Joba Chamberlain makes back-to-back appearances

For a guy who – if you believed the early reports from the trampoline incident – had his last rites administered and was 3/4 of the way down the white tunnel of light, his ancestors beckoning to him to join them, Joba Chamberlain is doing pretty well.

In fact, he threw 11 pitches in a rehab appearances yesterday, which was his second inning of work in as many days.  Overall he’s made five rehab appearances, throwing seven innings, allowing one earned run and striking out seven.

He looks Yankees-bound. Probably within the next couple of weeks.

    Oh boy.

      I mean, I’m really glad he isn’t dead & all, but still, oh boy.

    who gets demoted? assuming we are talking before Sept.

      My monies on Chad Qualls hitting the road. He’s been pretty much useless during his brief time with the Yankees anyway.

        uyf1950…how’s everything with you? I agree, Qualls is history as soon as Joba”s ready. They took a flier on Qualls, but even though he has a good fastball he seems to fool no one, but at least he filled up some innings while he was there.

        you know…. i completely forgot that the yanks even had him.

      • uyf1950 - Jul 26, 2012 at 12:14 PM

        Pisano, my friend I’m well how are you doing?

        Number42is1, that’s because he’s easily forgettable.

      Almost positive his rehab clock ends before the end of August, so as uyf mentions, Qualls will get the boot.

      • uyf1950 - Jul 26, 2012 at 12:17 PM

        Church the 30 day clock started with Joba’s first rehab assignment which I believe was July 10th so the Yankees have 30 days from that date to call him back up.

    Very good news, the Yankees need someone to fill that 7th inning role.

    Qualls is out, he’s a turd.

    Sorry guys, the title got cut off, it was supposed to read:

      Ouch, you Yankees fans are a sensitive, insecure bunch huh?

      • Jeremy T - Jul 26, 2012 at 6:15 PM

        Eh, if someone were to make an original, funny joke at the Yankees expense, I’d laugh. It just so happens that this was neither of those things. Actually, he doesn’t even look overweight anymore, unless there’s something funky going on with camera angles in that picture.

    This when we miss Len the most. You know what we want, what we must have: a FAT TOAD comment.

    • bigharold - Jul 26, 2012 at 1:04 PM

      Leave Joba Alone!

    • number42is1 - Jul 26, 2012 at 1:06 PM

      Where did Len go?

  7. deathmonkey41 - Jul 26, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    Is that a recent pic? If so, Joba’s looking quite svelte these days.

    • whatthehellisansky - Jul 26, 2012 at 1:20 PM

      Must be pretty recent – looks like a surgical scar on his right elbow…

    • Jeremy T - Jul 26, 2012 at 6:13 PM

      I was just about to say the same thing. Looks like he’s lost a ton of weight

  8. whatthehellisansky - Jul 26, 2012 at 1:22 PM

    As much as hes been a side show in his time in the BX- i must say i’m impressed. Guy talked the talk and backed it up. Throwin 100mph after his elbow and his ankle troubles.

    Good for you Joba – now get your ass up to the bigs and help us get #28.

    Yankees really need Joba to come in as the 7th inning lockdown guy. By all reports I’ve seen on the YES channel, Joba is in great shape and has slimmed down considerably.
