The Braves and Giants have an interest in Joba Chamberlain, according to George A. King III and Dan Martin of the New York Post.
Braves scout Jim Fregosi watched Chamberlain pitch last Friday against the Orioles. Meanwhile, the Giants sent scout Lee Elder to Target Field for last night's Twins-Yankees game exclusively to watch Chamberlain. The impending free agent has a disappointing 5.75 ERA and 22/10 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings this season, but his velocity is still in the mid-90s. The Yankees aren't expected to bring him back in 2014, so they could be able to get an interesting piece in return.
