The Brewers have acquired left-handed starter Drew Pomeranz and right-handed reliever Ray Black from the San Francisco Giants for infielder Mauricio Dubon, according to ESPN.

With the Giants, Pomeranz had a 5.68 ERA and has gone 2-9 this season. Black spent his season with the Giants' Triple-A team in Sacramento and joins the Brewers with a 5.16 ERA.

The Brewers have continued to prove they are in the market for pitchers after a season in which they've seen their struggles on the mound.

Mauricio Dubon was a top minor league prospect as an infielder with a .297 batting average and 16 home runs.

Earlier Wednesday, the Brewers traded All-Star first-baseman Jesus Aguilar to the Tampa Bay Rays for pitcher Jake Faria.
