Update: Yankees activate David Phelps


Sunday: Phelps has indeed been activated. He threw a two-inning simulated game on Thursday, so at least he had some kind of tune-up appearance under his belt. Derek Jeter was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear a 40-man roster spot.

Saturday: Via Dan Barbarisi: The Yankees will activate David Phelps off the 60-day DL prior to Saturday’s game to help their, uh, disheveled bullpen. Last week we heard Phelps had just started playing catch and was still a few days away from throwing in the bullpen. He’s been out with two forearm strains since early-July. There is pretty much zero chance Phelps is big league ready. Desperation is a stinky cologne.

      “You know the way you smell when you first come home from the beach? Well, I want to make a cologne that captures the essence of that smell”

        This is weird. We’re not a Kramer divided against itself. We’re a Kramer united with each other.

        This will go down in the annals of internet history as just plain weird.
