Joba Chamberlain, a member of the Winnebago Tribe who plays professional baseball, has suffered a temporary setback.

Chamberlain, 30, was placed on a 15-day disabled list after experiencing pain in his chest, according to news reports. The decision came after he pitched in a game in Massachusetts on Saturday.

Chamberlain just signed with the Cleveland baseball team last month. He previously played for New York, Detroit and Kansas City.
