Warren is planning to approach 2016 as a starter, The Westchester Journal News reports. Warren entered spring training in 2015 as a starter and ultimately ended up making 26 of his 43 appearances as a reliever. He was very productive when working out of the rotation, but the Yankees already appear to have a surplus of arms vying for a rotation spot, so at this point it's too early to know what his role will shake out to be.
Yankees pitcher Adam Warren picked up his seventh win of the season Saturday, allowing just one run on three hits and three walks over six innings while striking out four. His strong outing allowed the Yankees to keep pace with the Blue Jays in the AL East, and it's his first qaulity start in three outings since rejoining the rotation. Warren is scheduled for one final turn on the mound, at home against the Red Sox on Thursday.
Yankees pitcher Adam Warren gave up two runs on six hits while striking out four Tuesday against the Rays. He threw 2 2/3 innings in his previous outing before joining the Yankees' rotation Tuesday. The Yankees do not need Warren to stick in the rotation going forward, so he will likely serve as a swing man/long reliever over the rest of the season.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he may "probably" move the team's rotation around, starting Masahiro Tanaka one day early and then sending out Adam Warren on Monday or Tuesday, per LoHud.com. Tanaka will face the Blue Jays in a key series, while Warren was stretched out Wednesday to prepare him for the upcoming start.
Despite the lop-sided score, Yankees pitcher Adam Warren recorded his first save of the season in Tuesday's 21-5 thrashing of the Rangers. Warren pitched the final three innings of the game, which credits him with the save regardless of the score. Warren, who was ousted from the rotation in late June, pitched three perfect innings on Tuesday. He now has five saves in his four-year career with the Yankees.
