DENVER (AP) -The New York Yankees recalled infielder Andy Phillips from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and designated first baseman Josh Phelps for assignment.
Phelps, a Rule 5 draft selection, was offered back to the Baltimore Orioles.
Phillips was making a push to break camp with the Yankees this spring when he missed time to be with his mother, Linda, who was critically injured in a car accident in Alabama on Feb. 28. She continues to recover.
