News: Phelps is expected to fill Michael Pineda's spot in the rotation while he misses the next 10 games due to suspension, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Impact: Phelps has worked exclusively in long relief this season, but he's been a dependable spot starting option for the Yankees for each of the last two seasons when called upon. Phelps will likely only make one start for Pineda, since the Yankees will be able to skip his second turn during the suspension due to an off day next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Phelps (undisclosed) was removed from Friday's game at Tampa Bay after taking a line drive off his body, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Phelps spelled starter Hiroki Kuroda in the sixth inning and pitched into the seventh, before the liner knocked him from the game. The severity of the injury is unknown, but if Phelps is at all unavailable, Matt Thornton and Adam Warren will likely pick up their workloads in the short term.(RotoWire, )

News: Phelps did not allow a hit and struck out three over 2.1 scoreless innings against the Red Sox on Thursday en route to his first career save. Impact: The right-hander certainly seems to be righting the ship, after giving up three home runs in his first two appearances (3.1 innings). That said, Thursday's save opportunity was more about circumstance, as Shawn Kelley and Adam Warren were both unavailable after pitching three of the previous four days. Phelps will likely continue to fill a long-relief role for the time being.(RotoWire, )
