Geore King of the Post reports:

Don Welke, a senior special assistant to Texas general manager Jon Daniels, was at Steinbrenner Field on Monday specifically to watch Chamberlain pitch an inning against St. Louis.

Buster Olney adds that Craig Gentry could be an intriguing player to send back to New York if, in fact, the Rangers are interested in a trade.

Obviously the Yankees’ short term needs don’t involve speedy, defense-first outfielders, but if the Yankees do stumble as so many of the doom-sayers are predicting, Chamberlain would be an interesting trade chit.
