• John Sickels on David Phelps

    Posted by on May 17th, 2010 · Comments (0)

    Prospect guru John Sickles dropped Yankee farmhand David Phelps’s (RHP, AA-Trenton) name in this morning’s edition of “Morning Notes“.

    One of my favorite pre-season sleepers is Yankees pitching prospect David Phelps.  The Notre Dame product is living up to that tag, going 3-0, 1.60 with a 33/10 K/BB in 34 innings so far for Double-A Trenton, with 23 hits allowed.  He has a solid low-90s fastball, and is making good progress with his slider and changeup according to Yankees sources.  Keep a close eye on  him.

    The references to “Yankees sources” could be alluding to Sickels’s own interview with Yanks SVP Mark Newman or, more likely, a reaffirmation of Newman’s report based on what scouts are talking about around the Eastern League.  Either way, it’s nice to see some of the organization’s mid- and late-round college pitchers advancing and experiencing success.
