It looks like the Yankees have mapped out Joba’s plans for the remainder of the season. The Yankees have told Chamberlain that he will make six more starts during the regular season. He’s also been told to relax on off-days, and he doesn’t necessarily have to pick up a ball.

That’s the reason the Yankees obtained Chad Gaudin. He will make spot starts when Joba is out.

What Joba had to say about all of this…

“It’s better, just so you can have it in your head,” Chamberlain said. “I have an idea of what the plan is pretty permanently. … I think one training wheel is off and the other might be off [in the postseason].”

Cashman and Girardi have already said that Chamberlain will start in the postseason. I’m sure you won’t see him in the ALDS though, but that all depends on the amount of days in between games. The ALDS should go something like Sabathia-Burnett-Pettitte. The next choice would obviously be Joba. Pettitte should be taken over Chamberlain in a big game.
