Joba Chamberlain Back With Yankees

After suffering a freak ankle injury on a trampoline with his son toward the end of spring training, Joba Chamberlain, Winnebago, was facing a season in doubt.

Yet the big reliever rehabbed hard and was already back in action, pitching games in Double-A, working his way back into form. Just yesterday Chamberlain was on his way to Trenton to pitch for the Yankees affiliated when he received word  he was going to be rejoining the Yankees for the first time in over a year.

“When I got to Trenton, I was literally pulling into the parking lot and Stevie [Donohue, trainer] called and said, ‘You might want to turn around,’ ” Chamberlain told the New York Post. Chamberlain was activated from the 60-day disabled list before the Yankees’ 11-5 loss to Baltimore last night at the Yankee Stadium. “My heart started beating fast. I didn’t know what happened.”

Chamberlain pitched in today’s game with the Baltimore Orioles, entering to loud applause from the Yankee Stadium fans. Despite a rough outing (1 2/3 innings pitched, 2 runs allowed, including a home run), he still left to even more cheers.

“You’re expecting to go to Trenton and pitch; next thing you know, they’re telling you to turn around,” Chamberlain said to the New York Daily News. “I guess it’s the way my career has gone: Fast and not really knowing what’s going to happen. I guess I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
