  Could a shattered bat be what prevents the New York Yankees from advancing to the ALCS? Good question, but don't ask Joba Chamberlain that question today. Chamberlain was pitching to Matt Wieters of the Baltimore Orioles in the 12th inning of Game 4 of the ALDS on Thursday night when disaster struck. Wieters lined a single to left, but his bat broke on the pitch and the barrel end of it sailed to the mound and hit the right elbow of Chamberlain, who didn't see it coming until the last moment.

Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle while playing with his son at a local spot that had a trampoline, jeopardizing his immediate future after yet another odd misstep for New York's bullpen at spring training. There was no timetable for Chamberlain's return. The team did not say whether the 26-year-old pitcher was using the trampoline equipment when he was injured Thursday. Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said Chamberlain had surgery and would be hospitalized at least a few days.

NEW YORK -- Joba Chamberlain bounced back from a disappointing first start with the New York Yankees, pitching into the fifth inning Sunday to help beat the Kansas City Royals, 6-3. "As a competitor, you want to be out there as long as you can go and as hard as you can go," said Chamberlain, who opened the year in the bullpen and was limited to 78 pitches on a 95-degree afternoon. "But you also understand that it's a transition.

Yankees Manager Joe Girardi is sticking with outfielder Nick Swisher for the American League Championship Series despite a slump in which he has hit .103 with one run batted in and 10 strikeouts in 29 postseason at-bats. And Swisher, who was in the lineup for Game 6 before it was postponed by rain, is appreciative of his manager's confidence. "We've had some talks in the past couple of days," Swisher said in the Yankee Stadium clubhouse. "Obviously I know it's not going exactly the way I wanted it to. But you've got to keep battling.

Is Mother Nature a Yankee fan? We may soon find out. New York Manager Joe Girardi told reporters in a conference call today that he may go with a three-man pitching rotation in the American League Championship Series against the Angels, a plan that would be far easier to implement with a rainout or two. "In the 10-day forecast that I looked at, it looks like we have some rain in the forecast, so that can change things," Girardi said....

NEW YORK -- There's only one series in the books -- granted. But change isn't just blowing through Yankee Stadium. It's moving at the sort of warp speed that straightens out those flags rimming the stadium. Three games into the new season, it feels as if the kids are carrying the Yankees. Or at least making all the plays you remember. First Melky Cabrera was flashing leather and hitting a home run, Chien-Ming Wang's sinker was thudding off bats and Joba Chamberlain had a typically electric inning of relief work to knock off Toronto in Tuesday's season opener.
