Joba Chamberlain is almost certainly heading for surgery with a torn ligament in his right elbow. Joe Girardi said he doesn’t know how Chamberlain could avoid surgery.

The problem was discovered in a dye contrast MRI today. Girardi said Chamberlain has no symptoms, and has passed every strength test. The Yankees don’t know when this happened or how long he’s had it.

The good news for the day: Phil Hughes threw 30 pitches today and was 90-92 mph.
