Update: Joba leaves game after getting hit by broken bat, x-ray negative


11:41pm: X-rays came back negative and Joba has a right elbow contusion. He’ll be re-evaluated tomorrow. Good news, that looked scary.

11:23pm: Joba Chamberlain left tonight’s game in the 12th inning after getting hit in the right elbow with a broken bat. The barrel hit him square and the TBS broadcast showed a big welt right on the tip of his elbow. Joba threw a few warm-up pitches and gave a thumbs up, but Joe Girardi (rightfully) lifted him from the game anyway.

    I have an irrational love for Phelps, but I’m hating this as Phelps has had a lot of trouble in the first inning ptiched. Perhaps Lowe for a ground ball with a runner on first?
