Another Joba update

The Ledger:

   
Joba Chamberlain, the Yankees' rising right-handed pitching prospect, said he will make his next appearance at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tomorrow.

It will be another step in transforming him from a starter to a reliever.

It will be Chamberlain's third relief appearance since making the shift from starter, in anticipation of him helping the Yankees' bullpen later this season. In each of Chamberlain's first two starts, he pitched one perfect inning on one day's rest, but tomorrow he will pitch two innings on two day's rest.

Chamberlain and Scranton pitching coach Dave Eiland indicated that tomorrow will be another test for his abilities as a reliever but that there is no set plan for him to be called up to New York.
