TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain is to be released from the hospital Sunday, three days after dislocating his right ankle bouncing on a trampoline.
New York general manager Brian Cashman announced the news before the Yankees' game against a Detroit Tigers split squad.
Chamberlain was hurt while playing with his son Thursday at a recreation spot. He needed surgery for the injury in which bone broke through the skin.
Cashman says Chamberlain will be in a nonweight-bearing cast for six weeks. There is no timetable for when the 26-year-old right-hander can resume pitching.
