Tigers showing interest in Joba Chamberlain


New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

In an effort to add some depth to the bullpen, it looks as though the Tigers have set their sights on possibly signing Yankees hard throwing reliever Joba Chamberlain according to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.

The 28-year old Chamberlain is a guy that is coming off statistically his worst season as a pro accumulating a 4.93 ERA in 45 appearances with the Yankees last year. But despite the inflated ERA and control problems, Chamberlain was better on the road sporting a 3.54 ERA on the road as opposed to the 6.23 mark at Yankee Stadium. Injuries and off the field bad luck aside too Chamberlain’s velocity and strikeout rate appear to still be solid and at the right price could be a solid addition for the Tigers or any team going forward.
