David Phelps retired all seven Red Sox he faced for his first career save on Thursday.

Shawn Kelley was unavailable tonight after throwing 31 pitches Wednesday, so the Yankees simply decided to stick with Phelps in the ninth, though they did have Matt Thornton warming behind him in case he got into trouble. Bob Davidson gave him a very, very generous third strike call on Mike Napoli to start the ninth, and Phelps made it look easy after that. It was quite a change from a first 10 days that had seen him allow three homers in 3 2/3 innings.

David Phelps shut out the Rays for five innings in a 3-3 tie on Sunday.

Phelps, whose name has come up in trade rumors with the Mariners, has allowed one two runs in 9 2/3 innings this spring. The Yankees are rooting for Michael Pineda to beat him out for the opening in their rotation, but even if that happens, there will be no pressure on them to make a deal. Phelps would still be valuable to the team as a middle reliever and rotation insurance.

David Phelps allowed just one run despite giving up five hits and a walk over 2 2/3 innings against the Orioles Tuesday.

Phelps struck out a pair on the night, with the lone run coming home on an RBI groundout. The right-hander has served as a swingman for the Yankees the last two seasons but has a good shot at the fifth starter job if he pitches will this spring.

David Phelps gave up a run in two innings and struck out four against the Pirates on Thursday.

The run came on a Gregory Polanco homer. All four strikeouts were looking. Phelps is probably at the mercy of Michael Pineda as he contends for a rotation spot this spring. If Pineda pitches up to his potential, it won't matter what Phelps does. Ideally, the Yankees could stick Phelps in middle relief initially and then use him to plug any gaps that develop.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he's still unsure of how David Phelps will be used in 2014.

"I think he's pretty much capable of doing whatever you ask him to do," Girardi said. "There's a lot of things we have to evaluate this spring, and he's a big part, trying to figure out where he fits in." Phelps will compete with Michael Pineda, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno for the fifth spot in the Yanks' rotation this spring, but if he fails to earn the job he'll certainly have a role in the bullpen. The right-hander appeared in 22 games last year, starting 12 and finishing three en route to a 4.98 ERA in 86 2/3 innings of work.
