Yankees.com – Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain underwent surgery Thursday night for an open dislocation in his right ankle, general manager Brian Cashman said Friday morning. An open dislocation is one in which the bone protrudes from the skin. It’s conceivable that Chamberlain could miss all of the season as a result. Chamberlain was playing on a trampoline with his son, Karter, when the injury occurred.
You can’t make this shit up. Joba Chamberlain’s ankle was poking through the skin… because he was playing on a trampoline. The guy just got back from Tommy John elbow surgery, and now this. I pray that his contract has a strict no trampoline clause so he doesn’t see a single penny. Gross injury, hilarious story.
