After his fourth consecutive awful start, the Yankees have demoted veteran pitcher Freddy Garcia to the bullpen, according to Chad Jennings of the Journal News. In corresponding moves, the Yankees promoted starter D.J. Mitchell from Triple-A and demoted Cody Eppley back down to the minors. Mitchell will likely take David Phelps' role in the bullpen as ...
So far this season Freddy Garcia looks too old to get the job done anymore and Phil Hughes looks like he may never be able to do the job. It had Yankees fans waiting for Andy Pettitte and Michael Pineda's return, but with the injury to Pineda the Yankees will have to turn somewhere else ...
The Yankees have a plethora of pitching options at the MLB level and a superfluous amount of "arms in waiting" in Triple-A ready to pitch in the major leagues at the drop of a hat. Fans see this with the impending vacancy in right field, and feel the Yankees should deal from a position of ...
David Phelps, D.J. Mitchell, and Adam Warren were considered long shots to make the team at the beginning of camp. This year we found out why teams bring in so many players to compete for what appears to be so few spots. Just like that, two injuries put Phelps, Mitchell, and Warren at the forefront ...
Things looked pretty set for the Yankees last week, but then Michael Pineda and Cesar Cabral got hurt and things changed a little bit. There were two spots open and a few people vying for them. Dewayne Wise and Jayson Nix were taken out of the picture pretty quickly, cleared waivers, and were sent to Triple-A. The ...
In the search for a longman out of the bullpen, the Yankees have decided to go with David Phelps, according to Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News. This doesn't actually mean that Adam Warren and D.J. Mitchell's chances are completely shot. The Yankees will likely announce later today that lefty Clay Rapada will make the roster, ...
One of the more interesting stories in the minors this season will be the Triple-A starting rotation. David Phelps, Adam Warren, D.J. Mitchell, Manny Banuelos, and Dellin Betances all could begin the year as starters. Manny and Dellin represent high ceiling talents still a year or so away from contributing to the major league team. Phelps, ...
The Yankees have until 5:00 pm on Wednesday to set their roster. 23 spots are locked in as long as nobody gets hurt in this afternoon's game against the Mets. The other two spots are expected to be two spots in the bullpen. The first one likely to go to lefty reliever Clay Rapada, but the ...
It's beginning to look more and more like the Yankees will take lefty Clay Rapada as the 24th guy on the roster and the 25th player will probably end up coming down to a choice between Adam Warren, David Phelps, and D.J. Mitchell. The Yankees broke Hector Noesi into the major leagues that way last season ...
The lineup is set, the rotation is set, but the Yankees have to figure out who will get the final two spots on the roster. So when will we find out who gets the final two spots? Sounds like we'll find out on Wednesday. “I think we’ll probably have discussions over the next few days,” manager ...
