Yankee's Prospect Profile: Adam Warren

Allen LoppCorrespondent IAugust 12, 2009

Adam Warren is a 21-year-old right-handed starting pitcher who currently pitches for the Yankees' Class A Short-Season Affiliate in Staten Island.

He is 6'1" and originates from New Bern, North Carolina.

He recently graduated from UNC Chapel Hill and was selected in the fourth round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.

According to Baseball America he is the 10th best player in the State of North Carolina.

Warren was one of the better collegiate pitchers this past season and was also very good in the College World Series.

He can consistently throw his fastball at 92 MPH and he touched 96 MPH in a recent outing. He also throws a good curveball that the pitching coaches have been tweaking, along with some minor mechanical issues. He also throws a two-seam fastball, a cutter, and an above average change-up.

He is currently dominating the New York-Penn League with a 4-1 W-L record, a 0.96 ERA, and 0.90 WHIP.

He has 28 strikeouts and three walks in 37.2 innings and his batting average against is .230

He has already shown that he has complete control on the mound, he as thrown 31 consecutive scoreless innings.

His pitching style reminds me of Pedro Martinez, but his minor league statistics remind me of a John Lannan.

His estimated time of arrival Would be at the earliest 2011 and no later then 2013.
