The Yankees are adjusting the starting rotation.

Manager Joe Girardi is moving Freddy Garcia to the bullpen, in favor of rookie David Phelps, at least for now.

Garcia is 0-2 with an ERA above 12, and is coming off back to back outings of just 1 2/3 innings. Saturday he was knocked around for six runs in the Yankees 7-5 loss to Detroit.

Reports indicate Andy Pettitte may be ready to be called up the second week of May.

Also on Sunday, New York optioned Cody Eppley to Triple-A Scranton, and called up reliever D.J. Mitchell.
