|X-ray negative on David Phelps's forearm|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/24/13) X-rays of the forearm of Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps were negative, and his injury has been classified as a forearm contusion, the team announced Friday.
Phelps may be able to make his next start Wednesday depending on how the forearm feels in the next few days. He's 3-2 with a 3.96 ERA and 49:18 K:BB ratio.
|David Phelps gets win but leaves with injury|

(5/24/13) Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps earned his third win of the season Friday against the Rays, allowing four earned runs on six hits and no walks in 7 2/3 innings, while striking out three. But Phelps was forced to leave the game after getting hit on the right forearm by a line drive in the eighth inning.
It was a costly win for the Yankees, who also lost Curtis Granderson to a fractured finger in the game. Phelps, who has a 3.96 ERA, is in line to face the Mets at home Wednesday depending on the severity of the injury. The Yankees sent him for precautionary X-rays, but manager Joe Girardi told reporters after the game he doesn't think the injury is serious.
|David Phelps not getting the proper respect|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/24/13) Yankees pitcher David Phelps is one of the most-added players in our leagues, seeing his ownership jump from 31 percent to 52 percent. But even that level of ownership is a little low for a pitcher who has produced a 1.83 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his last three starts.
Phelps' overall 3.83 ERA is high because of the 10 runs he gave up in April as a reliever. But Phelps came up through the Yankees' system as a starter, putting together a 2.51 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 515 1/3 innings pitched. Of his 91 minor league appearances, 90 were starts. It's tough to put this out there without sounding hyperbolic, but if you liked Kris Medlen last year, it's hard to see why you wouldn't like Phelps.
You won't get a ton of strikeouts, but Phelps should provide some low ratios, and gives Points leaguers a starter all dressed up as an RP.
|David Phelps phenomenal in victory|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Yankees starter David Phelps had a fine performance on Saturday at home against the Blue Jays.
Phelps earned the win, his first as a starter, to improve to 2-2 on the year. He allowed just one earned run in the fourth inning on a Colby Rasmus single. Phelps gave up six hits and walked three over seven solid innings and 113 pitches.
The starter, who struck out eight batters and lowered his ERA to 3.83, is scheduled to make his next outing Friday at Tampa Bay.
Phelps lost his last time out, but has now allowed just two earned runs over his last two outings spanning 13 2/3 innings with 15 Ks.
|David Phelps on wrong end of 1-0 decision|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps made just one key mistake in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Indians, but it was enough to send him to the loss since Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson tossed a complete-game shutout in a 1-0 win for Cleveland.
"I didn’t really have fastball command at all, and it showed," Phelps said, per ESPN. "It was a battle out there. They did a good job sitting on pitches and they made me work."
The only run Cleveland scored off Phelps (1-2) was on Jason Kipnis' solo home run in the first inning. Phelps allowed four hits and five walks in 6 2/3 innings, while striking out seven. He lowered his ERA from 5.02 to 4.33.
"My changeup was really good again today," Phelps said. "A lot of behind-in-the-count, off-speed pitches that we were getting ground balls or pop-ups on. Those times when I was ahead in the count, we were putting guys away early. The guys made plays behind me. I was pretty lucky today -- I walked five guys and was still out there in the seventh inning."
Phelps, who is winless in three starts this season, is expected to be back on the hill Saturday against the Blue Jays. Phelps is 1-0 with a 5.14 ERA in two relief appearances against Toronto this season.
|There's not much more that David Phelps can do to earn a spot in the rotation for 2013 -- he looks to simply be a victim of a numbers game. The 26 year-old parlayed a 2.51 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in over 500 minor league innings into a 3.34 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 33 games (11 starts) in his 2012 rookie campaign. The good news here is that if Phelps grabs a rotation spot this season -- whether through injury or ineffectiveness from the rotation, which both seem likely, given the old and oft-injured rotation -- he will have relief pitcher eligibility in most formats, so his owners will eventually see a return on value. For drafts, though, Phelps is best left to AL-only leagues as a ratio-lowering long reliever. His real value will come later in the season, when he pitches his way into the rotation.
