Mariners acquire relievers Adam Warren and Zach Duke


The Seattle Mariners have added to their bullpen by acquiring left-handed reliever Zach Duke from the Minnesota Twins for a pair of minor leaguers.

Seattle sent pitcher Chase De Jong and infielder Ryan Costello to the Twins on Monday, less than 24 hours before the non-waiver trade deadline. They are sending worldwide bonus pool money, with sources telling ESPN the total is $1.25 million, to the Yankees.

Duke, a 14-year veteran, is 3-4 with four saves and a 3.62 ERA in 37 1/3 innings pitched for the Twins this season. The 35-year-old is walking 3.6 batters per nine innings but hasn't given up a home run all season.

Warren has tallied a 2.70 ERA in 24 games for NY in 2018. In his past 10 innings, however, he has allowed six runs.

De Jong, a second-round pick by Toronto in 2012, has started 21 games for Double-A Arkansas this season.

Lynn and Duke were both inked to one-year deals this offseason, part of a flurry of short-term signings expected to help the Twins improve on last season's 85-77 campaign that ended in a.
