Breaking News: Sabathia To Milwaukee

The Indians and Brewers have a deal in place that will send former Cy Young winner C.C. Sabathia to the Brewers for Double-A outfielder Matt LaPorta and two other minor leaguers in return.

The Brewers will not give up Alcides Escobar and Mat Gamel in the deal.

Sabathia will join Ben Sheets in the rotation, making the Brewers a contender in the NL Central race.

The deal was initially reported in The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, as well as ESPN.

Sabathia is not expected to re-sign with the Brewers at the end of the season. If he leaves, Milwaukee will receive two first-round picks.
