Joba Chamberlain becomes latest Yankee added to disabled list
NEW YORK – Joba Chamberlain is the latest Yankees player to hit the team’s crowded disabled list.
The right-handed reliever has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain, the team announced on Thursday.
Chamberlain, 27, had no record and a 3.86 ERA in 10 appearances for New York this season, spanning 9 1/3 innings.
He had permitted four earned runs and 10 hits, walking six and striking out seven. Chamberlain last pitched on Saturday, when he recorded a save in a scoreless ninth inning against the Blue Jays.
The Yankees did not immediately announce a corresponding roster move to replace Chamberlain on the active roster.
New York now has 10 players on their star-studded disabled list, as Chamberlain joins Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Ivan Nova, Michael Pineda, Cesar Cabral, Francisco Cervelli and Kevin Youkilis.
