According to George King of the New York Post the Braves and Giants “have an interest” in trading for Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain. King adds that both teams had a scout watching Chamberlain recently.
I was at Target Field last night, when Chamberlain picked up a win against the Twins with a scoreless inning, although he was all over the place and needed a mound visit at one point. It was an odd appearance.
Overall since coming off the disabled list in late May he’s thrown 11 innings with a 7.36 ERA, allowing opponents to hit .319 with four homers, although he does have a nice 15/4 K/BB ratio during that time.
It’s hard to imagine the Yankees getting a significant return for Chamberlain at this point. Thanks to an assortment of serious injuries he hasn’t thrown more than 30 innings in a season since 2010 and the 27-year-old right-hander is an impending free agent.
