New York Yankees pitcher, Joba Chamberlain, recently became hospitalized with an open dislocation in his ankle. The 26-year-old suffered the injury when he was playing with his son. 

"As we understand, they were at, they have these kids' places where you jump on trampolines and stuff like that," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday.

He had surgery on Thursday and is expected to stay there for a couple of days.

Team manager, Joe Girardi, said he talked to Joba for 30 minutes as they had an emotional conversation.

"(Joba) was OK. What he's going through is very difficult, because you work your rear end off for nine months, and you get real close to doing what you wanna do again, and you have a setback," Girardi said. "And it's crushing for him. It's difficult for him. My heart goes out to him.

"We're behind him, we're gonna take care of him, we'll get him back. But right now, he's going through a hard time."

I wish a speedy recovery to Mr. Chamberlain.
