Joba to pitch Tues in Toronto

As opposed to the NY Post story today, this one seems legit.   Buster Olney reports that Jeff Karstens will be sent packing to Scranton.

Omaha World-Herald:

Joba Chamberlain has been summoned to the major leagues and is scheduled to pitch in relief of Roger Clemens Tuesday night as the New York Yankees visit the Toronto Blue Jays.

Chamberlain, a 21-year-old former Nebraska All-American, received word of the promotion Monday, according to his father, Harlan Chamberlain, and immediately flew from Scranton, Pa., to Toronto.

The Yankees have not officially announced the move.

"To be happening this quick, it's just a dream," the elder Chamberlain said. "It's a dream that was always there, but to achieve it this quick, it's unbelievable. It's surreal."
