Update: Phelps okay after being hit by line driveBy
11:14pm: Phelps is fine, Joe Girardi confirmed after the game. I imagine he’s a little sore, but he’s not actually injured.
10:03pm: David Phelps left tonight’s game after being hit by a line drive in the right side, pretty much right in the ribs. Matt Thornton was brought in to replace him and it appears it was to get the left-on-left matchup. Phelps might have been coming out of the game anyway. For what it’s worth, he remained in the dugout after exiting. Seems like he is okay, but it was a pretty good shot. Stay tuned for an update.
