Chamberlain to DL, Noesi to Triple-A
Joba Chamberlain has been placed on the disabled list with a strained flexor muscle in his right arm, Joe Girardi said.
Chamberlain will be out 10-14 days and then can resume throwing, so this looks like it will knock him out for three to four weeks minimum.
Girardi said that Chamberlain likely has been pitching with the issue for a short while.
Hector Noesi sent to Triple-A; Amauri Sanit called up, as well as Jeff Marquez (claimed today from White Sox).
Jorge Posada is not here due to his son’s surgery. He is expected back tomorrow. Additionally, Girardi said that Russell Martin’s back locked up last night, so he’s also unavailable.
More details to follow.
