Found July 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: David Phelps
TEAMS: New York Yankees
It is no secret that the New York Yankees' 2013 disabled list has opened and closed like an accordion in concert, but at least starting pitcher David Phelps will very likely avoid it. Phelps strained his right forearm a few days ago, but, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch and Josh Vitale, he will miss only one start. Phelps will take a few more days off and begin throwing on Monday. July 15. That takes him through the All-Star break, giving him extra time to recover before having to pitch again. Phelps expressed his contentment with the decision to miss one start: "So that's obviously the biggest relief, when you're talking about your arm. It's just a small strain in my forearm. With the All-Star break coming up, it was an easy decision. It's one start, and I'll get back out and be ready to go." Phelps said that he feels no pain when he throws, and ice has worked as the best treatment. Overall, Phelps is 6-5 with a 5.01 ERA in his second season, but since he can pitch as both a starter and a reliever, he adds value to the Yankees' staff. With the myriad of Yankee injuries, they can not afford to start losing more arms. The upcoming All-Star break may be just what Phelps needs to recover and prepare for a strong second half.
