Phelps named Fall League Pitcher of the Week

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 14, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

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.

    Since Jeter and A Rod have no range (amirite?) we need to go with a 4 OF alignment.

    LF: Centipedes
    Short LF: Delmon Young
    CF: Melkman (Granderson strikes out too much to be part of our new high contact alignment. Trade him for #1 starter IPK)
    RF: DeJesus.

    ===========

    LGY,
    NO! NO! NO!! Why trade for the short position if you can just get it by spending money. And better yet, you can get the best short ever to play the game. Cat like reflexes, catching everyone by surprise. Knows just the right time to get involved. Yes im sure you now would like to back track your comment and just insert SIGN MANNY!! Best short/cuttoff guy ever!!

    Ask yourself this question. Were the last 2 W.S. champions offense better than ours? Not even close. Time
    to get a rotation with 3 #1??s. 4 is bad luck. See Philli.

    ————————————————————————-

    Giants offense beat up Cliff Lee and the Cards hit like crazy in the world series. Something we seem unable to to do so I would say we need more or better offensive players way more then pitching

    Yay Phelps :)

    LGY,

    If they sent Prince to the fat farm could he play RF?

  5. SoS November 14th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    blake,
    lol. Or we can put him in right and immediately sign a gap rf(ROVER). With his money of course.

  6. blake November 14th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    Is anyone more smug than David Stern?

  7. blake November 14th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Sos,

    I like that. I think Pujols coukd play LF if they bought him p90x and made him do it over the winter too

  8. blake November 14th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    SI_JonHeyman 10 mins Glad to see there won’t be hard slots (or caps) for draft pick bonuses. Wouldn’t be right considering cespedes may get $30M. #MLB

    I never understood the perception that Stern is somehow a great commissioner. NBA Basketball is a poorly run entity.

    Discount the early starts of David Phelps in the AFL. He like other pitchers use the 1st few outings to experiment with their pitches and build up some arm strength.
    It would be good to see him, Hughes, Noesi, and Warren as early arrivals in Tampa to continue their work and try to make a case for the starting rotation.

  12. blake November 14th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    MJ made David Stern

    if the nba boils down to a media driven stern vs the players fight, who blinks first? my guess is stern. hard to hold a tough line when you represent the 1% of the 1%

    “I never understood the perception that Stern is somehow a great commissioner. NBA Basketball is a poorly run entity.”

    Right place, right time for him. He was ushered in during the NBA “revival” of the 80s with Jordan, Bird, Magic, Ewing, Hakeem, Stockton, etc. then in the 90s with Shaq/Kobe. Now he is also benefiting from these “super teams” and the popularity surge that the sport endures as a result.

    No sport has expanded as much under a commissioner as the NBA did under Stern. Yet that had very little to do with him and more with the climate that the players created. NBA lives and dies with their star players and big markets. It is an unsustainable model that is at the mercy of an exchange that he has no control over. Ironically, owners are fighting against the same thing that made the league what it is today (super teams, stars in big markets, etc.)

  21. blake November 14th, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    “Yet that had very little to do with him and more with the climate that the players created.”

    It was almost entirely Jordan

  22. Tom in N.J. November 14th, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    Kate, thanks for the heads up on Montero.

    The Carousel Center is a quick spin up 81, I think I’ll stop by.

  23. Nick in SF November 14th, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Magic versus Bird
    followed by Michael Jordan
    Stern just took the ride

  24. blake November 14th, 2011 at 6:16 pm
