Phelps named Fall League Pitcher of the Week

Yankees prospect David Phelps has been named the Arizona Fall League Pitcher of the Week. He won each of his starts last week, steadily building solid numbers after a sloppy first few outings in Arizona.

A 14th-round pick in 2008, Phelps should be on the radar. He had a 3.19 ERA in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, but he was sent to Arizona because an injury limited him to 107.1 innings through 18 outings. He’s in that mix of pitchers — with Adam Warren, D.J. Mitchell, Hector Noesi, etc. — who could compete for a long-relief or back-of-the-rotation job in spring training.

In the Fall League Phelps is 2–2 with a 4.55 ERA and 22 strikeouts against nine walks. He allowed nine runs total in his first three starts, but has allowed just five runs in his four starts since.
