NEW YORK (WFAN) –  Joba Chamberlain has been placed on the disabled list with a strained flexor muscle, Joe Girardi said on Wednesday.

Chamberlain will be out at least 10-14 days and then may resume throwing. After resuming throwing his return will be three to four weeks away at a minimum.

Girardi said that Chamberlain likely has been pitching with the issue for a short while.

Hector Noesi was sent to Triple-A. Amauri Sanit and Jeff Marquez (claimed today from White Sox) were called up.
