Twenty minutes before this deal, Seattle snagged reliever Zach Duke from the Twins. But Warren gives them another three quality relievers they have acquired this season after also trading for Alex Colome on May 25 in a deal with the Rays.
The 30-year-old Warren has another strong season, posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 11.1 strikeouts per nine innings in 24 appearances this season. More importantly, Warren brings postseason experience to a Seattle team that is dying to end the longest active playoff drought by a team in the four major professional sports (17 years). For the Yankees last year, he pitched in three games (2 in the ALCS, 1 in the ALDS) last year, posting a 2.08 and 0.69 WHIP in 4 1⁄3 innings pitched.
