Joba Chamberlain Activated From DL By New York Yankees

Joba Chamberlain has been activated for the New York Yankees' game against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, general manager Brian Cashman announced. The Yankees dealt reliever Chad Qualls to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for infielder Casey McGehee. To compensate the absence in the bullpen, Cashman decided to cut Chamberlain's rehab stint a bit short.

Cashman asked head athletic trainer Steve Donohue if Chamberlain was healthy enough to be activated.

"He said no," Cashman said. "I said 'OK, as of right now, keep him on line in Trenton, but if I move on Qualls for McGehee, then obviously I would reinstate Joba.'"

Chamberlain is coming off Tommy John surgery last June, and an open dislocation of his right ankle suffered while jumping around a trampoline palace with his son this past Spring. He had a 0.96 ERA in seven minor league appearances this season.
