YES Network's Jack Curry reports that the Yankees right-hander dislocated his right ankle while playing with his son on a trampoline. Curry spoke to Cashman about what sounds like a gruesome injury, and the Yankees general manager told Curry that it was an "open dislocation" that will have Chamberlain in the hospital for a few days.
Cashman wasn't able to give Curry a time frame for any sort of return, but he did mention that it was a significant injury. Cashman indicated that he doesn't think it was a career-threatening injury, telling Curry, "I'd'like to say no [to it being career-threatening]. My heart and my gut tell me no."
It's obviously a big setback for Chamberlain who was on his way back from Tommy John surgery.
