Joba Chamberlain serves up go-ahead home in loss to Angels


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain allowed the go-ahead run and took the loss Sunday afternoon against the Angels in Anaheim.

Chamberlain permitted a solo home run to David Freese in the eighth inning. He was charged with one run on two hits and no walks while striking out one over one inning pitched in a 2-1 defeat. He owns a 2.70 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over 43 1/3 innings of relief.

Joba Chamberlain dealing with occasional ankle pain


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) An ankle ailment prevented Brad Ausmus from calling on setup man Joba Chamberlain in the ninth inning of a tie game Saturday against Cleveland, but not Sunday. Chamberlain pitched a scoreless eighth for the Tigers despite yielding two walks.

"(The ankle) flares up from time to time," Ausmus told MLB.com on Sunday.


Joba Chamberlain serves up go-ahead home run


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain was unable to close out Sunday night's game against the Red Sox, as he was pegged with the blown save and loss in a 5-3 defeat.

Chamberlain surrendered a go-ahead three-run home run to David Ortiz in the ninth inning, which proved to be the difference. He yielded three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning of work. He owns a 3.29 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in 27 1/3 innings of relief.

Joe Nathan figures to have long leash


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Let's not rush to pick up Joba Chamberlain just yet.

Certainly if it's a deep league and you can't afford to lose your primary source of saves, handcuffing Joe Nathan isn't a terrible idea, but that would have been true even before this stretch in which he's allowed 10 earned runs in his last six appearances.

As manager Brad Ausmus -- the one who makes these decisions -- suggested Wednesday, Nathan's track record gives him a longer leash than most closers. He has consistently been one of the best in the role for more than a decade now, and the Tigers gave him a big contract this offseason because they were convinced he would end their ninth-inning circus once and for all. Are four bad outings really enough for them to re-open Pandora's box, especially after they invested all that money just so they wouldn't have to?

Nathan had a 3.24 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings before this rough patch began -- good enough numbers to have everyone believing nothing is wrong. And all the underlying factors suggest nothing is wrong. His velocity is the same as last year, as is his pitch selection. As long as it continues, the results should follow.


Joba Chamberlain converts second save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) With Joe Nathan given the night off, Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain stepped up and converted his second save of the season Friday night in Seattle.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain said Monday he's available to pitch after leaving Sunday's game against the Rangers with a bruised right ankle, per MLive.com. Chamberlain has a 1.42 ERA and .217 opponents' batting average in his last 13 appearances.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Joba Chamberlain picks up loss Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Twins reliever Joba Chamberlain was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Tigers. 

Chamberlain had been one of the club's best pitchers entering Sunday, but had a tough time recording his final out. Chamberlain hit Brian Dozier to start the inning, and then walked Joe Mauer. He recovered well, striking out the next two batters. 

Things fell apart with two outs. Josmil Pinto singled in two runs, and then made it to scoring position on an error. He came around to score on a single by Eduardo Nunez. Nunez was thrown out trying to advance to second. 

Chamberlain gave up three runs, two of which were earned, during the appearance. He allowed two hits and one walk. He struck out two batters. The loss drops him to 1-2.


Joba Chamberlain earns one-out save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) After the White Sox scored three runs in the top of the ninth, the Tigers turned to reliver Joba Chamberlain, who recorded the final out in his team's 8-6 win Tuesday to earn his first save of the season.

The Tigers took an 8-2 lead into the eighth inning, but after the White Sox picked up a run in that inning they were able to push three more across in the ninth. Called upon with two outs in an 8-6 game, Chamberlain walked a batter with the bases empty before getting a line out to end the game. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 11:2 K:BB ratio in 6 2/3 innings.


Struggles continue for Joba Chamberlain in Detroit debut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain gave no indication that the personal regression that began in 2012 was about to reverse itself in his first outing with his new team Tuesday night.

Chamberlain took the loss after his team had rallied to tie the game with two out in the ninth. He walked Chone Figgins to open the inning before giving up a two-out double to Carl Crawford that gave Detroit its second loss of the season.


Joba Chamberlain lacking velocity in first appearance


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain was lacking velocity in his first appearance with the club, according to ESPN.

Bruce Rondon, Joba Chamberlain in running for setup job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2014) The Tigers have been set at closer since signing Joe Nathan. But their setup situation has yet to be resolved. Newly acquired Joba Chamberlain and 2013 disappointment Bruce Rondon are battling for that spot.

"Right now, [they] are probably the two guys in my mind who you think about as eighth-inning guys for the team," Brad Ausmus told MLive.com on Saturday. "Performances will determine who actually ends up being the eighth-inning guy. That being said, it could change once you move into the season. ... Even if I know coming out of spring training who that is it doesn't mean it's going to stay."
