    Where is Joba Chamberlain? I haven’t seen stats for him since winter. Is he injured?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Ben

    Joba’s suffering from a hamstring injury. He’ll be back soon. It’s not an arm related injury.

  • Mike R.

    Thank you Ben. I couldn’t find info anywhere. I thought he might have come down with that 16 month elbow bug that seems to be spreading throughout the minor league system like wild fire.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Ben

    Nah. He just has the hamstring bug that’s plaguing the other half of the players who aren’t currently undergoing or rehabbing from TJ surgery.

  • Yankee Fan in Chicago

    How good is this Reyes kid going to be?

    • vin

      Prediction: You’ll never hear from him again.

  • http://riveravblues.com Mike A.

    Joba’s set to start sometim ethis week I believe.

    Reyes can be good, very good in fact. He’s still got a ways to go though.
