    Hitting 97 already is great news. I figured he'd be tentative after such a long layoff and expected the velocity to gradually increase as he got more comfortable and his arm loosened up.

    Cautiously optimistic he adds a few more ticks. Yummy.

    Joba Chamberlain is ready for the next step and could pitch for the Class-A Florida State League Tampa Yankees Friday night in Bradenton.

    "I think it's time to move," Chamberlain said Tuesday. "Not saying that these hitters aren't good, but they neccessarily don't have the plan that the guys at the upper levels have. Now I think it's just time to be able to take a step forward and take another step. To be able to get a high level and see what happens."

    In his third GCL game Tuesday, Chamberlain struck out two during a perfect inning against Philadelphia minor leaguers. His fastball reached 98 mph, which surpassed the 97 he topped out at in both of his first two games.

    "I thought everything was more consistent," Chamberlain said. "It was definitely better than the last couple." Chamberlain allowed one unearned run, no hits and has six strikeouts in four overall innings.

    Austin Romine, coming back from a season-long back injury, caught Chamberlain.
    "He did a great job today," Chamberlain said of Romine. "In, out. Up and down. Being able to mix up pitches. We have to approach these guys like we're facing big-league guys. You've got to pitch the way you're going to pitch against guys in the big leagues."
    Can you imagine these Phillies' youngsters trying to hit him, with 98 MPH stuff and this kind of approach?

    Really? There's no guaranty that Mo will be Mo next year, and Soriano would provide needed insurance. Just look at how nicely he's stepped into the role this year. He's been an elite reliever for most of his career. And who's to know what we get with the freed up money? We're just as likely to land another Pavano or AJ etc. as we are a Hamels. I'd rather the Yanks invest in a player that they'd know what kind of performance they'd be getting.

    And if Mo is Mo and we still have Soriano? We'd have a potential lights-out pen next year, with a healthy (and good) Joba and DRob. Game over with a lead in the 5th.

    Also, I might be wrong, but I think teketic was serious.

    I played ball in a tournament against Jose Rijo (for those who remember him).
    He probably threw it in the low 90's....
    I had one at bat against him. Struck me out but not on 3 pitches.
    You shoulda seen the celebration when I foul tipped a ball and it didn't wind up in the catcher's mitt!!!

    A bullpen of D-Rob, Joba, Logan, Eppley, and Rivera is a solid enough core that could easily be rounded out without spending $14 million on Soriano, assuming everyone ends this season healthy. In addition, a guy like Montgomery, Tim Norton, or Pinder could take the D-Rob route to the majors and provide additional support. Finally, Cashman has proven he can find effective and cheap fill-ins like Bruney, Marte, and Wood.

    I also don't know why you're acting like Soriano is a sure thing while bringing up the possibility of landing another Pavano with his freed up salary. Soriano has an injury history as well.

    I agree that it would be cool to have a killer bullpen, but do you really want to hand the ball over to the bullpen in the 6th just because we can? He's been great, and I won't complain too much if he hangs around, but the money could almost certainly be better spent elsewhere.

    So assuming no setbacks (big assumption) what is the ETA for Joba, next week when they return from the west coast? Or a bit longer?

    He's already gone 2 innings in an outing. I'd guess the next hurdle is back to back days?

    I hope he faces some AA or AAA hitters before coming back. No real reason, just seems like an easier transition.

    I don't expect to see him until around August 10th.

    That would be right near the full 30 days. Didn't ca$hman say he wouldn't need the full 30?

    I don't really care either way. Joba/Ro/Mo is still pretty elite and it's easy to find guys that can come in and be excellent for a year or so before turning to duds. I never had a problem with Soriano's contract, I thought he was overpaid, but I didn't consider it to be a train-wreck. If he re-ups, woopty do, we'll just have to suffer with having another elite bullpen arm for extra year.

    I don't recall that. Given that he had TJ surgery and hasn't pitched in over a year, I think it's going to be close to the 30 days. The velocity isn't going to be as big a hurdle as his command.

    You called it correctly:
    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/07/1...thout-gardner/
    • Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to make another rehab appearance tomorrow. “I think once we get him going back to back I think you’ll have a better idea (of when he’ll be activated),” Girardi said. “You want to see how he responds the second day. Those 30 days are ticking.”

    • How rehabbing right-hander Joba Chamberlain responds to back-to-back outings is important, but not the final hurdle. Chamberlain is scheduled to throw in a Gulf Coast League game Friday.

    "I don't think that would be the last test," manager Joe Giradi said Thursday. "Let's let the powers that be make that decision."

    How the pitcher handles three games in four days is important too, Girardi said.

    Re: 2012 Joba Chamberlain Performance Thread

    Joba actually pitched for Tampa tonight, and not the GCL Yankees.

    2IP, 2H, 1BB, 1ER, 1HR, 1K, 32 pitches.

    I'm not worried too much about the numbers, given that it really is spring training for him. I would be interested in any reports of how he looked overall and especially how it goes tomorrow. Its safe to say, obviously, that the GCL dominance over the first few outings doesn't mean there aren't going to be bumps going forward.

    On Rotoworld, I found this:

    Joba Chamberlain (elbow, ankle) started and pitched two innings in a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits.

    He also walked one and struck out one in the outing. He's looked very strong through his first four rehab appearances, consistently sitting in the high 90's with his fastball. At this rate, he's likely to return to the Yankees bullpen in early August. Jul. 20 - 8:29 pm et

    Not that far off:
    Joba Chamberlain’s fastball was clocked at 100 mph, according to a speed gun at his rehab appearance Friday night in Bradenton, Fla.

    I really want to see how his slider is looking. Pitch was so nasty when he was first called up to the majors. I'm cautiously optimistic.
