TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Joba Chamberlain could soon pitch in a minor
league game for the first time since injuring an during spring
training.

The New York Yankees reliever said he is scheduled to throw in a
simulated game on Friday. Chamberlain threw a pair of 20-pitch
segments Monday during his third batting practice session at the
team’s minor league complex.

Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle bouncing on a trampoline
with his son on March 22 and expects to see game action within two
weeks. The right-hander was coming back from elbow
ligament-replacement surgery at the time of the ankle injury.
