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.

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.

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.

Adam Warren pitched well in Wednesday's no-decision against the Reds, yielding one run on three hits over five innings.

Warren struck out six without walking a batter. Outside of a first-inning solo home run surrendered to Zack Cozart, he kept the scoreboard free and clear of damage. This was Warren's first start of the season. The 28-year-old right-hander has also put in 25 relief appearances. He enters the All-Star break the owner of a 4.11 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 24/14 K/BB ratio across 30 2/3 innings.

Cubs recalled RHP Adam Warren from Triple-A Iowa.

Warren will start for the Cubs on Wednesday afternoon against the Reds. He opened the season in Chicago's bullpen but headed down to Triple-A Iowa in late June to begin stretching out as a starter. The right-hander allowed four earned runs in 8 2/3 innings (two starts) at the Triple-A level.
Wed, Jul 6, 2016 11:58:00 AM

Adam Warren will make a spot start Wednesday against the Reds.

This move was expected as Warren was preparing to start on either Tuesday or Wednesday. It's a wise maneuver by manager Joe Maddon to give his starters an extra day of rest ahead of the All-Star break. The Cubs have used Warren exclusively out of the bullpen this year, though he has made two starts for Triple-A Iowa.

Adam Warren is expected to join the Cubs' rotation as a spot starter Tuesday or Wednesday against the Reds.

Manager Joe Maddon wants to give his starters an extra day of rest heading into the All-Star break. Warren was sent to the minors last week to get stretched out and is scheduled to start Thursday night's game for Triple-A Iowa. Warren owns a mediocre 4.56 ERA in 25 relief outings for the Cubs this year.

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.
Tue, Jun 21, 2016 05:30:00 PM

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.
