Chamberlain likely out for the year with ankle injury

ESPN is reporting that New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain has suffered an open dislocation of his right ankle while playing with his son on Thursday.

According to ESPN, Chamberlain had surgery on Thursday night at St. Joseph's Hospital, and is expected to remain in the hospital for several days for the injury, which resulted in an open flesh wound around the ankle.

According to Dr. Michael Kaplan, ESPN's medical analyst, Chamberlain will likely miss most of the season, as the injury leaves him unable to put weight on the leg for four to six weeks. A lengthy rehabilitation that includes range-of-motion and strengthening exercises will be needed.

Camberlain wasn't expected to be ready to pitch until June, even prior to the injury, due to rehabilitation from Tommy John Surgery he received last June.
