RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Warren has become a very stable late-inning option for the Yankees, quietly making a successful shift from starter to reliever in 2013 and taking a big step forward in his second big league season with an increase in his strikeout rate (23.5% K%) and improved control (7.4% BB%). He also kept the ball in the park more frequently, though it remains to be seen if that was merely the result of a more fortunate HR/FB rate (6.0%, down from 13.2% in 2013) or an actual change in approach. Warren is a rare four-pitch reliever, but he showed more life on his fastball last season and averaged a career-high 94.2 mph on his four-seamer, which could make that pitch more viable for him going forward. Dellin Betances has all of the makings of a closer capable of locking down the ninth inning for the Yankees, but Warren should be a useful part of the bridge in the late innings again in 2015.
Warren was pretty good as a long man for the Yankees in 2013, posting a 3.39 ERA over 77 innings. His component numbers were all around league average (8.9% HR/FB, .311 BABIP), so he doesn't appear to have been particularly lucky. Warren doesn't have any plus offerings, and is a contact pitcher. He could see a few spot starts with the Yankees in 2014, but he seems more likely to fill a similar role to the one he held last season.
Injuries forced the Yankees to turn to Warren for a start midway through the season and he appeared completely overmatched, giving up six earned runs in just 2.1 innings. Warren has put up decent minor league numbers as an innings eater, and he could catch on at some point as a back-end starter in some team's rotation, but he appears unlikely to find a role with the Yankees.
The Yankees made noise about giving Warren a spot start or two in 2011, but with the emergence of Ivan Nova, Warren remained in Triple-A, where he had a decent year, going 6-8 with a 3.60 ERA. Warren can show slightly above average fastball velocity, but his secondary pitches are nothing to write home about, and at age 24 it's hard to see him developing much more than he already has. If Warren has a major league future, it's likely as a fifth starter type, and probably for another team despite the Yankees' rotation woes last season.
