Who’s starting Thursday? David Phelps, maybe
The Yankees’ starter for Thursday is still TBA, as Joe Girardi and his staff decide between Hector Noesi and David Phelps, who was scratched from his scheduled start on Monday as a backup option.
Here’s Girardi’s scouting report on Phelps:
“He’s pitched well down in Triple-A. He’s a guy that has a number of different pitches that you can go to, a control guy that’s been a groundball guy. He holds runners.”
Girardi continued: “Our decision is, do we possibly go with him or Noesi? I’m worried more about our bullpen right now, making sure we’re covered there. We may not make the decision until after Wednesday night.”
