Moose Calling in Harrisburg?

Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina will throw another bullpen session tomorrow in Tampa. If that goes well, he reportedly will make a rehab start on Friday before being reactivated.

According to Sunday's New York Post, Mussina would prefer that the rehab start be anywhere but in Tampa, where he has been rehabbing since going on the DL a week ago and recently also spent seven weeks of spring training. That means either a visit to Columbus, Ohio with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre or one to Harrisburg with the Thunder.

Harrisburg's stadium has to be the worst in the Eastern League; it's certainly the worst one that I've seen. I can't imagine that the Yankees would want to send a rehabbing major leaguer there unless they had absolutely no other choice. Plus they know Columbus from having had their Triple-A affiliate there for over 25 years. So my guess is he goes to Triple-A.
