Chamberlain to have elbow surgery
NEW YORK (AP)
Chamberlain has a torn ligament in his right elbow and is expected to be sidelined for at least a year. New York manager Joe Girardi says Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure Thursday.
In other injury news affecting the Yankees, catcher Russell Martin was out of the lineup again Friday night against Cleveland because of a stiff back. Francisco Cervelli was behind the plate, and Girardi says he hopes Martin will be able to play this weekend.
