07:17 AM ET 07.03 | Nearly since being drafted No. 41 overall by the Yankees in 2006, Joba Chamberlain was considered a cornerstone of the franchise's future -- and yet the story never has played out as a fairy tale. According to a pair of American League talent evaluators, the Braves and Giants have an interest in [Chamberlain]. Braves scout Jim Fregosi watched Chamberlain pitch a scoreless inning Friday night in Baltimore, when his fastball was clocked in the mid-90s. The Giants sent scout Lee Elder to Target Field for last night's Twins-Yankees game exclusively to watch Chamberlain. He posted another scoreless frame but walked and hit a batter. During spring training the Rangers were interested in Chamberlain, but never made an offer to the Yankees.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA......................close enough, a thread on another washed up Yankee.

Hey, I've got a trade idea, Chambelain for Nolasco - that turd swap would benefit both teams tired of the feces they have.

Somebody PLEASE take this guy. What an overhyped waste of roster space.. Ship him anywhere. Fast!

Joba for a bag of used baseballs and some Big League Chew. DEAL.

Well the Cubs did manage to get someone with a pulse for Marmol so I guess anything is possible....

Remember the day when Joba the Hut and Hughes were the "untouchables"???? Good call Cashman. LOL

True, but they did squeeze one WS ring out of it , and Hughes was a big part of it. But everything changes, just give it time.

I have to agree with you on that, and both Joba and Hughes could interest some teams in the NL West for the stretch run.

That MLB cheerleader from Tampa Bay over ----------> is quite hot.

Um, no!

They both are throwing the hard velocity wise and both will be free agents at seasons end. Hard to find quality of any kind in the bargain bin, but these could really help someone. I just don't see the Yankees going anywhere this year, so, move them while you can.

I'm so happy this guy failed, one of my least favorite players ever.

Pitching is hard to find. Joba will have a job as a middle reliever until he loses his fastball.

He's making $1.87MM thsi year. He'll pull at least that for the next 5 or 6 years probably. I'd like to fail like that.

Yes. Yes she is.

Joba is not very consistent. When he overcomes that he may be decent.

July 3, 2013  12:30 PM ET

My best news from this article is that he appears to be the one pitcher that the Dodgers aren't trying to sign... which actually speaks a lot to what he probably still has left to bring to the table..

July 3, 2013  01:00 PM ET

Umm, a hint to Giants management, you got no-hit last night. You need BATS!

Agreed, hell we could split that and fail together and be blissfully happy.............
