Around the Empire: Yankees news - 12/10/15

Replacing Adam Warren, thoughts on the Justin Wilson trade, and more.

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports | Ryan Hatch: While Adam Warren is no longer a Yankee, fans should not forget just how valuable he was to the team over the past few seasons.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: Warren served one big role in New York - rotation safety net.  Now they'll need someone else who they can plug in and out of the rotation when injuries inevitably strike next season.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Taking a deeper look at the two prospects the Yankees got back from Detroit in exchange for reliever Justin Wilson.

FanGraphs | August Fagerstrom: The Starlin Castro trade simply made a lot of sense for both the Cubs and the Yankees, given the Cubs' bullpen and back-of-the-rotation concerns and the Yankees' lack of depth up the middle.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Why trading Andrew Miller now makes a lot of sense - it lets the Yankees maximize his value, get younger, and also hold onto their top prospects.
