With the new and improved Joba Rules now in place, the Yankees have a plan to keep Joba Chamberlain on regular rest while limiting his innings. Let’s look at the remainder of his scheduled starts and try to determine what that plan might be.
It seems evident that Joba’s limit is somewhere around 160 innings, and is currently at 133.2, leaving him with 27 innings for the regular season. This is how I would like his remaining starts to go:
September 4th at Toronto: 3 IP
September 9th vs Tampa: 3 IP
September 15th vs Toronto: 4 IP or 60 pitches, whichever comes first.
September 21st at LA: 5 IP or 75 pitches
September 27th vs Boston: 6 IP or 90 pitches
October 3rd at Tampa: 6 IP or 100+ pitches
This plan would allow Joba to build back towards full strength as the playoffs near, while keeping him in the rhythm that most pitchers find necessary to success. I think that this is the best way for the Yankees to meet all of their needs as well as protect their investment in Chamberlain. Would you plan differently?
