David Phelps (elbow) will be shut down for the next two weeks.

That means he'll need at least a week more than that to build his stamina back up, so it will certainly be a longer than minimum stay on the disabled list. "It's devastating," said Phelps. "Like I said last night, this is one of the best stretches I've had in my career. Hopefully rest it, have it calm down, and come back and help this team get to the playoffs." The Yankees haven't decided who will replace Phelps in the rotation.

David Phelps was removed from Sunday's start against the Red Sox after two innings due to right elbow inflammation.

The hits just keep on coming for the Yankees rotation. Phelps was terribly ineffective in this one, allowing five runs on six hits and a pair of walks before departing, but perhaps the injury played a role. He will be reevaluated in New York later in the week, but a trip to the disabled list seems likely.

David Phelps held the Rangers to one run over five innings and earned the win in a rain-shortened game on Wednesday.

The game was called with one out in the bottom of the fifth. The Yankees already had the lead, of course. Phelps allowed five hits -- the only extra-base hit was a triple to Leonys Martin -- without issuing a walk and striking out three. The right-hander hasn't lost since June 7. Now with a 3.77 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and a 86/37 K/BB ratio, Phelps will open up a road series against the Rangers on Monday.

Two of the three runs scored on solo homers from Brayan Pena. Otherwise, Phelps was very effective, allowing six hits and one walk while notching seven strikeouts.

David Phelps was squeezed out of a win due to the Yankees' bullpen after holding the Indians to just two runs over six innings on Thursday.

Once he left the game, Matt Thornton and Jim Miller combined to allow seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Phelps heads into the All-Star break with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 76/36 K/BB ratio.

He gave up just three hits and two walks on the day to go along with three strikeouts. Phelps has a 4.03 ERA and 55/26 K/BB ratio in 71 1/3 innings over 12 starts with the Yankees this season. He has appeal as a spot-start option in mixed fantasy leagues.
