Right-handed reliever Adam Warren has agreed to a minor league deal with the Yankees, Ken Rosenthal reports.

Warren, 32, began his big-league career with the Bombers in 2012 after being selected in the fourth round out of the University of North Carolina in the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft.
After pitching with San Diego in 2019, Warren underwent Tommy John surgery in September and could miss all of 2020.
Mark Feinsand reports Warren's deal is for two years, allowing him to rehab this coming season with eyes on a 2021 return.
In 246 career appearances with the Yankees, Warren has gone 20-20 with a 3.18 ERA plus 361 strikeouts and 132 walks across 407 innings.
Warren's ERA when pitching for any team other than the Yankees is nearly a full two runs (5.17) above his career mark for New York, and he'll be hoping he can return to that form after his TJ recovery.
In December 2015, Warren was traded to the Cubs along with Brendan Ryan in exchange for infielder Starlin Castro. Then in 2016, Warren returned to the Yankees along with Gleyber Torres, Billy McKinney and Rashad Crawford in the deal for Aroldis Chapman.
Stay tuned for all the latest news and developments this hot stove season as the Yankees continue to gear up for the 2020 season.
