TTM Success: Adam Warren
Warren never really got going with the Cubs, so when he was the last piece in the Chapman trade, the Yankees were banking on the fact that bringing him back to more familiar surroundings would help. And it definitely did.
He pitched much better in NY, and this year he's tossed six innings without allowing a hit over three appearances. It's maddening the way Girardi has been using him. I actually wouldn't mind seeing him slot into the rotation, as it's a rare occurrence that a Yankee starter goes more than five innings.
I sent Warren a few cards to spring training, and he was kind enough to return them signed.
