Prado, 31, split 2014 with the Diamondbacks and Yankees, batting .282 with 26 doubles, four triples, 12 home runs and 58 RBI in 143 games. He missed the final three weeks of the season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on September 16.

Phelps, 28, went 5-5 with one complete game and a 4.38 ERA in 32 appearances with New York last season. He established career highs in innings pitched (113.0) and games started (17), and over his three-year Major League career has gone 15-14 with a 4.21 ERA in 87 games (40 starts). Phelps was selected by the Yankees in the 14th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft.
