Joba Chamberlain could be on the way to the minors

CC Sabathia is coming back? That means someone has to go down or out. And one possibility for that is Joba Chamberlain:

With CC Sabathia due back from the disabled list on Friday, the Yankees will have to make a roster move to open a spot for their returning ace. According to a source, the team is considering a demotion for Chamberlain, who has struggled badly in his seven appearances.

It would likely only be a short-term demotion, seeing as though rosters expand in eight days.

Whatever the case, Chamberlain is not pitching in high leverage situations and it’s not like he’s getting the job done.  If he was anyone other than the famous guy Joba Chamberlain it wouldn’t be worth an article at this point, but he’s always going to be news, it seems.
