From MLB.com, "We've liked Joba for years," team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski said in announcing the deal on Friday. "We feel he's a great addition with his experience. He can fill the role of pitching in the eighth inning if [manager] Brad [Ausmus] wants to use him there. He's been in a lot of big games in the Yankees organization."

Chamberlain was 23-14 with a 3.85 ERA in 260 games, including 43 starts in his seven seasons with the Yankees. Last season he had a 4.93 ERA in only 42 innings. He has a 4.18 ERA as a starter and a 3.51 ERA as a reliever in his career.

"We're starting a new chapter here," Chamberlain said to MLB.com. "Everything's in the past. I'm so fortunate for Mr. Ilitch and Mr. Dombrowski to give me this opportunity. The past is the past, and I've learned from it."
