Joba Chamberlain Injury: Brian Cashman Speaks About Pitcher After Release From Hospital

Two days after dislocating and breaking his ankle while playing with his son on a trampoline, New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was released from a Tampa Bay hospital on Sunday. Chamberlain, who's career may be in jeopardy after losing "life-threatening" amount of blood, is doing, "as good as can be expected," said Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

"That’s obviously terrific and hopefully it continues that way," added Cashman, who spoke to reporters minutes before Chamberlain was released from St. Joseph’s Hospital. Chamberlain, in white pants, a gray t-shirt and wearing a white Adidas hat, was brought out to a white SUV in a wheelchair Sunday morning, clutching crutches and sporting a large cast on his right root.

According to Anthony McCarron of the Daily News, Cashman said Chamberlain will wear a cast for six weeks before transferring into a weight-bearing boot.

"Obviously he’s been dealing with a lot, but he’s a healer," Cashman said. "He gets hurt, but his healing process is really significant. We’re counting on that in this case, too. That’s why my heart, my guy tells me he’s going to be OK. I hope I’m right on that. I can rely on the history that he’s had a lot of stuff take place and he resolves it. He heals a lot quicker, so hopefully that’ll be the case here."
