RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After a fine 2012 season as a swingman, Phelps missed a big chunk of 2013 with forearm trouble, and it's unclear how much the injury contributed to his relative ineffectiveness even before he went on the disabled list. Phelps had a .324 BABIP against him in 2013, after putting up a .262 mark in 2012. His overall baseline is likely somewhere in between his 2012 and 2013 performances. Depending on how the Yankees' offseason goes, Phelps could get a shot at the rotation for 2014. While he could have some value with wins and strikeouts if he does get to start, don't expect a ton of growth from him.

2013

Phelps was an unsung hero for the Yankees last season, putting up excellent numbers in 11 starts and 22 relief appearances. Phelps doesn't have dominant stuff, but he can get his four-seamer up to 95 mph when he needs to, and he mixes in a good curve and a decent changeup. He may have tried to be a little too fine in his starts last season, walking nearly 3.5 BB/9 after keeping that rate around 2.0 BB/9 in the minors, but he balanced that out by being harder to hit than he had shown previously. Phelps has definitely earned a spot on the Yankees' roster for 2013, but it's unclear if he'll be in the rotation or the bullpen. Whatever role he finds, he's an interesting sleeper for 2013.

2012

Phelps doesn't have the upside of fellow Yankees prospects Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, but his command and control may allow him to beat them to the majors should the Yankees need rotation help.  The 25-year-old has just average velocity on his fastball, but he put up good numbers in Triple-A in 2011, going 6-6 with a 3.19 ERA and 1.317 WHIP last season.  He's far too hittable to achieve much success in the AL East without additional progress with his secondary pitches, but Phelps would become more intriguing if he landed in a situation with a more pitcher-friendly home park.
