New York Yankees relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain has a torn ligament in his right elbow, and Andrew Marchand, of ESPNNewYork.com, says the set-up man is probably out for the rest of the year.

This is a big blow for the Yankees, this year, and maybe next year, if Chamberlian requires Tommy John Surgery.

It normally takes a pitcher 12 months to return from Tommy John surgery, and closer to 18 months to get back to 100%.

The Yankees may now be looking for a starting pitcher, and a relief pitcher, in possible trades.
