Joba throws for first time since ankle injury
NEW YORK -- Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain threw 25 pitches on Friday at the club's complex in Tampa, Fla., his first time on a mound since sustaining a right ankle injury in March.

"It felt good," Chamberlain told The Associated Press. "Another step forward. That's all you can do."

Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle bouncing on a trampoline with his son on March 22. He has also resumed running sprints in the outfield and told the AP he will pitch this season.

"Is that even a question?" he said.

David Aardsma threw 40 pitches during his third batting-practice session and might be ready to pitch in a simulated game late next week. Aardsma is recovering from Tommy John surgery performed last July.
