Spoke to Joba Chamberlain this morning. He is due to pitch again on Thursday but doesn’t know if it will be as a starter or as a reliever.
“They haven’t told me anything,” he said.
With the season starting March 31, the Yankees will have to make a decision soon so he can prepare.
Notes: Mike Mussina will start a minor-league tomorrow afternoon with Jose Molina catching him. … Mariano Rivera will work in a different minor-leeague game. … If you’re in Tampa, don’t bother coming to Legends Field tomorrow. Those players not going to Virginia Tech have the day off. … Boston manager Terry Francona was generally insufferable before the game, snapping at every question he was asked. A championship and a new contract didn’t change his disposition apparently.
