Phelps (oblique strain) expects to only miss a couple starts on the DL, the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with a strained oblique that he apparently injured while taking batting practice Tuesday. Phelps said he hopes to resume throwing in four days. If he does indeed only miss two starts, he could come off the DL to start Sept. 11 against the Dodgers.

Phelps struggled on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on two hits and three walks over 3.2 innings against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins ended up pulling out the victory, but there was little to like from Phelps aside from the six strikeouts.

Over five starts he's posted a strong 2.22 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with a 32:10 K:BB ratio over 24.1 innings pitched. Overall , Phelps holds a stellar 2.52 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 78.2 innings comprising the five starts and 50 relief appearances. Phelps will make his next start Wednesday in New York against the Mets.

Phelps (7-6) fired six scoreless innings of two-hit ball against the Pirates in Saturday's 3-1 victory, walking two and striking out a season-high nine.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty was outstanding Saturday, with almost a quarter of his 59 strikes coming on swings-and-misses. The 29-year-old has been solid since assuming a starting role earlier in August, and has 17 whiffs over his last 11.1 innings. Phelps will look to extend his current two-start winning streak when he takes on the Padres next Friday.

Phelps (6-6) held the Reds to two runs on four hits and a walk while racking up eight strikeouts over 5.1 innings in Monday's road win.

EDGE Analysis

David added to what has already been a successful athletic fortnight for the Phelps name, taking advantage of a favorable matchup to notch his first win since being reinserted into the rotation last week. He reached 90 pitches for the second straight performance, but capped out right at that mark as has been the case throughout his career. Saturday's road tilt with the Pirates should be a good test of the 29-year-old's ability to provide consistent value as a stater.

Phelps (5-6) pitched five strong innings, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out five Giants in Wednesday's 1-0 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being the hard-luck loser Wednesday, Phelps has nothing to hang his head about after making just his second start of 2016. Building off his 4.1 scoreless innings (70 pitches) last time out against the Rockies, Phelps managed a 90-pitch performance for the first time in more than a year. The right-hander's lone mistake came in the top of the fourth when Brandon Crawford belted a 3-2 offering from Phelps over the fence in right. His upside is limited due to his inability to work deep into games, but Phelps has a decent track record as a starter in his career. The 29-year-old is a reasonable fantasy options for teams in need of an arm, and his upcoming start Tuesday in Cincinnati against one of the league's worst lineups is more than appealing.

Phelps tossed 4.1 shutout innings Friday against the Rockies while making his first start of the season. He earned no-decision in 5-3 win.

EDGE Analysis

It was a strong effort from Phelps as he allowed four hits and one walk with four strikeouts after being thrust into the starting rotation after spending the entirety of the season in the bullpen. As a result he was on a strict pitch count and pulled after 70 pitches. Phelps continues to put together his best season as a pro and has compiled a 2.45 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 58.2 innings pitched. The veteran hurler is lined up to take on the Giants at home Wednesday, if given another shot to start.

Phelps threw a bullpen on Tuesday and all signs point to him making the start at Colorado on Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Marlins dealing Colin Rea back to San Diego and not trading for another starter before the deadline, a spot has opened up in the Miami rotation. It looks like Phelps, who has been used as a start in the past, will take over that role for now. Phelps will make the start in Colorado on Friday, making him a very risky play in fantasy leagues.
