Cubs | Adam Warren solid in spot start

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 16:19:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP/RP Adam Warren pitched pretty effectively in a spot start Wednesday, July 6, against the Cincinnati Reds. The right-hander worked five innings, allowing only one run on five hits, including a solo homer. He also struck out six and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: Warren has exhibited flashes of potential before in a starting role, specifically during his time with the New York Yankees, but unfortunately for him, the Cubs already have a set rotation. As a result, owners don't need to make much of this performance unless an injury creates a vacancy on Chicago's pitching staff.

Cubs | Adam Warren pegged for start vs. Reds

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:53:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Adam Warren is expected to start against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, July 5, or Wednesday, July 6, as long as he emerges from his start for Class AAA Iowa smoothly Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Warren is being stretched out to provide the Cubs rotation a breather leading into the All-Star break. If all goes as planned, it will be a spot start, so view Warren as a viable one-and-done option in all fantasy formats for his upcoming start. As the sixth man in the rotation, though, Warren is a hurler to watch in all fantasy leagues, as he would likely join the rotation in the case of an injury to a Chicago starter, and starting for the best team in baseball has inherent value.

Cubs | Adam Warren starting for Iowa Thursday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:08:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Adam Warren is starting for Class AAA Iowa Thursday, June 30, and then he is expected to make an upcoming spot start for Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: Warren's spot start is being employed to provide a breather for the Chicago rotation, as the team is in the midst of a busy schedule with 24 games in 24 days leading into the All-Star break. In deep mixed and NL-only leagues, Warren is a potential streaming option given he's going to start for the best team in baseball. Just note, barring an injury, he is unlikely to start more than a game or two. Stay tuned for updates.

Cubs | Chicago's rotation competition

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 12:45:01 -0800

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel, who battled through a calf injury and posted a 5.10 ERA in the second half, isn't a lock for the starting rotation after the additions of SPs John Lackey and Adam Warren. Hammel also had a 14.55 ERA in two playoff starts. The Cubs are also paying Hammel $9 million in 2016, and he did have a 2.86 first-half ERA.

SP Kyle Hendricks may be fighting for a job as the No. 5 starter. "Those things will work out," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "We have a lot of guys that can start in the big leagues and I'm sure a lot of those guys will make starts for the Cubs next year." SPs Trevor Cahill, Travis Wood and Clayton Richard are also vying for rotation jobs this spring, but none are likely to beat out both Hendricks and Warren.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey and Hammel should have rotation spots locked up, with Warren on the outside looking in. Lackey is a vet that will see correction to his ERA, but he remains a viable late-round option to round out your staff. Hammel and Kendricks are speculative grabs in deep mixed affairs.

Cubs | Chicago lands Adam Warren in trade

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 17:10:14 -0800

The Chicago Cubs acquired SP Adam Warren and SS Brendan Ryan from the New York Yankees Tuesday, Dec. 8, in exchange for SS Starlin Castro.

Fantasy Tip: The signing of Ben Zobrist in Chicago clearly spurred this move. Now the Cubs have more flexibility with Zobrist at either second base or left field. Javier Baez could also be on the trade block, and his fantasy value is in flux right now without a clear path to consistent playing time. Warren will likely be a swing man for the Cubs in either a starting role or as a long reliever. He doesn't carry much fantasy value but could be a cheap matchup play on FantasyScore if he sees time in a starting role. Ryan can be ignored everywhere.

Yankees | Starlin Castro traded to Yanks

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 17:04:59 -0800

The New York Yankees agreed to acquire 2B/SS Starlin Castro from the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, Dec. 8, in exchange for SP Adam Warren and a player to be named, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has a change of scenery now and will be the everyday second baseman in 2016, pushing Rob Refsnyder and Dustin Ackley to utility roles. Castro goes to another hitter-friendly environment, and he could thrive back in a starting role for the Yanks. He's a fine target in the mid to late rounds of shallow mixed leagues as a sleeper candidate.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi unlikely to return

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 16:59:37 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is unlikely to pitch again in the regular season because of inflammation in his right elbow, according to general manager Brian Cashman. An MRI exam showed no structural damage, though, according to Cashman. Eovaldi received a platelet-rich plasma injection and doctors ordered him to shut everything down for two weeks. A throwing program is expected to take another two weeks after that. Even if Eovaldi returns this year, it might not be as a starter. Eovaldi said the elbow pain he has now is different from the elbow soreness he had when he underwent Tommy John surgery in high school. SP Adam Warren will return to the starting rotation to replace Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: You should drop Eovaldi in redraft leagues if you own him. Warren pitched well earlier this year in the New York rotation, and he's one to consider adding if you need to rotation help down the stretch in AL-only leagues. He'll be cheap on FantasyScore but is only a sleeper option in the right matchup as your second pitcher.

Yankees | Michael Pineda out until September

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:58:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) will be out until at least September with his right forearm strain, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Pineda is 9-7 with a 3.97 ERA on the season and went on the disabled list last week. It's unlikely that the Yankees will stretch out P Adam Warren for the rotation, according to manager Joe Girardi. Warren has been a reliever for more than a month, so Girardi thinks Warren can only throw around 50 pitches in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be retained in all formats, as he can still contribute to a fantasy pitching staff for the final month of the season. Luis Severino, the team's top pitching prospect, is entering the rotation in Pineda's start and will make his debut tomorrow against the Boston Red Sox. There's a lot to like about Severino, but using him immediately on FantasyScore would be a bold move.

Yankees | Yanks trying to upgrade pitching

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:24:24 -0700

New York Yankees SPs Adam Warren, Luis Severino and Bryan Mitchell are unlikely to be used to fill in in the starting rotation with SP Michael Pineda (forearm) sidelined. The Yankees continue to monitor the starting pitcher market as the trade deadline approaches.

Fantasy Tip: Severino, the club's top minor league pitching prospect, easily has the most upside of this trio and should already be stashed in dynasty and keeper leagues. If he does come up and enter the rotation for the Yanks, he'll surely be popular on the waiver wire in the rest of traditional leagues.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi to start Wednesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 06:15:32 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi will start Wednesday, July 1, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. SP Adam Warren has been shifted to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Eovadi ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has a 4.81 ERA and isn't much of an option on FantasyScore right now.
