From Mark Feinsand:
Joba Chamberlain (elbow and ankle surgeries) is slated to throw Friday for the fourth time since starting his rehab assignment last week.

Chamberlain, who threw a scoreless inning Tuesday for the Gulf Coast League Yankees in Tampa, has not allowed a hit or a walk in his four innings, striking out six. He has given up one unearned run.

Girardi called the reports "very positive" on Chamberlain, but said he hasn't started to anticipate when he'll have the reliever back.

"I haven't done that because he hasn't went back-to-back yet," Girardi said. "I think once we get him going back-to-back I think you'll have a better idea.

"You want to see how he responds the second day. Those 30 days are ticking."
I have nothing more to add. Just another piece of good news on the Joba front.
