Joba Chamberlain Set to Return
The New York Yankees have activated releiver Joba Chamberlain before Tuesdays game with the Baltimore Orioles.
The Yankees traded Chad Qualls for Casey McGehee at the trade deadline with the intention of bring Joba back to fill his spot in the bullpen. Joba hasnt pitched in the majors since June of 2011 due to various injuries. Chamberlain since then has had Thommy John surgery, an appendectomy, dislocated ankle, and torn MCL.
Chamberlain has been very good in the rehab appearances going nine and a third innings with only a 0.96 ERA in seven appearances. Joba has been lighting up the radar gun in the minors and will be looking to duplicate his great pitching from the 2007 playoff run.
