Yankees' Joba Chamberlain hopes to return shortly after All-Star break

Thursday June 14th, 2012

New York Yankees righthanded reliever Joba Chamberlain tells David Lennon of Newsday that everything has gone well since he threw off a mound last Friday in Tampa, the first time he had done so since his March 22 trampoline mishap.

Chamberlain is now throwing with his dislocated ankle only taped rather than in a brace. He tells Lennon there has been "no soreness, no setbacks," and that he hopes to be back shortly after the All-Star break, which would be in about a month's time.
