Now a Tiger, Joba Chamberlain is excited to have a beard

Getting away from the limelight in New York, and all the stress and expectations that come with it, might be just what Joba Chamberlain needs to get his career back on track. He logged 42 innings last season, the most he has pitched since 2010. He’s had Tommy John surgery, surgery on his ankle, and suffered a strained right oblique. But getting a fresh start with a new team isn’t what has Chamberlain excited.

The Red Sox just got third baseman Rafael Devers back from the disabled list last week. Now he’s going back on, retroactive to yesterday, with a left hamstring strain.

It’s the same injury that put him on the shelf before, and he apparently aggravated it. In fact, it’s his third trip to the disabled list over the last five weeks. How much time he’ll miss this time around isn’t known. In the meantime, Eduardo Nunez should see the bulk of the starts at the hot corner.

Devers is hitting .242/.298/.422 with 16 homers and 55 RBI on the year.
