Joba Chamberlain’s career has gone off the rails after a promising start, but it appears that plenty of teams are interested in taking him on as a reclamation project.
More than a dozen teams have inquired on Joba Chamberlain. No surprise, Yankees are NOT one of them. Has plenty of suitors though.—

Chamberlain was mishandled early in his career with the infamous “Joba Rules” and hasn’t been the same since returning from Tommy John surgery and an ankle dislocation, posting a 4.74 ERA in 67 relief appearances over the past two seasons. His control was the big issue this year, as he averaged a career-high 5.6 BB/9. Still, he’s only 28 years old and his velocity is still there, so it’s no surprise that multiple teams are targeting him as a buy-low flier.
