"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."
"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."
Warren entered with a two-run lead, and managed to shut the door. He did not allow a hit or a walk during the appearce, but did notch three strikeouts. It was Warren's third save of the season.
Warren (2-5) was able to retire the final batter in the top of the seventh before the Yankees took a lead in the bottom half of the inning. He then pitched a scoreless eighth and saw the offense extend the lead in the bottom of the eighth. Warren owns a 3.20 ERA and 52:20 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings.
Warren permitted a walkoff run-scoring single to Nick Hundley in the 10th inning. He was charged with one run on two hits and no walks while striking out one over just one-third of an inning. He owns a 2.79 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 48 1/3 innings of relief.
"You can look at (Saturday’s) game and say he gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings and it could’ve been three (one run was unearned) and all of a sudden it doesn’t look so bad," Girardi said, per The Star-Ledger. "Yeah, he gave up three homers. To me, for him it’s keep the ball in the ballpark and getting some quick out. He’ll continue to work at it."
"There are two things you have to think about if you decide to make him a starter," Girardi said of Warren. "How do you build him up because it’s going to take a while and you’ll probably have one of your starting pitchers build up (off the DL) by then.
"Now, you’re taking an extremely important component of your bullpen away. So, in a sense, you’re robbing Peter to pay Paul. And where Warren has been able to help us usually twice out of every five days, you’re only going to get one start every five days. He has been extremely important to the success of the bullpen."
