Chamberlain making it look easy

Joba Chamberlain made his first appearance in his new role as a set-up man and seemed to pass his first test just fine in his one inning of work by striking out the side.

1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K -- 13 pitches -- 10 Strikes/3 Balls

Apparently, the plan is to give Chamberlain the day off tomorrow and let him throw an inning on Wednesday and evaluate his progress from there.

I predicted yesterday that we would likely see him wearing Yankee pinstripes in two weeks, but there now seems to be a real possibility that both he and Phil Hughes will be called up this weekend against the Royals.
