According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, via River Ave. Blues, Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain was in the New York Rangers locker room after Saturday’s game against the Flyers and told reporters that he’s currently on schedule in his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery.
Chamberlain underwent the reconstructive elbow procedure this past June — only five months ago — and is likely to miss all or most of the 2012 season, even if he manages to avoid setbacks in his rehab.
The 26-year-old posted a promising 2.83 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings of relief this year before tearing his ulnar collateral ligament. He’s eligible for salary arbitration this winter for the second time. He made $1.4 million in 2011.
