than seven weeks. The National League Central-leading Brewers added a power-hitting first baseman, acquiring left-handed hitting Rowdy Tellez from the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday for right-handed pitchers Trevor Richards and Bowden Francis. Tellez, 26, 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.
