From PA (LoHud):
Joba Chamberlain will be in the rotation moving forward, meaning he will pitch every five games. They decided he needed to pitch more regularly. The innings limit hasn’t changed. Some starts will be less than five innings.
So, if Abraham’s report is correct, Joba will remain on a regular schedule and will not be given extra rest (he’s already on track to start Sunday on regular rest). I wonder if this is due to his awful outing against the Rangers which came on 8 days of rest? Shorter outings mean a lot of extra work for the Yankee bullpen in the final month of the season. I understand the need to get Joba ready for both October and the future, however, I hope it doesn’t come at the expense of the relief corps.
