Joba out for the season

Joba Chamberlain (New York Yankees) will undergo Tommy John surgery rate next week at the elbow of his pitching arm, which will end his season.

Chamberlain has a torn right elbow ligament and is expected to be out of circulation at least a year.

The Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Dr. James Andrews performed surgery on Thursday, which is to replace an elbow ligament with a tendon from another part of the body.

"It is easier to deal with this. I know I'm going to get better, and is not life or death, " Chamberlain said. "I'm just happy to be able to fix and can come back stronger and hopefully have a long career. " The 25-year right-hander leads 2-0 with 2.83 ERA in 27 games. It has been a key member of the Yankees staff for several years.
