Cubs optioned RHP Adam Warren to Triple-A Iowa.

Warren will make two starts for Iowa and then one for Chicago ahead of the All-Star break. It can hopefully act as a reset for the 28-year-old right-hander, who has a disappointing 4.56 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 25 2/3 innings of relief this season. He was acquired from the Yankees in the Starlin Castro trade.

Adam Warren allowed two earned runs in two innings Sunday in the Cubs' loss to the Diamondbacks.

It wasn't the most ideal Cubs debut for Warren, who surrendered three hits in the bottom of the first inning and wound up throwing only 18 of his 32 pitches for strikes. He is being stretched out as a starter right now in Cubs camp, but the 28-year-old right-hander seems likely to open the 2016 regular season in a long relief role. Warren was acquired from the Yankees in December as part of the Starlin Castro trade.
Mar 6 - 6:53 PM

Cubs and RHP Adam Warren avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.7 million contract.

It's a nice raise for the former Yankee in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Warren held a 3.29 ERA in a swingman role for New York in 2015 and will operate in a similar capacity in 2016 for the Cubbies.
Jan 15 - 1:21 PM

Cubs acquired RHP Adam Warren and a player to be named later from the Yankees in exchange for INF Starlin Castro.

The player to be named is rumored to be Brendan Ryan. Warren has been a valuable swingman for the Yankees over the last four seasons, posting a 3.39 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 147 appearances -- 20 starts. At the moment he looks to be in line for a relief role in Chicago.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Cubs "have been curious" about Adam Warren.

It's possible he could be part of a deal involving Starlin Castro, although it sounds like Sherman is just speculating here. Warren posted a 3.29 ERA over 43 appearances -- 17 starts -- for the Yankees this past season and is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.

Adam Warren tossed six innings of one-run ball in the Yankees' win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Warren walked three but gave up only three hits. And all three hits were singles. The 28-year-old right-hander has been a nice surprise for the Yankees this season, now with a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 101/38 K/BB ratio over 128 1/3 innings. His final regular-season start will come next week against the Red Sox.

Adam Warren yielded three runs in 3 1/3 innings, losing Monday's start to the Blue Jays.

All three runs came around in the first inning on a Jose Bautista single, an Edwin Encarnacion ground out, and a Justin Smoak double. He allowed five hits overall while walking one and striking out five. He had thrown 82 total pitches before being removed in the fourth inning. Warren now has a 3.46 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and a 97/35 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings. He'll take the hill to oppose the White Sox at home in his next start.

Adam Warren went four innings and gave up two runs in a no-decision Tuesday as the Yankees lost to the Rays.

The Rays scored in the first inning on Logan Forsythe's RBI single, and in the second inning on a throwing error by Brian McCann. Warren allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out four in the effort, his first start since June 25. The Yankees will be stretching out Warren in the rotation, and he's ticketed for a start in Toronto against the Blue Jays next. In 119 innings, he has a 3.33 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP and a 92/34 K/BB ratio.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Adam Warren will be stretched out to rejoin the rotation.

The Yankees are looking for alternatives now that Nathan Eovaldi is sidelined with elbow inflammation. Warren posted a solid 3.59 ERA and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings over 14 starts with the Yankees earlier this season. Bryan Mitchell is also a possibility to get stretched out.

The Yankees have moved Adam Warren to the bullpen.

Warren is the odd-man out now that Ivan Nova is back from the disabled list. It's an expected move, though CC Sabathia is probably more deserving to lose his rotation spot. Warren has a solid 3.59 ERA and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings over 14 starts this season.

Adam Warren allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Astros.

Warren was solid again, but his rotation spot remains in jeopardy with Ivan Nova back. The Yankees are using a six-man rotation for now, but it probably won't last, and while CC Sabathia deserves to be bounced, Warren remains the most likely candidate to be dropped, even though he has a nice 3.59 ERA in 14 starts.

Adam Warren pitched brilliantly in Friday's victory over the Tigers, allowing two runs on seven hits over eight strong innings.

Warren racked up seven strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. He allowed a two-run single to Bryan Holaday in the second inning then shut down the Tigers bats the remainder of the evening. The right-hander will carry a 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 50/25 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the hapless Phillies.

Adam Warren allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings during Sunday's win over the Orioles.

In each of his last five starts, Warren lasted into the seventh inning. He couldn't manage that mark against the Orioles on Sunday, as Joe Girardi called to the bullpen with two outs in the fifth inning. Warren's three walks and some creaky control certainly contributed to the early exit, as he threw just 56 of his 92 pitches for strikes. While he might dish out a few too many free passes, Warren's overall 1.25 WHIP and 43/25 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 innings are reasonable enough. He pairs those numbers with a 3.78 ERA and will attempt to keep that ERA from creeping over 4.00 when he pitches against the Tigers in his next start.

Adam Warren pitched well in Saturday's win over the Angels, surrendering two runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Warren was spotted a 6-0 lead after one inning and he pitched well with the cushion. He didn't allow a hit until Erick Aybar reached on an infield single to lead off the fourth inning. Warren loaded the bases with one out in that frame, but induced a double play grounder from David Freese to escape without allowing a run. He was nicked for solo runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but the Angels never mounted a serious assault against the right-hander. With the win, Warren evened his record at 4-4. He carries a 3.64 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 38/22 K/BB ratio over 64 1/3 innings and has pitched into the seventh inning of each of his last five starts. A road start against the Orioles is up next on the schedule.
