Adam Warren (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

It'll be the first mound workout for Warren since he landed on the disabled list September 6, retroactive to September 3, with a lower back injury. The hope is he can return to the Yankees' bullpen before the end of the regular season. Warren boasts a 2.40 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 53/15 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings this year for New York.
Sep 20 - 10:45 AM

Adam Warren (back) played long toss on flat ground prior to Saturday's game.

Warren reported no issues on Sunday, which is a good sign. The Yankees are working on a plan to get him back on the mound, with hopes of a return before the end of the regular season. Warren has been excellent when healthy this season, posting a 2.40 ERA and 53/15 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings.
Sep 18 - 9:30 AM

Adam Warren (back) will rest for the next two weeks.

Warren came down with lower back spasms during Sunday's game against the Red Sox and was placed on the disabled list earlier on Wednesday. Given that he will not even begin taking part in baseball-related activities until September 20 (at the earliest), his availability for the rest of the regular season is now seriously in jeopardy.
Sep 6 - 5:28 PM

Yankees placed RHP Adam Warren on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to September 3, with lower back spasms.

Warren has struggled to stay healthy this season. Prior to this most recent disabled list stint, he missed close to a month of action earlier in the summer due to a bout of right shoulder inflammation. There is no current timetable for his return from this current struggle with back spasms.
Sep 6 - 4:44 PM

Yankees activated RHP Adam Warren from the 10-day disabled list.

Warren felt good coming out of a simulated game on Sunday, which was apparently enough to convince the Yankees that he's ready to return. The 29-year-old has been out since mid-June with right shoulder inflammation.
Jul 4 - 11:52 AM

Adam Warren (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Warren threw a simulated inning and "felt great," and it sounds like he'll probably be activated without going out on a rehab assignment. He's been sidelined since mid-June with right shoulder inflammation.
Jul 2 - 12:01 PM

Adam Warren (shoulder) has been playing catch.

Warren's recovery from right shoulder inflammation has come slower than expected. He's hoping to return at some point during the Yankees' next homestand, which begins in a week.
Jun 26 - 5:09 PM

Yankees placed RHP Adam Warren on the 10-day disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation.

Warren has been unavailable the past few days so this move doesn't come as a major surprise. He should be ready to return to the Yankees' bullpen by the end of June.
Jun 16 - 6:49 PM

Adam Warren has been unavailable the last two games due to a trap muscle issue.

It could require a disabled list stint if it doesn't improve soon. Warren has posted an excellent 2.23 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 30/9 K/BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings this season out of the Yankees' bullpen.
Jun 16 - 5:48 AM

Adam Warren got the final four outs Sunday against the Athletics to earn his first save.

Dellin Betances was used for a five-out save on Saturday, so the Yankees let Warren finish out this one. The right-hander didn't allow a hit and lowered his season ERA to 2.73. Warren also has a shiny 0.84 WHIP.
May 28 - 4:26 PM

Adam Warren is expected to open the season in the Yankees' bullpen.

Warren has been competing for one of the final two spots in the rotation, but he didn't pitch well Saturday and the Yanks appear to prefer him in a swingman capacity. It looks to be down to Bryan Mitchell, Luis Severino, Chad Green and Jordan Montgomery for the Bombers' last two rotation spots.
Mar 26 - 9:53 AM

Adam Warren surrendered four earned runs in 3 1/3 innings of work against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out four. A pair of home runs were the primary culprits. The poor outing puts a dent in his hopes to snare the fifth and final slot in the Yankees' starting rotation. He has a 4.80 ERA with 10 strikeouts in 15 innings. He registered a 4.68 ERA in 65 1/3 innings with the Cubs and Yankees in 2016.
Mar 25 - 4:52 PM

Adam Warren allowed one run over 3 2/3 innings Sunday in the Yankees' 6-4 win over the Astros.

While never officially ruled out of the rotation mix, it sure seemed like Warren had been ticketed for the bullpen all spring. Perhaps that's changing now, as Luis Severino, Luis Cessa and Chad Green have failed to step up. Only Bryan Mitchell has really performed as hoped, and if he's in, that'd still leave one vacancy. The guess is that the Yankees still view Warren as a fallback, but it's a fallback they might have to use. In our opinion, he's clearly a better option than Cessa, Green and Mitchell and quite likely an improvement over the still inconsistent Severino, too.
Mar 19 - 5:03 PM

Adam Warren yielded one hit and one run over three innings Thursday in the Yankees’ Grapefruit League win over the Orioles.

Warren fanned three and walked one. The only hit he allowed was a solo home run by Caleb Joseph (that’s more RBI than Joseph had all of last season). Other than that Warren was money, retiring six in a row to begin the game and then three straight following a walk to Adrian Marin in the third inning. Warren will probably open the year in the Yankees’ bullpen but could see time in the rotation if injuries arise.
