Joba to Return to Bullpen

Today will be the first time that Joba Chamberlain will throw off a mound for the first time since he left a game in Texas on August 4 with rotator cuff tendinitis. Relatively soon, he will be activated from the disabled list, and will pitch not as a starter, but as a reliever. The reasoning behind this is that there is limited time left in the season, and the Yankees do not want Joba to spend time making rehab starts in the minors. So he will be stretched out in the bullpen, much like he was earlier in the year. I'm not sure I like this move, because I'm afraid another transition might be stressful on Joba's arm, and a minor league rehab stint would better. I would be fine with Joba being in the minors, becuase I don't think the Yankees are going anywhere, so why put unnesecary stress on Joba's arm?
