Yankees' Chamberlain has ankle surgery
TAMPA, Fla. The New York Yankees say reliever Joba Chamberlain has had surgery after dislocating his right ankle while with his son at a play area. There is no timetable for his return.
General manager Brian Cashman said today that bone had broken through the skin and Chamberlain had surgery Thursday night. He will be hospitalized for at least a few days.
Cashman says the accident happened Thursday afternoon while Chamberlain and his son were at a Tampa-area spot that has trampoline equipment. The team is not saying whether Chamberlain was using any of the equipment.
Chamberlain is scheduled for an MRI exam and CT scan today. He is already returning from elbow ligament replacement surgery.
