Yankee reliever Joba Chamberlain will be missing most of the 2012 season with a very serious ankle injury. 

Another blow to the New York Yankee pitching staff.  Reliever Joba Chamberlain will be out for most of the 2012 season thanks to an open dislocation of his right ankle, ESPN reports.  Chamberlain was  playing with his son when the injury occurred.

On Thursday Chamberlain has surgery on his ankle which left a flesh wound, and he was suppose to remain in the hospital for several days as a result of that.  Manager Joe Girardi said that they were at a place where jumping on trampolines was going on.  The injury will not allow him to put weight on the ankle for up to six weeks,  and will need serious rehabilitation.
