The Yankees have placed Joba Chamberlain on the bereavement list, as his father has been hospitalized at the St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center in Lincoln, Neb. Joba accompanied the team to Tampa then caught a flight to Nebraska. Harlan Chamberlain is in intensive care.
Chamberlain must stay on the bereavement list a minimum of three days. After seven days, a player can re-apply for a seven-day renewal or be placed on the restricted list.
RHP Jonathan Albaladejo was recalled from Triple-A Scranton.
For what it’s worth, MLB needs to change the name of the bereavement list as it’s not necessarily for deaths. The family leave list or something.
