Date:

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.
Jul 9 - 11:39 PM

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.
Jul 6 - 5:39 PM

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.
Jul 6 - 11:58 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.
Jul 2 - 4:13 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 6:43 PM

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.
Jun 21 - 5:30 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.
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.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 06:56:00 PM

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.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 10:31:00 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 10:35:00 PM

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.
