With Joba’s needing more work now that he’s on the way to the starting rotation, the Yanks will juggle pitchers this weekend. Mike Mussina, coming off of a long 0.2 inning outing, will pitch on short rest on Saturday with Joba coming in for three innings in relief. Chien-Ming Wang and his aching calf will get an extra day of rest, and the Yanks’ ace will pitch the Sunday game on a week’s rest. His sinker may be up with so much time off so look for his secondary pitches at the outset.
