Tigers | Joba Chamberlain signs

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:45:19 -0800

Free-agent RP Joba Chamberlain (Tigers) has re-signed with the Detroit Tigers on a one-year contract. He will receive a $1 million base salary plus a $100,000 incentive for reaching 35, 40, 45, 50 and 55 plate appearances. RP Chad Smith was designated for assignment to make room on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Chamberlain carries middling fantasy value under his current situation unless Joe Nathan and Joakim Soria both go down with injuries and are ineffective once again. Still, keep an eye on Chamberlain for deeper league formats.

Tigers | Looking for setup man

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 13:26:28 -0700

Fantasy Tip: That's support for Joe Nathan, who has struggled a bit lately. Joba Chamberlain is next in line for Tigs saves under this current roster construction.
