Joba to make Minors rehab appearance Tuesday

KANSAS CITY -- Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session on Sunday at Kauffman Stadium and said he will make a Minor League rehabilitation appearance on Tuesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Chamberlain has been told that he will start that game at Toledo, pitching one inning. Chamberlain has been on the disabled list with a right oblique strain, retroactive to April 28.

"It's one of those things, we'll probably just see how it goes on Tuesday and go from there," Chamberlain said. "It's reacted pretty well, but it's a little bit different throwing in a game."
