David Phelps has been on the disabled list for a month with a strained forearm and now his minor-league rehab assignment has been put on hold due to a new injury.

Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger reports that Phelps has been diagnosed with “another strain in the area that connects his forearm and his elbow” and will be shut down for at least two weeks, putting the Yankees right-hander’s status for the remainder of the season in jeopardy.

Manager Joe Girardi called the new injury “strange” and “concerning” while McCullough notes that if Phelps does come back in time to pitch again this season it would likely be as a reliever. He has a 4.39 ERA in 23 starts for the Yankees since last season.

      check the standings kid, your team hasn’t done squat sine “93 and 2013 will be no different after all the moves and cash you clowns spent. Yanks wont get there this season but they got some good young pitching and will make a few moves for a few bats this offseason and look out and your team? Oh that’s easy they will still be dead last in 2014 and beyond!! baseball in Canada has its days numbered!!
