Cubs option Warren to Triple-A to prepare for start

The Chicago Cubs have optioned right-hander Adam Warren to Triple-A Iowa 
to prepare him for a major league start.
The Cubs also placed lefty Clayton Richard on the 15-day disabled list 
because of a blister on his left middle finger, selected left-hander Gerardo 
Concepcion's contract and recalled righty Spencer Patton from Iowa before 
Tuesday's game against St. Louis.
Warren is 3-1 with a 4.56 ERA in 25 games. He made 17 starts and 43 
appearances for the New York Yankees last season.
The Cubs plan to have him start two minor-league games and make one for 
them before the All-Star break. Warren might make another start after that.
Chicago will have played 24 consecutive days before the break. Stretching 
Warren will give the starters an extra day of rest.
