    The New York Yankees have decided to put struggling starter Freddy Garcia in the bullpen with rookie David Phelps the favorite to assume the fifth starter role for the moment.With a day off scheduled for May 7, the Yankees only need one start from the No. 5 spot until veteran Andy Pettitte's possible return around May 10.Used primarily as the team's long reliever, Phelps has thoroughly outpitched Garcia through the first month of the season. In four starts, Garcia lasted just 13 2/3 innings and his ERA was 12.51. He is 0-2.
