From Pete Abe:
This from Brian Cashman: Chamberlain has what is being described as
rotator cuff tendinitis. He will be rested for “about a week” and then
start a throwing program after being evaluated again.
He will return to New York.
Just for your own reference: “tendinitis” is a nice way to say he has a little tear in his rotator cuff.
Joe Girardi said before the game he was optimistic Joba would play
again this season. But a rotator cuff issue is nothing to mess around
with. Don’t expect to see Chamberlain any time soon this season, if at
I thought it was leprosy, so I’m taking this as good news in the long-term. At least his arm isn’t going to fall off.
