    2012 Joba Chamberlain Performance Thread

    Less than four months after suffering what some doctors believed could be a career-threatening ankle injury, Joba Chamberlain made his first rehab appearance and could be back with the Yankees in a few weeks.


    The right-hander pitched one inning with the Gulf Coast League Yankees on Tuesday and hit 97 MPH, another encouraging sign after Tommy John surgery last summer.

    That's great news. You have to wonder if these injuries were a blessing in disguise seeing how he's more focused, more serious and working harder than ever to get himself into playing shape. It seems like he's grown up and has a whole new attitude. Can't wait - actually psyched- to see him return to the mound.

    If he's on, the bullpen is going to be phenomenal -- which is crazy to think about with Mo out.

    I know, it's nuts. Things looked somewhat dire with both he and Mo going down. If he's on, the pen will be pretty damn formidable. Plenty of short games and the starters should remain fresh for the post season.

    I agree with this, the experience probably showed him how quickly this can all end, especially for a guy who burst on the scene and was basically pegged for greatness before he really accomplished anything. Hope hes back to form in 2012.

    And the topper is that I read today that even Mo might be able to pitch @ the end of the season

    Hard to know what to expect when he returns. Not sure whether to look for the lights out Joba, or the flame out Joba. Either way, I'm excited to find out.

    Given the Yankee organization's history with rehabs, I'm not counting on Joba returning until he's actually back. I'm glad he's pitching again and all, but they've had too many rehabs mishandled, shut down, etc. for me to have a lot of confidence in the process.

    Good point. How many rehabs has Gardner had so far this season.

    The less time he spends with the team and more with specialists the better.

    I am still bitter about how badly CMW rehab was botched.

    Time for my mandatory gripe about the state of sports medicine in US.

    Even youth soccer teams got dedicated fully fledged physicians travelling with the players in Europe, why do our MLB teams not have that?

    Our "team" doctors all got full time jobs elsewhere and don't have day-to-day contact with players.

    It boggles my mind that something so basic and taken for granted in Europe (and NFL nowadays) is virtually unheard of in MLB.

    This is very true......and inexcusable.

    perhaps it has to do with the strength of the MLBPA.

    You'd think that with the astronomical contracts players get these days that owners would want to protect their investments. I guess most physicians would earn more with a private practice than as a team physician and in the off season, the need for their services would dwindle. If it were me, I'd jump at the opportunity for what I earn now.

    I think it's a brand name syndrome. Almost all the "team" doctors have prestigious posts at well known clinics/hospitals/universities.

    For the lack of better words (for me at least, industry probably got a more precise name), what we need is a "team" doctor that works like primary care physicians for our athletes, not another professor padding his resume.

    I think part of the lure for doc's is that they can pimp the fact that they're the team doc and it's probably a great practice builder

    Joba Chamberlain has sailed through his second rookie-level Gulf Coast League game, and looks like a pitcher quickly nearing a promotion to a higher minor-league level.

    The Yankees' reliever, coming back from ankle and elbow injuries, struck out two and didn't allow a hit over two scoreless innings Saturday against Blue Jays minor leaguers. One batter did reach on a fielding error.

    "It was good," said Chamberlain, who threw 19 of 28 pitches for strikes. "My slider was a lot better. Fastball command was better today, but not where I want it. It was just great to be able to sit and get back up for another inning. My velocity was better in the second inning than it was in the first inning, so that's always a good sign."

    Chamberlain's fastball reached 97 mph for the second consecutive game.
    There has been no annoucement on where Chamberlain will pitch next, although a promotion soon seems inevitable.

    "It's getting closer," Chamberlain said. "Obviously, the two innings is a big step. I felt like I handled it pretty good. Hopefully here soon, go put a different uniform on and get going.

    Heard Joba again sat at 95 mph in rehab outing this morning and, as was the case in first outing, reached 97

    Two innings? Stretching him out?

    An '07esque Joba would be a vicious addition to this pen.
    Man if Rivera hadn't gone down with the freak injury, who on the planet could match a pen that started with Mo, Giggles, Robertson and Joba?

    I actually kinda wanna see Soriano come back next year (if he doesn't opt out) just for this reason.
