I'm merely speculating in the title there and I apologize in advance. Truth be told, I'm a fan of Joba Chamberlain and I'd love the Yanks to be looking at him as an extra help down the stretch... but I personally doubt it. Why you ask? Well, Joba was DFA'd by the Detroit Tigers on July 3rd. Of course when that happened, I thought immediately about him back in pinstripes... I'm silly like that.
This is how it all went down. According to Jason Beck who's a beat reporter for the Tigers:
That was follow up by this:Tigers have designated Joba Chamberlain for assignment, according to industry source.— Jason Beck (@beckjason) July 3, 2015
OK then. It was almost like Jack was talking directly to me.Joba Chamberlain was DFA'd by the Tigers yesterday, but the Yankees aren't expected to seek a reunion with him.— Jack Curry (@JackCurryYES) July 4, 2015
Oh well... carry on.
