Insight: Phelps rebounded from allowing nine runs on nine hits in 2 1/3 innings at Baltimore his last time on the mound. He has been better than his 5.01 ERA indicates, but he's still in danger of losing his spot in the rotation to Ivan Nova or Michael Pineda.

Insight: That will put a dent in the ERA. Phelps had won two straight games and pitched to a 3.27 ERA in 33 innings since joining the rotation earlier this month. Ivan Nova threw five innings of one-run ball (5 H, 1 BB, 6 K) in relief to enter himself into the rotation conversation. The team is currently awaiting the returns of Andy Pettitte and Michael Pineda, but will still need a fifth starter even after those pitchers come back.
