Minnesota Twins pitcher Lance Lynn throws against the St. Louis Cardinals in the first inning of a baseball game Wednesday

The Twins had acquired Lynn in free agency this offseason.

Major League Baseball insider Jon Heyman has reported that the Yankees will pick up half of the money remaining on Lynn's one-year, $12 million contract. Lynn, 31, owns a 5.10 ERA and was 7-8 in 20 starts this year for the Twins.

For the New York Yankees, they get injury protection for their rotation and may even be able to give the struggling Luis Severino some extra rest down the stretch.

Lynn, who played college baseball at Ole Miss, becomes the long reliever in place of Warren, who was dealt to the Mariners for $1.25 million in global signing bonus pool allotment. Last season, Lynn started a league-high 33 games and posted a 3.43 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Yankees are $1,950 shy of their maximum bonus pool, the second straight year they've essentially maxed out on bonus allotment.

Soon after, more domestic violence allegations involving Smith surfaced, two different arrests from 2015 and one from 2009. The Columbus Dispatch reports Powell (Ohio) police chief Gary Vest said , to his knowledge, no charges were ever filed .

In moves that should have no impact on the Yanks' current pursuit for October, the Yankees made two deals this week that send minor league talent away for worldwide bonus pool money. Plus, Lynn has bullpen experience in the postseason.

After helping the Cubs win their first World Series since 1908, Chapman re-signed with the Yankees. Austin, who will turn 27 in September, batted.233 with eight homers and 23 RBI in 34 games for the Yankees earlier in the season. He joined Aaron Judge on August 13, 2016, as the first teammates to hit a home run in their first major league at-bats in the same game.

As for Austin, his claim to fame locally is getting hit by a Joe Kelly fastball and starting an April brawl that reignited the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. Rijo. 19, had a 2.77 ERA and a 4-1 record in seven minor league appearances this season.
