Update: Phelps okay after being hit by line drive

By

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.

    This was a huge loss in tonight’s ballgame. Phelps hasn’t given up a run since Toronto. He would have gotten out of the 7th where Thorton and Warren failed to.
