Former Rebel traded from Twins to Yankees

This is a deal that can help both teams and you get the feeling that neither the Minnesota Twins nor the New York Yankees are done making moves.

Austin, who was ranked as New York's No.14 prospect in 2017 by MLB.com, will hope the change of scenery can turn his career around.

As Sherman notes, the Yankees were able to offset nearly all of this salary intake by trading Adam Warren to the Mariners earlier on Monday.

The Twins had acquired Lynn in free agency this offseason.

The Yankees are barreling their way toward a 100-win season, but in part because they trail the Red Sox in the AL East standings (and are thus in line to play in the wild-card "knockout" round), Brian Cashman has been busy reinforcing the pitching staff.

The market for Lynn failed to develop for a majority of the winter and the 31 year-old hurler was forced to ink a one-year, $12 million pact with the Twins in mid-March. Lynn is in his walk year and is owed the balance of a $12 million salary for this season. Lynn missed all of the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he returned to make 33 starts and earn 11 wins for the Cardinals past year.

But Austin never became a regular with the Yankees, slowed by a broken left foot and right hamstring injury a year ago.

Austin, 26, hit.223 (27-for-121) with 16R, 6 doubles, 8HR and 23RBI in 34 games in one stint with the Yankees this season.

Rijo, 19, is 4-1 with a 2.77 ERA in five starts and two relief appearances this year for Class A Tampa and Staten Island, and rookie level Pulaski.
