David Phelps will start second game of doubleheader
While Joe Girardi likes to have David Phelps in the bullpen, there was really no other option than to start the righthander in the second game of Wednesday’s day-night doubleheader against Toronto. Phelps is 2-2 with a 4.17 ERA in nine big-league starts ... The Blue Jays will start Henderson Alvarez in the day and lefthander Ricky Romero at night ... Tickets for Tuesday night’s game will be valid for the 1:05 game.
