Twins Trade Reliever Zach Duke to Seattle

Adjust Comment Print

One of the team's most-used bullpen arms, the left-handed Duke heads to Seattle in exchange for minor-league pitcher Chase De Jong and minor-league infielder Ryan Costello. He accomplished both by acquiring Sam Tuivailala from St. Louis late last week and then landing Duke. Warren has posted a 2.70 ERA with 37 strikeouts and 12 walks in 24 relief appearances with the Yankees this season. The 35-year-old is walking 3.6 batters per nine innings but hasn't given up a home run all season. He signed with Minnesota in the off-season.

Minnesota made its third trade in three days. The Twins sent infielder Eduardo Escobar to Arizona and dealt reliever Ryan Pressly to Houston.
