David Phelps: I prefer to start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Yankees right-hander David Phelps will be disappointed if he doesn't earn a spot in the starting rotation out of spring training, he told the New York Post.

Phelps will accept a bullpen role, but that is not his focus. "I do want to start," he said.

The 27-year-old performed in both capacities last season. He finished 6-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 22 games, including 12 starts. His season came to a halt when he sustained a flexor strain in his right forearm.
