Phelps allows two runs in first minor league rehab start


In his first minor league rehab game with Double-A Trenton, David Phelps allowed two runs on two hits (one homer) and three walks in 3.2 innings. He struck out six and threw 37 of 61 pitches for strikes (61%). Phelps is currently on the DL with a slight forearm strain, and Brian Cashman has confirmed he won’t automatically re-enter the rotation when healthy. His 30-day rehab window expires on August 22nd, but I doubt Phelps will need that much time.

    So assuming he has no setbacks and returns healthy, he will be in the bullpen. Nothing wrong with a 2nd long reliever. But with Hughes struggles, can we assume Phelps/Adam Warren and Hughes switch spots? I think Hughes played well as a reliever. Depending how well he plays could he return as a long relief man? I would like to see Warren get a chance to start. He hardly ever pitches. How often do we see Warren? Once a week?
