by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps threw 25 pitches, all fastballs and changeups, in a bullpen session Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Phelps is scheduled to throw a 35-pitch session Friday in which he'll use all his pitches. He's been out since early August due to elbow inflammation, and the Yankees plan to bring him back as a reliever.


David Phelps to make return as reliever


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps will make his return to the club as a member of the bullpen, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Phelps, who is working his way back from a right elbow injury, is still in the process of beginning to throw. At this point, there is no timetable for his return to the team, but there is not enough time left in the season for him to rehab and return as a starter.

"I think at this stage, we're going day by day," Phelps said. "We'll hopefully amp it up when we get through this week. I took two weeks off, it's not like I'll be on the mound this weekend."


David Phelps could return as a reliever


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps could return as a reliever, according to the Wall Street Journal

Moving Phelps to the bullpen would allow him to return to action sooner than expected since he wouldn't have to build up his arm strength. Phelps has a 4.24 ERA over 108 1/3 innings.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps is expected to begin throwing during the team's upcoming home stand, the first time he will do so since going on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Elbow inflammation not a new issue for David Phelps


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after Sunday's game that pitcher David Phelps has been dealing with elbow inflammation for several starts over the past three or four weeks, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Phelps underwent an MRI a few weeks ago which showed no ligament damage. While he may miss his next start after lasting just two innings Sunday, Girardi isn't worried about the pitcher's long-term health.


David Phelps exits game Sunday with elbow inflammation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps was removed from Sunday's start against the Red Sox after just two innings due to right elbow inflammation, the team announced.

Phelps gave up five earned runs on six hits and two walks, including one home run, but he didn't factor into the decision in the high-scoring game. He owns a 4.24 ERA and 89:40 K:BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. Phelps will be re-evaluated in New York during the upcoming week.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last four starts covering 23 1/3 innings, Phelps has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 3.89 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over 106 1/3 innings of work this season. He will look to bounce back Sunday at Fenway Field against the Red Sox.

David Phelps picks up rain-shortened win


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps picked up a rain-shortened win Wednesday against the Rangers.

Phelps allowed one run on five hits over five innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks. Aside from the second, Phelps put at least one batter on base each inning. He ran into some trouble in the top of the third, but was able to induce a double-play to end the threat. That double-play did allow the only run to score against Phelps.

With the win, Phelps improved to 5-4 on the year. His next start will come against the Rangers.


David Phelps looks sharp in first start after the break


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps looked sharp in his first start after the break, posting a quality start and picking up his fourth win of the season Friday night against the Reds. The right-hander yielded three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and one walk while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings of a 4-3 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 25 innings, Phelps has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 3.87 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 95 1/3 innings of work. He will make his second start after the All-Star break on Wednesday at home against Texas.


Yankees announce first three starters after ASG


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Yankees manager announced part of his post-break pitching plans on Sunday, MLB.com reports.

David Phelps looks sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps turned in a quality start, but was unable to factor into the decision Thursday night against the Indians in Cleveland. The right-hander yielded two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings of a 9-3 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Phelps has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 3.94 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 89 innings of work. The Yankees have yet to map out their pitching plans for after the All-Star break.

David Phelps pitches seven one-run innings Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps wasn't a factor in the decision Saturday after giving up one earned run on three hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 2-1 loss to the Twins.

Phelps was able to hold the Twins scoreless through sixth innings before serving up a home run to lead off the seventh. It's his fourth straight start giving up at least one home run, and it unfortunately cost him what would have been his fourth win. Phelps owns a 4.01 ERA and 71:33 K:BB ratio in 83 innings. He's scheduled to face the Indians Thursday.


David Phelps surrenders two solo home runs Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps wasn't a factor in Monday's decision after giving up two earned runs on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3, 12-inning loss to the Rays.

Phelps gave up a solo home run in the first inning and another solo shot in the third, but he was otherwise able to keep the Rays off the board. It was a solid rebound effort after surrendering six earned runs in his previous start. Phelps owns a 4.26 ERA and 68:31 K:BB ratio in 76 innings. He's scheduled to face the Twins Saturday.


David Phelps hit hard in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps struggled through his worst start in weeks Tuesday, in a 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

Phelps settled for a no-decision despite the loss, as the bullpen faltered late in the loss. Nonetheless, he did little to contribute to the cause himself, allowing six runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings of work. He struck out seven on 94 pitches in the no-decision.

Phelps has been a bit up-and-down recently, but was coming off a two-start stretch that saw him allow just two runs over 13 2/3 innings. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Monday against the Rays. Phelps is 3-4 with a 4.35 ERA on the season. 


David Phelps reaches one game under .500 Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps spun a quality start Thursday night, leading his team to a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays. The right-hander yielded only two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven innings, improving to 3-4 on the year.

Phelps owns a 4.13 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over 65 1/3 innings of work this season. He will try to do all over again Tuesday night in Toronto.

David Phelps blanks Oakland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps put together a dominant performance on Friday against the A's in Oakland, picking up his second win of the season. The right-hander permitted two hits and three walks while striking out four over 6 2/3 innings of a 7-0 victory.

Phelps lowered his ERA from 4.88 to 4.32 on the year. He's posted a 1.42 WHIP and 50:25 K:BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings. He will make his next start Thursday at home against Toronto.

Yankees tweak rotation following Monday's postponement


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) With Monday's contest between the Yankees and Royals postponed because of inclement weather, manager Joe Girardi will give his starting rotation an extra day of rest, the Star-Ledger reports.

Vidal Nuno, who was scheduled to pitch Monday, will take the mound for the opener in Seattle Tuesday. Masahiro Tanaka and Chase Whitley will round out the series in Seattle. David Phelps will open a weekend set in Oakland, followed by Hiroki Kuroda on Saturday and Nuno on Sunday.

David Phelps loses fourth straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps dropped his fourth decision in a row Saturday, in an 8-4 loss to the Royals.

Phelps struggled for the second outing in a row, as he failed to finish six innings for the first time in four starts. The Royals jumped on him for seven runs in 5 2/3 innings, on 10 hits and a pair of walks. Phelps struck out four batters in the start, on 93 pitches.

Phelps is now 1-4 on the season, and has seen his ERA rise during each of his four consecutive losses. It now stands at 4.88 in 51 2/3 innings heading into his next outing, set for Thursday in Seattle. 


David Phelps gets rocked in loss to M's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps took a step back on Monday, coughing up six runs on six hits and three walks and four strikeouts in six innings of a 10-2 defeat to the Mariners.

Phelps tossed 92 pitches, 50 were strikes. Over his last three starts covering 19 innings, Phelps has allowed 11 earned runs. He will look to get back on track Saturday at Kansas City.

David Phelps a victim of poor run support


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps has fared pretty well since joining the rotation. He has a 3.18 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings in five May starts.

Though, a 1-2 record and 1.41 WHIP over that span has certainly dampened some of the enthusiasm about Phelps' time in the rotation. But I bet Fantasy owners would be more excited about Phelps' outlook if he had a few more wins under his belt.

The biggest problem for Phelps has been run support. In his five starts, the Yankees are averaging 3.0 runs per game. It's not surprising seeing some of the pitchers they have opposed in Phelps' starts have included Lance Lynn, Chris Sale, Matt Garza and Jered Weaver. 

When Michael Pineda returns from the disabled list, either Phelps, Vidal Nuno or Chase Whitley could be removed from the rotation. Even when CC Sabathia returns later this season, there's a chance Phelps could remain in the rotation as the fifth starter.

He definitely needs to improve in some areas, particularly not giving up as many hits, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Phelps as a flier in deep formats, particularly in leagues where he has relief-pitcher eligibility.


David Phelps takes loss Tuesday vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps with hit with a loss Tuesday, giving up five runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 6-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Phelps (1-2) saw the first run of the game score on a ground-rule double in the third inning, and three more runs were put on the board on a pair of errors. He also gave up a solo home run in the fifth. Phelps owns a 3.38 ERA and 38:17 K:BB ratio in 40 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mariners Monday.


Special start for David Phelps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps grew up a diehard Cardinals fan 15 minutes from Busch Stadium, making Tuesday's start in St. Louis a special one. "You grow up thinking about playing on this field," he told ESPN.com.

Phelps (1-1, 3.18 ERA) will have 25 relatives and friends in the crown when he pitches against the Cardinals. This will be his first appearance against his hometown team.


David Phelps on wrong side of pitcher's duel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Yankees pitcher David Phelps put together his finest start of the season Thursday, but was outpitched in a 3-2 loss to the White Sox.

Phelps had the bad luck of squaring off against a dominant Chris Sale, but still pitched very well on his own merits. He allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings of work, while walking just one batter. He also struck out a season-high eight batters on 104 pitches, but had to settle for his first loss as the Yankees fell.

Phelps has now started four games for the Yankees, posting a 2.82 ERA in 22 1/3 innings in that span. He will try to keep the good times going in his next start, set for Tuesday in St. Louis.
