David Phelps pitched well for the Cubs, posting a 3.18 ERA in 24 games, a 2-1 record, and one save.
After the season, he became a free agent with the Milwaukee Brewers, but for the second year in a row, he was part of a deadline trade, this time to the Philadelphia Phillies for three players to be named later.
At the time, he was 2-3 with a 2.77 ERA in 12 games, with a 20/2 K/W ratio in 13 innings. However, in 10 games with the Phillies, he had an ERA of 12.91.
He subsequently returned to the Blue Jays as a free agent in 2021, and was one of the pitchers that helped the organization build an unexpectedly strong bullpen in the early going.
However, due to pain, he was forced to depart a game against the Oakland Athletics on May 5th before throwing a pitch.
He was placed on the disabled list while the Blue Jays sought to figure out what was wrong with him; it turned out to be more serious than anybody had anticipated, and he had to have surgery on his lat muscle, which forced him to miss the rest of the season.
It was a major setback for the Jays since he was not only pitching well, but he was also one of the few members of their bullpen with extensive big-league experience, which helped some of their younger pitchers acclimatize to life in the majors.
