Joba throwing from half mound 2

Joba Chamberlain tweeted earlier this week that he threw 20 pitches from a half mound and said that he felt great. The next step in his rehab is to talk to Dr. James Andrews on Friday, who performed his Tommy John Surgery, and get clearance to begin throwing from a full mound.

Joba seems to be on track to participate in extended spring training and could join the Yankees in the Bronx by as early as the middle of May. With the way the bullpen is set right now, without significant injuries they may have the luxury of waiting until mid-June so not to worry about rushing him back.
