A-Rod officially to the DL; Joba makes final ST start

From The Star-Ledger -

The team announced late Saturday afternoon that Rodriguez was placed on the disabled list with a right hip labrum tear, retroactive to March 27.

Rodriguez's placement on the disabled list was merely a formality that had to be put in place as the regular-season begins Sunday night.

 

Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain allowed two runs and two hits over 5 1-3 innings in his final spring training start on Sunday.

Chamberlain, pitching for Double-A Trenton in a camp game against Triple-A Scranton/Wikes-Barre, retired 16 in a row — including five strikeouts — after allowing two hits and a walk to start the game.

The Yankees' No. 5 starter faced additional batters after three outs were recorded — two in the third and three during the fifth — to reach his scheduled pitch count of 75.

"It took me just a little bit to get going," Chamberlain said. "I wanted to work on fastball command and my changeup, and I think I did a great job with those two. I think it was one of my most productive days as far as consistency. It was good."

He is scheduled to make his first regular-season start next Sunday at Kansas City.
