David Phelps (4-4, 3.87 ERA) will go up against The Yu Darvish (9-5, 2.88 ERA) in the third game against Texas. Phelps started his second half strong, throwing 98 pitches through 6 1/3 innings to hold the Reds to three runs on six hits. He tied his season high seven Ks and hasn’t pitched fewer than six innings in all of July. “He has kind of gone unnoticed,” Joe Girardi said...
Three cities and nine games later, the New York Yankees end their road trip 5-4.
Starting out the road trip in Kansas City, the Yankees lost two out of three games. Then a confidence-boosting sweep in Seattle against the Mariners left the team with hopeful optimism.

The Yankees exhibited some fight once but at least two fights were needed tonight.
After a scoreless first inning, David Phelps got hit around in the second. Designated hitter Billy Butler started the second with a double to left field. Left fielder Alex Gordon would follow with a double of his own, scoring Butler. A pair of singles after...
By now it seems that Michael Pineda winning the fifth spot in the rotation is simply a formality. But Pineda’s emergence as the final rotation member has emphatically been a result of his stellar work, and not an indictment of David Phelps’ work.
Indeed, Phelps – who many thought would win the job – has exceeded expectations. But it still looks like he’ll come up...
I'm not sure there's any good way to look at yesterday's game. Every positive was countered by a horrible negative. The Yankees lost 8-4 to the Blue Jays--the AL East's last place team. I guess the one good thing is that it was only game #17 and the Yankees are still going strong in the AL East (2nd place). You can say Nova kept the team in the game until manager...
Does anyone else find Yankees pitching prospect David Phelps’ story eerily familiar?
Phil Hughes; April 29, 2008 at Yankee Stadium.
Getting tossed around like a rag doll between the rotation, bullpen and minors all season.
Not be allotted the chance to settle into a roll.
Pre-set pitching/innings limit.
Getting stretched multiple times as a starter.
Excuse me, as the above...
The New York Yankeesgot there second win of the 2012 season, but it was far from pretty as leaving 12 runners on base is just not going to cut it.
I could easily rant about all the Yankees missed opportunities in the 5-hour, 12-inning win vs. the Orioles but I was so impressed by someone not named Derek Jeter.
And that would be pitcher David Phelps, who has thrown 3 innings...
