Joba Chamberlain‘s career has gone off the rails after a promising start, but it appears that plenty of teams are interested in taking him on as a reclamation project.
Chamberlain was mishandled early in his career with the infamous “Joba Rules” and hasn’t been the same since returning from Tommy John surgery and an ankle dislocation, posting a 4.74 ERA in 67 relief appearances over the past two seasons. His control was the big issue this year, as he averaged a career-high 5.6 BB/9. Still, he’s only 28 years old and his velocity is still there, so it’s no surprise that multiple teams are targeting him as a buy-low flier.
