New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was hoping to spring back into Major League Baseball action this season. Now it seems a bizarre trampoline accident will keep the frequently injured pitcher from the field for much longer.

The New York Daily News reported Friday that Joba Chamberlain lost so much blood Thursday when he hurt his ankle while playing with his son that there initially was concern for his life. A Yankees’ source said...

“At the very least, the gruesome open dislocation of Chamberlain’s right ankle could be career-threatening and probably will preclude Chamberlain from pitching for the Yankees this season.”

Prospects of a return from the injury aren’t yet known. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney...

“After his emergency surgery Thursday night, the Yankees have no idea how this could impact his career.”

The injury means that Chamberlain now faces yet another long path back to baseball action.  Even before this injury, he wasn’t expected back until mid season, if then, because he was rehabbing from Tommy John surgery he underwent last June. WFAN’s Sweeny Murti says...

“It sounds like it was such a significant injury that this is going to take a while. I think the first question is this season lost? And then after that, well you say, okay, well how much more is lost?”  

Chamberlain has been plagued with setbacks since his strong showing as a rookie for the Yankees in 2007. This is Joba’s third major injury since 2008.  The Captain’s Blog: A Daily Look Inside The Yankee Universe, reacts.

“Even though the Yankees may be frustrated by the right handers reoccurring injuries, it would be counterproductive to either take an adversarial position regarding how the pitcher was injured or simply give up on him altogether.’”
