Right handed pitcher Joba Chamberlain, who underwent Tommy John surgery back in June and lost most of the 2011 season, could be out for the entire 2012 season due to an ankle injury according to Jeff Bradley of the Star-Ledger. Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle and had to undergo surgery last night according to Jack Curry of YESNetwork. Chamberlain injured himself while jumping on a trampoline with his son (via Curry). GM, Brian Cashman said it was an “open dislocation,” and it would require Chamberlain to stay in the hospital for several days. According to Curry, Cashman couldn't put a time frame on Chamberlain's return, and when he was asked if this was a “career threatening injury” he said that his heart and guts tell him that no. This is a huge loss for the Yankees. He is a young pitcher with a great arm, so let's hope he can get back soon and healthy to resume his baseball career. In 2011, he was having a good season when he was injured. He pitched 28.2 innings and was 2-0 with a 2.83 ERA. He also had 0.9 HR/9, 2.2 BB/9 and 7.5 SO/9. Throughout his five year career Chamberlain has gone 20-13 with a 3.82 ERA, 0.8 HR/9, 3.5 BB/9 and 9.1 SO/9 in 382 innings in 193 games, 43 of them as a starter.
