Joba on DL

Joba Chamberlain was placed on the 15 day disabled list following an exit during his outing against the Texas Rangers.
He was sent to Dr. Andrews, a prestigious Tommy John surgeon, who reported the outlook was good. No surgery needed.
This does hurt the Yankees playoff hopes with a crippled staff. Wang is already out, and Pettitte has been hit and miss lately.

After the 8-game win streak following the All-Star break, the Yankees fell from 2 games of 1st, to 6 1/2, and remain third in the wild card race.

Playoff chances: 30%-40%

    In a way I wish you were right, but I would honestly put the percentage much lower, maybe to 15%.

    I think there is definitely still a chance, but I have a hard time seeing the Yankees being able to top the red-hot Tamp Bay Rays nor the more than talented Boston Red Sox. I mean the Yankees are in the very best division in major league baseball, but them in any other one and they would almost certainly make the playoffs.
