The Yankees have acquired starting pitcher Lance Lynn from the Twins for prospects Luis Rijo and Tyler Austin.

Lynn, 31, has an abysmal 7-8 record with a 5.10 ERA this season in 102 1/3 innings pitched, but he's allowed three or fewer runs in 11 of his last 13 starts.

According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, the Yankees will pay half of what remains on Lynn's one-year deal worth $12 million, while the Twins will pay the other half.

Though Lynn has exclusively been a starter since 2012, the Yankees could throw him in the bullpen, especially during the postseason.

Twins starter Ervin Santana on team's front office: ‘They took our pieces away’ .
Minnesota recently traded away Brian Dozier, Lance Lynn, Fernando Rodney as well as other key contributors. Santana expressed his frustration about the recent deals Friday following the Twins 5-3 loss to the Tigers. “It’s tough, especially when we’re only 10 games out and we have two months left,” Santana said (via the St. Paul Pioneer-Press). “Everybody’s like, ‘They gave up.’ We’re not giving up, but they did. They took our pieces away, and it’s difficult to play without our good pieces … So we just have to play with what we have and try to win games.
