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.
Mar 2 - 9:17 PM

Adam Warren retired all six Phillies he faced in his start Saturday.

Warren seems more likely to open the season as a middle reliever than as a starter, but he'll make sense at the end of AL-only drafts. He could vulture several wins while often coming into games a run or two down.
Feb 25 - 4:08 PM

Yankees and RHP Adam Warren avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.29 million contract.

Warren was arbitration-eligible for the second time. The right-hander held a 4.68 ERA across 58 appearances last season for the Cubs and Yankees.
Jan 13 - 5:18 PM

Yankees acquired RHP Adam Warren, SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

Warren is returning to the Bronx after a mostly disappointing half-year stay on the north side of Chicago. The 28-year-old right-hander holds a 5.91 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 27/19 K/BB ratio in 35 innings (one start, 28 relief appearances) this season. He could move into the starting rotation with the Yankees if trades this week open up a vacancy. Initially he will probably work in mid-relief.

Cubs optioned RHP Adam Warren to Triple-A Iowa.

Warren has disappointed for the Cubs this season with a 5.91 ERA and 27/19 K/BB ratio over 35 innings. Joe Nathan has assumed his spot in the bullpen.
Sun, Jul 24, 2016 11:24:00 AM

Adam Warren was slammed for seven runs in two innings in a nightmare appearance versus the Pirates on Saturday.

He was literally slammed, giving up a grand slam to rookie Josh Bell. The seven runs caused Warren's ERA to swell to 5.79 on the season. He was recently recalled from the minors and might be headed back down soon.
