Less than an hour after Joba Chamberlain ''reported'' that David Aardsma, like Joba rehabbing in Tampa from Tommy John surgery, was "doing really well,'' Joe Girardi gave out the real scoop: Aardsma had suffered some soreness after a bullpen session a couple of days ago.

“He’s going through some tests, I believe,'' Girardi said. "He had a setback, so they’re trying to figure out what’s next. Until the tests go through, we won’t know.”

Until recently, Aardsma, who had his surgery last July, about a month after Joba's operation, had been predicting a return to action by mid-July of this year.
