Warren is 5-5 with a 3.86 ERA in 15 starts for SWB, though he has just 59 strikeouts in 86 ¹/₃ innings and an ugly 1.46 WHIP. He gets the call ahead of David Phelps, who has excelled in the bullpen for the Yankees.
“Phelps is the guy if stretched out, [then he] would have been a prime candidate,” Cashman said. “Warren is by far the next best for us.”
Treanor said Warren hit 93 mph on Sunday and consistently was throwing 92 mph. He also praised his cutter.
It would have been nice if Manny Banuelos was ready to make his MLB debut right now, but hopefully Warren pitches well. His season line doesn’t give me much hope for that, but he can probably get three or four starts if he pitches well tomorrow.
