    According to Jon Lane of the YES Network, Brian Cashman is thrilled with the progress of Joba Chamberlain. Some of the money quotes:

    “Joba’s out of control,” said Cashman on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton Tuesday morning. “The stuff he’s featuring is remarkable. He’s as high as 100 (mph) but upwards consistently (at) 96, 97, 98. He looks really good.

    “He’s an amazing guy. He’s been hurt, he gets hurt a lot, but then his recovery time is like super-human — always beats the standard. So yeah, he’s due back here shortly. I mean, the worst-case scenario would be the first week of August, but he should be here ahead of that.”

    Lane goes on to mention that the Yankees want Chamberlain to throw back to back days and that should happen in the next week. Once he passes that test, Joba looks ready to roll.

    The Yankees traded for Ichiro Suzuki late yesterday afternoon, a move that brought a lot of surprise, raised eyebrows, and appreciation for Ichiro’s career, etc., but distinctly lacking, as far as I saw, was much excitement for what he adds to the Yankees at the margins. That’s probably because, well, Ichiro isn’t playing very well these days, and hasn’t played particularly well since the 2010 season.
