Joba continues to make progress
Via Chad Jennings, Joba Chamberlain threw a 40 pitch live batting practice session yesterday, and is scheduled for a simulated game on Friday. That puts him on schedule to begin a minor league rehab stint in roughly two weeks, give or take. If there are no setbacks, that puts his timetable for a return to the big leagues at about 6-7 weeks following Tommy John surgery and that severe ankle dislocation. In other news, I’m still beyond amazed at how quickly Joba has progressed in his rehab work over the spring months.
