The X-rays are back for Joba Chamberlain and they came back negative. A bone bruise is the diagnosis for Joba and he is day to day. He will be reevaluated tomorrow by team doctors. The best possible news we could have hoped for really.
Joba Chamberlain left tonight's big game 4 in the ALDS in the 12th inning after taking a shard of a broken bat from Matt Weiters to his pitching elbow. He threw warm up pitches and gave the thumbs up but Joe Girardi took him out anyway. Probably not a bad idea since he needed Tommy John surgery and reported no pain whatsoever and that welt and bruise looked absolutely horrible. We will keep you updated.
