Joba Chamberlain’s rehabbing right arm “feels great”

Dec 25, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain provided an update Saturday on his ongoing recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. It sounds like everything is going smoothly:source:

Chamberlain had the procedure in June and will be looking to return to live action around late May. He registered a 2.83 ERA and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings this past year before going under the knife.

      How much bug spray could they have doused him with?

    This guy was back to form before he got hurt, they would be stupid to even think about trading him away. This is their real future closer, guy is outstanding and has a great arm and when he comes back he wont be injuried like he was before

    Had the Yankees not jerked him in and out of the starting rotation and back to set up he probably would never have gotten hurt. They rushed this kid and now they are handling him with kid gloves. No matter what he says I doubt if we’ll see him in the Bronx until after the All Star Game

    Is his arm in the best shape of its life?
