 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Joba Chamberlain could be headed back to the bullpen officially this week.
Chamberlain said he expects to meet with New York manager Joe Girardi and pitching coach Dave Eiland on Wednesday to discuss his role. The right-hander went 2-0 with an 0.38 ERA out of the bullpen last year during his first season.
Chamberlain has worked as a starter this spring, and eventually will join the rotation. But with five other healthy starting pitchers in camp, he is expecting to be the setup man for Yankees closer Mariano Rivera when the regular season starts.
``I knew the situation of what was going to happen,'' Chamberlain said Monday. ``I was hoping everyone would stay healthy, and I'd get the chance to do whatever they had set for me.''
Chamberlain threw 40 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, which included 23 from the stretch.
``My arm strength is good, and I felt loose in my last outing,'' Chamberlain said.
Chamberlain said the biggest adjustment he would have to make going back to the bullpen would be the daily routine.
``It's more of the routine of sitting down there and getting your body going from a standstill.'' Chamberlain said.
