Yankees acquire Lance Lynn from Twins

The Yankees continued their midseason roster makeover on Monday, acquiring right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn and cash considerations from the Twins while obtaining international bonus pool money from the Mariners in separate transactions.

New York shipped infielder Tyler Austin and right-hander Luis Rijo to Minnesota for the 31-year-old Lynn, who is expected to further bolster the Yankees’ rotation following last week’s acquisition of J.A. Happ. The Bombers parted with right-hander Adam Warren in the Seattle trade.

“It’s the New York Yankees,” Lynn said. “As a fan of the game growing up, it’s exciting for me, as a young kid — seeing them in their heyday, winning a lot of World Series championships. You look at their team now, they’re going for it. I’m excited for that opportunity and that challenge. It’s going to be a different experience. I’m just going to go in there and try to do everything I can to help, wherever that may be.”
