From Erik Boland of Newsday comes this update on Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain, who suffered a life-threatening dislocation of his right ankle Thursday while jumping on a trampoline with his son:

Chamberlain required an emergency ankle procedure, which will tack on another few months to his already-well-underway recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 26-year-old reliever is aiming to return to a mound in July, according to the New York Post, with the hope of rejoining the Yankees’ active roster at some point this summer. But both of those goals seem overly optimistic.
