David Phelps loses arbitration case against the Marlins

1 Comment

David Phelps, whom the Marlins acquired from the Yankees in December, has lost an arbitration hearing with his new team.

That means Phelps will be paid $1.4 million instead of $1.85 million following a season in which he missed time on the disabled list and threw 113 innings with a 4.38 ERA.

He’ll try to win a full-time spot in the Marlins’ rotation, but may end up being used in the same swingman role he’s filled previously.
