Just to get this out there now: The x-rays on Joba’s right knee came back negative, and he is listed as day-to-day with a bruised knee. Based on the picture at NJ.com, it appears as though Joba was struck slightly below his right kneecap. Joe Girardi is “hopeful” that the right-hander will make his next scheduled start. One thing is for sure: Joba will have a nasty black-and-blue mark tomorrow. We’ll have more on the game in a bit.
