Joba Chamberlain’s Return Not Off to a Great Start

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 01:  Joba Chamberlain #62 of the New York Yankees reacts to the action in the seventh-inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium on August 1, 2012 in the Bronx borough of New York City.  (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)

First came the homer he allowed to the first batter he faced yesterday, then came the RBI double he gave up an inning later, and then, after the Yankees finished up their 12-3 win over Baltimore, came the inevitable column about how he’s no-longer the flame-throwing sensation he was in 2007. (The final line for Chamberlain, who cut his rehab stint short this week to re-join the big-league team: two runs, four hits, one walk, and no strikeouts in an inning and two-thirds.) So, welcome back, Joba.
