Yankees | Adam Warren set for long relief

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:36:46 -0700

New York Yankees RP Adam Warren is expected to pitch in a long-relief role in the middle innings.

Fantasy Tip: Warren struggled with the Cubs and posted a 5.91 ERA through 35 innings over 29 appearances. His fantasy value is extremely limited given his expected role with the Yankees.

Yankees | Yanks land two big prospects

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:36:52 -0700

The New York Yankees traded RP Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs Monday, July 25, in exchange for SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney and SP Adam Warren. Torres was the centerpiece of the deal and was hitting .275 with nine home runs in 94 games with Class A Myrtle Beach.

Fantasy Tip: Torres, although young at 19, was the Cubs' top prospect not in the majors. He could hit somewhere between 15 to 20 homers at the major league level and also has great speed. He also has impressive hands on defense and could easily be a future All-Star. McKinney has good offensive potential, as well, but was hitting just .252 with a homer and 31 RBI at Class AA Tennessee. He makes consistent contact and has a good understanding of the zone, giving him the ability to hit for a high average. Warren had been a swing man for Chicago and could find his way into New York's rotation if an injury occurs or they trade a starter.

Cubs | Aroldis Chapman deal official

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:34:46 -0700

The Chicago Cubs acquired RP Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees Monday, July 25, according to sources. The Cubs sent SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney, RP Adam Warren and possibly another player. Torres is the centerpiece of the deal and was hitting .275 with nine home runs in 94 games for Class A Myrtle Beach.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is an elite closer that just got even more attractive, as he'll now be closing games for one of the best clubs in all of baseball. Hector Rondon's value takes a big hit, as he's likely the setup man now to Chapman. In New York, Andrew Miller would see a sizeable boost if he's not traded, as he would likely take over closing duties for Chapman. If Miller also leaves town before the deadline, Dellin Betances figures to be next in line. Both relievers are already must-owns in all leagues for their stellar relief ratios.

Yankees | Four players in proposed Chapman deal

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 07:41:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Cubs SS Gleyber Torres, RP Adam Warren and two others are in the proposed deal for New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman. OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are not among them.

Fantasy Tip: If Chapman lands with the Cubs, it's hard to see him setting up for Hector Rondon, who would lose a lot of fantasy luster. Chapman's numbers are stellar as usual, and he's an elite RP in fantasy regardless. The Yankees are expected to wait four or five days to decide whether to move RP Andrew Miller. If Miller stays, he could be in line to return to the closer role. If he is also dealt, Dellin Betances isn't a bad fallback option. Both remain must-owns in any scenario, but Miller could be in line for a big fantasy uptick if he isn't dealt.

Cubs | Joe Nathan joins bullpen

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 12:33:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Joe Nathan (elbow) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Sunday, July 24. The team also optioned SP Adam Warren to Class AAA Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Nathan likely will be used as a setup man for the time being and likely will not receive many save opportunities. He should have some value in NL-only leagues but can be avoided in most other leagues.

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.
