Joba appears to be OK

New, 11 comments

There is only one story of huge concern in the Yankee Universe today -- and that is the health of Joba Chamberlain.

Fortunately, Joba appears to be fine after taking a line drive off the back of the knee last night. He said he will make his next start.

"I'm 100 percent confident," said Chamberlain, who left the game after facing just four hitters. "We did some tests. It was a little stiff obviously, but that's just going to be the way it is."

Joe Girardi also expects that Chamberlain won't miss a turn.

"He's day-to-day, so we won't really know until we get to that fifth day," Girardi said. "In my opinion, he'll make his next start. There's not a ton of swelling right now, but I don't know what it's going to look like (today)."

Phew! Even if he misses one start, this is definitely good news.
