Yankees' Joba Has Ligament Tear

Jun 09, 2011 4:45 PM EST

Yankees setup man Joba Chamberlain has a torn ligament in his right elbow, manager Joe Girardi announced Thursday. He is likely going to miss the remainder of the season, according to an ESPN.com report.

"My guess is he probably is going to have to have surgery," Girardi said.

Girardi thought Chamberlain would likely have Tommy John surgery, which would mean he would be out for the rest of the year.
