Joba Chamberlain is leaving the Yankees on Wednesday and will have Tommy John surgery on Thursday with Dr. James Andrews.

The Yankees have not officially made a move today, but Kevin Whelan is on his way from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Joe Girardi said he might have a move to announce later today. Sounds like the team is just waiting to make sure Whelan gets here in time. Obviously no corresponding move has been announced, either on the 40-man or the active roster.

UPDATE, 4:41 p.m.: As Tom pointed out in the comments,’s transactions page says Whelan has been called up, Chris Dickerson optioned and Chamberlain placed on the 60-day. That may be correct, but the Yankees haven’t officially announced any sort of move and Dickerson is definitely here for batting practice. Hard to imagine the Yankees official site, though, being incorrect with that sort of move. I doubt just took a wild guess at who’s being sent down.
