Chamberlain played a key role in the Detroit Tigers exit from the playoffs. Before the break however, Chamberlain went 1-3 with a 2.36 ERA. After the break was not as good, going 1-2 with a 4.97 ERA.

Joba said that he loved being a Detroit Tiger.

"“I loved the experience, from top to bottom, the staff, and the players that everybody is surrounded with, it’s been awesome,” Chamberlain said. “It’s been one of the greatest years of my life as far as personally and on the field. Just to make a lot of friends that I feel I’m going to have the rest of my life is a special feeling.”"

When asked about his future with the team, Chamberlain said, “I’m worried about taking care of an 8-year-old son right now”.

"“I have no idea (about my future),” Chamberlain said. “I’m worried about taking care of an 8-year-old son right now, that’s about the biggest thing, my biggest worry right now. I think he’s taking it a little bit harder than I am. That’s my biggest worry right now, I’ll worry about myself later. I just want to make sure that he’s all right. We’ll go on from there.”"
