Found July 05, 2012 on Bronx Pinstripes:

Yankees optioned RHP David Phelps to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Darnell McDonald on the active roster. Phelps was impressive in a spot start Wednesday against the Rays and could find himself back in the Yankees’ rotation after the All-Star break.  We will most definitely see Phelps back up sooner than later.  Don’t be surprised if he takes Freddy Garcia’s rotation spot after he is stretched out.

The move gives the Yankees some outfield depth while left fielder Brett Gardner rehabs his elbow that has kept him out much of this season. McDonald is expected to join the Yanks in Boston on Friday. In order to make room for McDonald, the Yankees designated Chris Schwinden for assignment...
