Updated: Courtesy of Ed Price comes a Joba injury update. The Yanks expect Chamberlain to miss at least a month with rotator cuff tendinitis. According to Price’s sources, the Yanks do not consider this to be a major injury. However, as Price writes, “there is also a chance Chamberlain does not return this season simply because the Yankees will be extremely cautious with their most prized young arm.” Meanwhile, Joba says that he’ll be back before the end of August. That decision though is really up to the Yanks. There is no point in ruining the future simply for the sake of today.
