New York Yankees acquire Lance Lynn from Minnesota Twins for 2 prospects


The New York Yankees have acquired Minnesota Twins right-handed starter Lance Lynn in a trade for minor league prospects Tyler Austin and Luis Rijo.

The Yankees also receive cash considerations in the deal.

Lynn spent his first six seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, with whom he won a World Series as a rookie in 2011. Lynn joined the Twins in March on a $12 million, one-year contract that includes bonuses of $1 million each for pitching 170 and 180 innings. He made 20 starts for the Twins, going 7-8 with a 5.10 ERA.

Lynn had Tommy John surgery that caused him to miss the 2016 season. He returned and tied a career high and the NL lead with 33 starts last year.
