On To The Next One: David Phelps
Per a tweet from Jerry Crasnick, Seattle Mariners pitcher David Phelps has signed with Jet Sports for his representation.
He becomes the latest of a number of players looking for new representation after parting ways with Jason Wood and CSE. Originally making his MLB debut with the Yankees in 2012, the six-year veteran recently avoided arbitration with the Mariners signing a $5.55 million deal.
The relief pitcher underwent season-ending arthroscopic elbow surgery last September to remove a bone spur that had forced him to the DL twice during the 2017 season. For his career, he has a record of 30-33 with an ERA of 3.89, five saves, 520 strikeouts and a WHIP of 1.320. The former Notre Dame Fighting Irish pitcher has seen time with three big league clubs including the New York Yankees, Miami Marlins and Seattle Mariners.
At Jet Sports he will be represented by agents B.B. Abbott and Andrew Lowenthal. This duo will be responsible for negotiating his next contract as he is due to become a free agent after the 2018 season.
