The Chicago Cubs have sent 28-year old righty reliever Adam Warren to AAA. Warren pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Cubs this year and he was 3-1 with a 4.56 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He has given up 22 hits and 18 walks while whiffing 18 batters in his first 25 2/3 innings for the Cubs this year. Warren is being sent to AAA to stretch out and return as a starting pitcher. The Cubs will go with a six man rotation for a couple of weeks after Warren returns to Chicago. The Cubs have called up 28-year old righty reliever Spencer Patton to replace Warren in the pen. Patton pitched in 1 game out of the pen earlier this year for the Cubs and he didn’t get anyone out while allowing 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 run (it was earned). Patton has also pitched in 26 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball this year for the Cubs and he was 0-0 with 8 saves, a 1.04 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He gave up 18 hits and 9 walks while whiffing 42 batters in his first 26 innings in AAA this year. The Cubs hope he pitches like he did in AAA ball this time around.
